Whether you’ve been taking pictures for 30 years or just got your first camera, wearing a photography-themed t-shirt is an easy way to show off your passion. (That, and wearing a big camera around your neck.)
Besides sharing your hobby or profession, a photography shirt can also be convenient to wear for outdoor photo shoots. Then, you won’t get any of your other clothes dirty as you lie on the ground or lean against grungy buildings, trying to get a great shot.
Finding that perfect photography shirt can be a little time-consuming, though, since there are hundreds of designs on the market. To save you time, we’ve chosen 20+ t-shirts for you to look through. You can even scroll down to the category that suits your style best: Vintage Cameras, Funny, Cool Designs, and Inspiration.
If you’re looking for a special gift for a photographer, be sure to check out our list of unique gifts for photographers, too. You can also browse our gear category for some of the latest tempting products. Although, if you’re trying to save money, you might want to stick with t-shirts for now.
Cameras have a long history of looking cool. Besides their beauty, though, vintage cameras can provoke nostalgia and make you rethink your approach to photography. After all, famous photographers like Ansel Adams took breathtaking pictures with film cameras, not DSLRs.
Wearing a vintage camera on your shirt can remind you not to get too caught up in the latest gear and best DSLR, but to focus on what really matters: knowledge, experience, and technique.
A funny t-shirt can help start conversations and build relationships, a key part of portrait photography. Showing your sense of humor can also make the people you’re photographing feel more relaxed, so you’re more likely to get natural smiles and candid looks.
Finally, remembering to laugh can help you loosen up, too. With less stress, you’ll not only enjoy the shoot more. You’ll also be more open to new ideas and possibilities.
Only Photographers Would Understand
These shirts are perfect for connecting with other photographers. You can wear them to a photography meetup or anywhere, really, to find like-minded photographers in a crowd.
These shirts show your love for photography in their interesting designs. You can choose something subtle, like a beautiful camera lens, or something more obvious, like a camera over your heart.
These shirts remind you (and anyone else who reads them) of the important things–besides photography, of course.
