Whether you’re trying to get a fantastic sunrise shot or staying up all night photographing star trails, photographers need their caffeine. Nothing’s better than a perfect cup of coffee or tea to get you going–except, perhaps, for a photography-themed cup of coffee or tea.
It’s one of those things you didn’t know you needed until you got it. A coffee mug that matches your personal philosophy as a photographer, or simply makes you smile before a shoot, can be a great way to start a photography adventure. It can also start conversations and help advertise your photography business.
Here are some options out there for photographers who like drinking their tea or coffee in style.

Other Photography Humor
Camera Lens Mug
This mug can draw surprise, laughs and conversation. It’ll look like you’re pouring coffee into a lens, which might shock your photographer friends the first time they see it. It could be an April Fool’s joke, or just a fun prank. There are dozens of companies that sell versions of this design, but this one gets the best reviews.

Photography is My Therapy
Who needs a psychiatrist when you’ve got a camera, no obligations, and a beautiful weekend?
Love, Beauty, and Photography
Photography is a Love Affair with Life.
If you’re especially proud of one of your photos, why not design your own photo mug? If you’re a professional photographer, you can also put your name or business on the mug. It’s a cheap way to advertise and share your passion with others.
In case all you want with your coffee is a beautiful camera.
It’s why photographers can be poor, yet happy.
It’s Not the Camera
This mug can help you remember to get out and rack up experience, rather than browse new cameras and gear online for another hour.
Masters Worry About Light
This mug combines the charm of vintage cameras with a reminder to smile–which, after a cup of coffee, should be easier.
Be Amazing and Sleep
Keeping your real life goals in focus.
