Whether you’ve been taking pictures for 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 a perfect photography shirt can be time-consuming, though, since there are hundreds of designs on the market. To save you time, here’s a list of 30 cool t-shirts for you to look through. Many of the shirts below are available in different colors, too, so if you like the design but not the color, click through to see all the options.

Cameras have a long history of looking cool. Besides their beauty, though, vintage cameras can be nostalgic 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 make the people you’re photographing feel more relaxed, so you’re more likely to get natural smiles and candid looks.
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.
