Best Black Friday deals for beginner photographers


I know when you’re looking to buy your very first DSLR camera you can be completely overwhelmed and have jargon thrown at you left, right and centre.

Christmas is coming and you want to make sure that you buy the right camera for your needs. How do you know what the features do and if you’ll really use them?

Check out my guide to buying your first DSLR to help you through the process.

Here are a couple of cameras that I’d recommend for photographers


Nikon D3400



This wee beauty is perfect for beginner photographers and although I shoot with Canon cameras myself, time and time again this camera is coming out on top in reviews. It’s lightweight making it easy to handle, it has 11 autofocus points so locking onto moving objects is a breeze and the battery life is good for 1200 shots. If you want to shoot some video you can do that too and you can connect it to your phone via Bluetooth.

The Nikon D3400 with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens retails for £429 at Currys. They’re including a free accessory kit and you can pick it up for £354 with the discount code CAM75 until 31st December 2017.

I think it’s worth paying an extra £20 to buy the Nikon D3400 at Wex Photo Video to get the better performing 18-55mm AF-P VR lens which will help to eliminate camera shake when you’re shooting in low-light conditions. You’ll pay £374 with the discount code NIKON-75 until 31st December 2017.

Canon 1300D


If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative and you want to join the Canon camp the Canon 1300D is a great choice for beginner photographers and you can pick it up for £307.49 on Amazon.

Personally I’d go for the Nikon D3400 for better battery life and resolution but the Canon 1300D is still a good performer for hobbyists.

Gift voucher for Photography for Beginners 1-2-1 course in Angus, Dundee and Perth


Yes, I’m getting involved with my own Black Friday – Cyber Monday sale and you can grab a voucher and save an amazing £48 off my 1-2-1 tuition.

You can either treat yourself and buy a voucher now to use later or you could treat a loved one for Christmas. This is an insane deal that I won’t repeat at any other time throughout the year.
