When we think of a camera cover, most of us relate to using them as protective gear while outdoors in the rain.  Well, rain may not be the only weather condition you will choose to use a camera cover after learning more.

When we think of a camera cover, some us may also relate its value mainly to landscape, nature or sports photographer, and not so much, for a high school senior portrait photographer.

In fact, a camera cover can add tremendous value to any a portrait photographer, especially with the unlimited editing options that the digital age has presented us to enhance an outdoor setting.  Long gone are the days of laser backdrops in a pop-up portrait studio.  Now parents are investing serious money in senior class pictures.


Teens today, don’t want to settle for average or the same when it comes to senior portraits. With so much exposure to the world through the internet, they see so much more diversity and want to showcase a unique portrait that expresses their individual style in a demographic fashion.

All this really means, is that more than likely, outdoor portrait sessions will increase in popularity with teens over the next few years due to the versatility and unlimited options.



In addition to the traditional rain protection that a camera cover provides, one can also be very” beneficial to a photographer’s performance” while working outdoors in many weather conditions, such as;

  1. DIRECT SUNLIGHT – Direct sunlight can cause a glare on a camera screen, making it very difficult to view images and/or adjust manual camera settings.  A camera cover will act as a shield and aid you to see more clearly by omitting the sun’s glare.
  2. REFLECTIONS – Both object and light, occurring near a lot of glass or glare from water can be irritating.  The camera head cover feature will help block these irritations.
  3. WIND – A very windy day (especially on a beach location) can damage your equipment just with the beach sand blowing all around your camera lens.  A camera cover will reduce the chance of sand invasion drastically.
  4. RAIN – Velcro strips allow you to wrap, roll up and secure your camera body and lens to suit according to size and shape.



With the increasing popularity of multiple outdoor locations for portraits with Teens, it only makes sense, now more than ever, to purchase a camera cover that will protect your valuable photography equipment – and be prepared for this years “Class of 2015” clients in advance!
