Better than Black Friday? That’s what Amazon promises Prime Day to be. It’s a lot to keep track of though. Deals begin at different times throughout the day, and it’s hard to know when your favorites will go on sale.

That’s what I’m here for! Photography nerd that I am, I’ve been trolling Amazon’s affiliate emails, Twitter feed, Facebook page, and every other source of info I can find to track down the best photography deals for you. Check back on this page regularly between now and midnight on July 17th when Prime Day ends.

Must Know Prime Day Info

First off, you have to be a member of Amazon Prime to take advantage of these better-than-Black-Friday deals.

I’ve been a member of Prime for years now. Love it. Here are the features I take advantage of the most:

  • Free two day or even same day delivery on just about everything I order.
  • Unlimited photo storage. Yep, unlimited. Prime Photo Storage even works on most types of Raw files. I use this as part of my backup system.
  • Prime Wardrobe – LOVE this! It’s like StitchFix, except you get to choose what goes in the box. Not sure which size or style you need? Order all of them. You’ll receive a box with all of your selections. You have one week to try them on and refill the box with what you don’t want. And you don’t pay anything for 7 days. (I used Prime Wardrobe when I was searching for new running shoes. It was so easy!)
  • Prime Video. We don’t use Prime video as much as Netflix, but it does have movies we want to see frequently.

If you aren’t already a member, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial right here. Cancel after you take advantage of your prime day savings if you don’t want another subscription.

Next, Prime Day lasts from right now (2:00 PM CST on Monday, July 16, 2018, and lasts 36 hours. New deals are available every few minutes and they don’t last long. I’ll comb through them all and update you on the best ones for photographers. Visit this page every so often for my top finds!

My Prime Day predictions: I don’t expect that you’ll be able to get a new top-of-the-line camera on Prime Day, but I could be wrong. It will be better for the less exciting but oh-so-important purchases that are easy to put off: tripods, memory cards, external hard drives, etc.

Have any questions? It can be scary to buy during deals like this where you need to act fast and can’t do a lot of research. Feel free to post a comment below if you aren’t sure about whether a deal you find is worth it.

Amazon had a bumpy start to Prime Day with major server issues. If these links don’t work, be patient!

Seagate Backup Plus Hub for Mac 8TB External Desktop Hard Drive

The crazy thing about this deal is that you get two months of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan with it. Something tells me that you can’t apply that offer to the discounted Photography Plan I mentioned below.

I’ve never used this particular model of external hard drive, so I can’t comment on its reliability. However, 8TB is a great size for photographers. My 6TB external hard drive is nearly full.


Make sure to choose Mac or PC as approprite before ordering.

List Price: $249.99

Prime Day Price: $139.99

Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan with 20GB storage

This one’s big! Save 20% on the Adobe CC Photography Plan. This is the plan that offers Lightroom CC, Lightroom CC Classic, and Photoshop. You won’t see the discount applied until you add it to your cart. You’ll receive a year’s worth of the Photography plan for $96 (just $8 per month!).

Worried that you don’t know Photoshop? Never fear! I have a new workshop coming out at the end of the summer to teach you all about it!

List Price: $119.88

Prime Day Price: $95.90


Philips LED Non-Dimmable A19 Frosted Light Bulb: 800-Lumen, 5000-Kelvin, 8-Watt (60-Watt Equivalent)

Does that 5000 Kelvin description in this product name catch your eye? It should! Lots of you have read my article about the best light bulbs to help you avoid the orange glow.

This is a different brand of bulb, but it’s got that same 5000 Kelvin white balance setting. Fill a room with these bulbs and you’re less likely to get mixed white balance in your photos that contain ambient light and daylight. That’s a good thing!

And this is a great price too! (I just ordered it myself.)

List Price: $47.99

Prime Day Price: $25.79

There’s a good chance I’m going to order this one for myself! Its reviews are great! Features:

  • You can shoot very low for macro shots

  • Shoot straight down for flatlay and food photography.

At this price, this tripod is a good find!
