Let's face it - if there's a pro photographer in your life, they already know what they need, and what they want. But if you've got a loved one whose Instagram is starting to look a little more polished than usual (and it's not because they are stealing stock photos), these gifts might be just what they've been hoping for.

Photographer Vincent LaForet took his camera and a helicopter and captured the City of Angels at night like no one has ever done before. The detail in each shot is unbelievable and the colours almost feel unreal. It's like seeing a neon glow spread itself all across the giant, beautiful city that is Los Angeles.
I love the mystery of Robert Burn's underground tunnel photography. They look like portals into another world, entrances to alien homes and haunting, unused gateways leftover from a different time. But they're just photographs of tunnels in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that have been perfectly lit and captured to heighten the supernatural aspect.
These time-slice photographs of Shanghai and Hong Kong are beautifully unreal. In each photo, photographer Dan Marker-Moore captures an entire day of those amazing cities from one vantage point. You see day shift into night, sunlight giving way for city lights and it all adds up for photos that looks absolutely stunning.
My God, take a look at these photos. Master photographer Vincent LaForet captured San Francisco in such incredible detail and in such a fascinating perspective that it's truly breathtaking. You can see the entire city -- all 11km by 11 km -- stamped on the Earth with its beautiful bridges stretched across the sea.
Artist Natalie Fletcher masterfully blends people's bodies into the surrounding landscapes with body paint. I love her work because she sometimes leaves the head or eyes of the model untouched which creates a jarring image of a floating body part. Every other body part is painted so well it fades into the background.
Lieutenant Chris Nigus sent us these series of spectacular photos taken while flying on missions during the last couple of years of his deployment in Japan. Above you can see him flying low level in Japan's Orange Route. Some of them show weapons firing from his F/A-18E Super Hornet.
After capturing the most amazing images of New York ever, Vincent Laforet is using the same technology to photograph other major cities around the world. This is Las Vegas. The results are even crazier than NYC -- with this unprecedented clarity and from this vantage point, Sin City looks like the world of Tron. Unreal.
These pictures by photographer Rebecca Rütten made me laugh so much because she re-created Renaissance-era poses and still life paintings with people today and a whole lot of junk food. It's a wonderful commentary on our culture and is pretty much what the Renaissance would look like, if it happened in 2015.
British photographer Julian Calverley recently got a gig in the Faroe Islands, in Denmark. He used the frequent dead times during the shoot to take some pictures of the surroundings with his camera phone. The result is this stunning collection of otherworldly landscapes that makes me wish I was there right now.
