Photographers spend a lot of time trying to get the perfect photo, and a lot of that time is in the sun. Photographers prefer Tilley hats because they are functional for working behind a camera. The broad brim protects the face, ears & neck from the sun but is flexible enough to keep out of your way when shooting. The brim can also act as a camera shade. Tilley hats are lightweight, breathable and the fabric has a UPF 50+ sun rating – the maximum given. Most Tilley hats are so durable they are guaranteed for life against wearing out. So the next time you spend hours outside to capture the perfect moment, take Tilley with you – the best hat for photographers.
