Photographers who are working with children often have to use props to get the child to laugh. To make this job easier they attach various small stuffed animals to their lanyard. This strategy allows them to quickly alternate between the prop and the camera.

The lanyard can be used as a neck strap. Many photographers have to have their camera hanging around their neck for hours at a time.
