I am in the process of remodeling my production studio and I was wondering if anyone has shared photos of their production area so I can see some different ideas? I would love to see a behind the scenes glimpse into the production area of some successful real estate photographers. It would be interesting to see what keeps them motivated and inspired in their workspace during post production.
At first I was a little sassy and told Vic:
No, no one has ever talked about where they work. They talk about how much RAM they have, what post software they use, what kind of desktop or laptop computer they have. But never what their desk or chair looks like or the room their desk is in.
But then Vic came back a pointed out an article at forbes.com about The Dangers Of A Messy Desk and I understood what he was talking about. Yes, how organized you keep your desk and workspace can be a big deal. And it can determine how effective you are. Also, what it looks like has to do with one’s personality. The photo above is my workspace. I could have done a wider shot, but that would have shown a little more mess. Besides, UPS just delivered my iPhone 6 Plus about 20 min before this shot and I was fixated on playing with the new camera and this is a wide as it goes.
So show Vic your workspace and give him your studio design ideas so he can come up with a great design. Things I would do different with my workspace if I had a chance is have a standup desk and have way more closet space than I do to get as much as possible out of sight.
