Photography is an art that demands creativity, precision, and attention to detail. And where does all this magic happen? On the photographer’s desk, of course!
Whether you’re a professional photographer or an enthusiastic hobbyist, your workspace is essential for nurturing your creativity and productivity. In this blog, I’ll give you some product ideas that can help you organise and enhance your photographer’s desk for better focus, efficiency, and inspiration.
A clutter-free workspace is the first step towards productive photography. My Ikea desk has drawers which has space for desk organisers that can keep your essentials like pens, memory cards, lens caps, and cables neatly organised. I especially love that the set comes with a variety of sizes. A clean desk ensures a clear mind and allows you to concentrate on your photography work without distractions. Everything has it’s place, I love it!
I decided to buy a monitor this year to fit onto of my Ikea desk. This has changed my life in so many ways, I enjoy editing on the large screen and managing different apps on different screens. It’s seamless and worth every single penny.
Extension cable with USB:
Cables can be a significant source of frustration on your desk, I have found the perfect extension cable with USB C ports as well as 4 standard plug sockets.
External Hard Drives:
Photography generates a lot of data. To keep your images safe and organized, invest in external hard drives. Amazon has an array of options that offer ample storage capacity to back up your precious photos and videos. I have an on-the-go 1TB SSD which I used whilst travelling which has never let me down, when I return home I then back up to my sturdy-office 8TB LACIE desk hard drive.
Mouse and Keyboard:
A high-quality mouse and keyboard can significantly improve your efficiency when editing. I have recently purchased a wireless mouse, with a vertical lift which has stopped my hand getting sore whilst editing.
Notebook and Planner:
Despite the digital age, many photographers still prefer jotting down ideas, notes, and sketches on paper. My favourite is this weekly planner which ensures I stay on track for all my tasks.
Cloud wrist rest:
Your photographer’s desk is more than just a place to work; it’s your creative sanctuary. By investing in the right Amazon products, you can transform your workspace into a haven for inspiration and productivity. From organization to comfort and technical precision, these products will help you achieve your photography goals more efficiently. So, go ahead and create the ultimate photography workspace that complements your artistic vision and enhances your photography journey. Enjoy!
Aesthetics are important as well as practicality. My favourite part of my desk has to be my cloud wrist rests for my keyboard and mouse, my wrests stay fully supported throughout the day.
