LOL....I'm more like the disorganized folks here ! Right now there is various equipment here in the kitchen, some in the living room, some in the camera room downstairs, and there is a bag in the backseat of the truck sitting in the garage. Plus I think there is stuff in the trailer, And there is a bunch of lighting gear over at a friends studio. One camera and lens is with a friend who is shooting an assignment this weekend.
Once in a great while, I actually get organized and it all goes back into the camera room in a more or less orderly manner. Then the cycle starts all over.
I like being able to grab and go when need be.....and so, sometimes my glorious mess makes it hard to grab what I need ! That's why it's good to have backups ! :rolleyes:;)

I must be related to you as that's what my office looks like most of the time :)

I'm like philwillmedia - only worse. Can you tell I'm a widower who lives on his own? I have a living room chair that is my "photography station". OK, occasionally I do put stuff away, but it's nice to just grab what I need, when I need it.

I am ashamed . . .

I stored all my camera, lens and gear with my guns and rifle in the safe =)

Hehe, I was thinking of doing the same, but it's a real pain if you want to grab a quick shot, so I just keep all of it in a big camera bag.

I don't know about the fire safe you got, but most I've seen don't have any padding. A big pistol safe may be better.


Gear: Sold :cry:

I've always got at least one body, a flash and the 70-200 / 17-40 in a Canon backpack ready to go. I keep all the other lenses out on an open table so I can pick and choose at will.

It's not a pretty arrangement, but no bag that I'd ever want to carry can handle all the junk I have, so I just work selectively.

If you are putting it into a fire safe, you need to make sure it is rated for digital media. Most fireproof safes are fireproof for paper only and that is because it is airtight and there isn't enough oxygen to sustain the fire and it can't burn the paper. Media and electronics will still melt and deform and be damaged at much lower temperatures than paper will burn.

I also agree that some kind of off-site backup is essential. Even if it is just a portable HDD that you back up to regularly and keep at work or something. Personally, I use Mozy, which just came out with a mobile App for iPhone/Android that lets you access your backed up files (i.e. ALL of your pictures) directly from the App, which is really awesome.

I have a pelican 1654 arriving Monday according to UPS. Right now I am using a Tamrac Expedition 5 which holds most of my gear and is pretty well padded.

I store my camera gear in the same place I store my other things I shoot . . . in the gun safe that's guarded by two indoor dogs!

The indoor dogs tell me if someone is coming . . . and the dogs are thus guarded a BIG .45 revolver at the least! LOL
