I don't know if this is the right section, but I want to know or get ideas of how members are setting up their home or business office for their photography workflow. Maybe some details of what kind of lighting, chairs, colors of walls, desk, storage of drives/photos/printers​/etc, decor...... Photos of your work space would be great.

Close your eyes and picture in your mind a disaster zone. That would be mine. But it functions well for me :(

Thought I'd add to this forum and would like to see other's setup as well!

The picture of the yellow tree is a view of me sitting at my desk looking outward.

The wall color is cracked pepper gray color. I laid the floors as well with 5" acacia real wood floors.

The lights are halogen bulbs

The picture of the yellow tree is 40x80 on Fuji flex mounted on acrylic.

The picture of the coast is mounted on acrylic and printed on Fuji flex.

The computer is a macpro with (2)24" planar monitors. There's also 2 printers, out of the frame, on my desk as well, with 6 TB of storage!
Don't know if you can see what's on the shelf, but there's books on photography and several old cameras as props and my phaseone camera.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask!

Thanks for looking!

Oh, you don't want to see my office but imagine this... take a few isles of B&H, pretend that a small tornado came through and ripped everything off the shelves and scattered them everywhere. Mixed gear with an excessive amount of camera bags, tripods, lenses, accessories, computer parts, a ton of books, paperwork and a mini-fridge filled to the brim w/ miller lite and redbull. That's my office.

My office is at home. I work entirely on location shooting real estate, class reunions, and musical groups as well as landscape and nature photography. I don't need a studio space that would require me to pay rent and either stay in the studio or hire someone to keep the door open. I have a nice home office that works well for me.

No matter how you set it up I believe Full Spectrum lighting is a big plus. Basically equal to noon daylight - it shows color well and helps a lot with "seasonal effective disorder" if you tend to get the Blahs in winter or overcast weather.

A track light system with quartz spot/floods to highlight your images on the wall always helps.

Colors? Up to you. I prefer neutral grays and soft accents - but that is just me.
