 The Organized Small Photography office
Using a small space to maximize efficiency

My home office is only 10x12 with 2 workstations, 3 computers, 2 printers, 3 computer screens and 1 Wacom Cintuq.
I also need to store all my photography
equipment and files. The key to doing this is
Slatwall, the same material you find in many retail store to display merchandise. It allows for growth and quick change without the use of any tools. Shelves can be mover and arranged, hooks can be added or removed as necessary, pictures are easy to hang, It just makes sense when dealing with limited space. File folders of current projects can be placed out of the way but with in easy reach. Plus it's available in colors or plain wood you can paint to fit your design. just make sure your purchasing a heavy grade to handle  the weight. Most retail supply stores handle Slatwall and accessories . It comes in 4'x8' sheets and some Home Depots carry plain unpainted as well.

This design is easy to maintain and helps keep your limited work space neat and things easy to find.  You still need to take a few minutes to return items to their right location. A few minutes up front can save hours later.

(Check below for additional organizational ideas)

 Here I take my personal organizing to a whole new level. The use of colored file folders for different catagories, example: yellow photography info, Green clients, Red financial.
and so on,
