The Steps

With all you have on your plate, efficiency and workflow become much higher priorities. Not higher than lunch, but close. There are a million ways to manage your time and workload, but there is likely one that will work best for you. Here are a few “gold star” articles and ideas we found. Now get back to it…don’t you have a sandwich waiting?

Brad Mangin's Editorial Photography Workflow
“Brad Mangin has more than 25,000 images (and growing) in his archive. As an editorial sports photographer, he spends a lot of time actually shooting.... Brad has two main clients, Sports Illustrated and Major League Baseball. His shooting approach may be the same for both, but when it comes to workflow, they are very different.” From the PhotoShelter blog.

Develop an Efficient Workflow
“At some point, most photographers develop a series of routines for capturing, copying, and processing their digital photographs. These routines can be sloppy and unorganized or they can develop into a consistent workflow that speeds up the entire editing process. Consistency in how you handle your images after they are shot is nearly as important as the techniques you employ to compose and shoot your images in the field. “Article by Steve Paxton of PictureCorrect.

My Workflow: Kevin Ames
“Ames recommends two key steps that will keep you safe from those ‘interesting’ destinations of lost, or ever worse irretrievable data. First, create a digital archive, using both hard drives and permanent copies on DVDs. Second, develop a process by which you can quickly find and access the images in that archive at any time; no matter if the image is a RAW digital negative or a layered Photoshop document (PSD) several megabytes in size. “
