3 Tips for Keeping Your Photography Studio Organized

Chaos in the studio leads to time wasted, frustration, and an unsafe work environment. Keep your studio organized with these tips!

Organizing Seamless Paper and Diffusion Rolls

JerkStopper ProTab Cable Ties aren’t just for keeping cables untangled and well maintained. The large ProTab cable ties are perfect for wrapping around seamless paper and diffusion rolls to keep them from unraveling.

Rob Grimm from RGG Photo has a great technique for organizing and storing seamless paper and Rosco diffusion rolls in a safe, and out of the way place using L-brackets, screw eyes, and dowels. Check out how he sets it up in the video below.

Creating a Studio Stand Rack

This solution comes to us from Robbie Sokolowsky, owner of the Tribeca Journal Studio who build a C-stand rack by mounting Rock Solid Hex J Hooks directly into wooden planks on the wall. By storing the stands horizontally this allows for safe keeping, easy viewing, and quick access.

Keeping USB and Power Cables Tidy

A quality tethering cable is an investment and proper care and storage will help you get the most life out of it. Inside your USB cable are sensitive wires and shielding designed for fast transmission speed and noise-reduction. Although fairly durable, if folded, bent or pinched you could experience communication errors. Plus, there is nothing worse than showing up on set with a bag full of cables, ends damaged and a tangle mess. So, keep everything organized with a Tether Tools Cable Organization Case.

When you’re in the studio working, you need power for lights, computer equipment, etc., so having power available is a must. But having a power strip laying around on the floor is a trip hazard and could lead to damaged equipment either from the pulling of cords or people stepping on plugs and connections. If you want to mount a power strip or surge protector to round or flat surfaces such as carts, tables, strands, tripod legs and the Aero PowerMount is an innovative solution.
