Podcast 256 : Ideas from the New Office/Studio

My new office, come modest studio, is now just about complete, so today I'm going to give you a bit of a guided tour. Of course, it's not perfect, and if I had even more space, I'd certainly do things differently, but I'm happy with my current space. So I...

    You’ve got a lot of equipment very efficiently crammed into a Tokyo apartment. Impressive.

    And I can verify the humidity of the Japanese summer. It’s pure evil ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the comment Sean.

    It took a little bit of doing, and I think I can rearrange to make the storeroom more efficient, but for now, I’m quite pleased with how things have turned out.

    This Japanese summer humidity is something else right!? I love Japan, but the summers I can do without. The same for the majority of the population of course. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Similar square footage to my studio, but your equipment is so well organized. Having a studio to put thousands of $ worth of gear away is so much better than a closet or two.

    Thanks for sharing your setup and talking us through it. Wish I lived closer so I could pop in once in awhile. But at least we have the interwebs to share with.

    Got to go finish some big frogs now and a toad or two.

    Thanks for the comments Landon and Mark!


    It sure is nice to have this stuff organized and close at hand now. I will rearrange the storeroom later, but still, I’m happy with it all being there, and I still know where everything is.

    I wish you were close enough to stop by once in a while too. I reckon you’ll get the opportunity to come over at some point, and remember, I have a guest room come second studio downstairs now too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow Martin, I am thoroughly impressed with your studio. That is an amazing set up. It gives me some great ideas into building my own studio when the time comes. I have to be honest, i’m new to photography, in fact i just purchased the Canon EOS Rebel T2i as a starting point from which to learn from. I’m in the process of reading the instruction manual cover to cover. Although i am in the adolescent stages of my new found hobby, i am on a quest for knowledge. I came across your podcast and after listening to one of them, decided to subscribe and download all of them. I have already learned a great deal, and have enjoyed listening in the car, on my mp3 player, and even at work(when time permits). You cover many different topics, which i really enjoy. Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and experience. From Las Vegas, Thanks Scott

    Hi Scott,

    You’re very welcome. I enjoy doing the Podcast and helping others, and it also helps me too. People often say that the best way to really learn something is to teach it.

    I hope you continue to enjoy the content I put out, and continue to return.

    Good luck with your photography!
