Building the ultimate gear room for photographers and filmmakers

The folks at Syrp Lab faced this concern, with equipment strewn around all over the location (a common issue for numerous of us) and in charge instructed his group to clean the equipment room and make it more effective. While this setup might be a little overkill for some of us, it offers some terrific tips and suggestions on how we may be able to better store some of our own kit.

Syrps remodeling is certainly a bit on the extreme side, but its not unusual to see this level of organisation in a working studio. Whatever fits and it needs to live in that location in order to ensure that its all simple to get to whenever you require it and to make certain that none of its gone missing out on. Syrps journey starts with purchasing $11Ks worth of shelves and drawers (I informed you it was on the extreme side), however I expect the majority of us will be primarily working with the furniture we currently have.

Cam gear, whether its for photography or filmmaking can be quite the discomfort to shop, particularly if its your career and youre constantly including brand-new equipment to your set. And Im not speaking about buying more gear for the sake of buying more gear, I mean you in fact need all this stuff to offer more services and a better quality of service to your customers. When you work in an imaginative industry that requires an electronic camera, its just the nature of the beast.

Whats intriguing is not so much how much storage they added to the room however how they made usage of it to get the most out of it. I use a lot of 3D printed divider systems here at home that I designed for usage inside store-bought drawers to keep electronics parts and camera bits cool and organised, too.

The charging wall is likewise a fantastic idea, permitting a lot more configurability than your typical charging station. Many charging stations are basically a lot of chargers taped, glued or velcroed to some type of difficult wood back with little room for reconfiguration as old chargers are retired and new ones are included. Syrps system utilizes a metal support board and then neodymium magnets are glued to the battery chargers permitting them to quickly swap them out as needed. It likewise makes it simple for them to pull one off the wall and take it on the road if they require to take a trip with it, too.

Tripod storage also becomes a pain once you get more than a couple of them. I currently have 9 (I believe, Im most likely forgetting a couple of) of various sizes, load capabilities, usages (photo vs video) and storing them all out of the way is frequently a literal balancing act to have them all use up as little room as possible. Syrps wine rack idea is pretty fascinating although, for me, I believe Ill go for wall storage the next time I upgrade my own equipment organisation.

One of the other big advantages of the redesign theyve done here is that it likewise allows the equipment storeroom to act as a studio for shooting in. With everything spread out around the beyond the room along the walls, it leaves the middle of the space totally open for a based on sit or stand to reveal something off at a table. Plus, are you really a photo/video gear YouTuber if you do not reveal off all your gear in the background behind you?

There are a lot of other little pointers darted about the video on how different gear can be kept and how storage systems like drawers and shelves can be customized and adapted to much better fit the gear thats being housed in or on them, so make sure to pay attention.
