Photo Editing Desktop 2021

My creative desk setup (2021)

A walkthrough of all the computer hardware, devices, and accessories used when editing photos and videos at my desktop

Throughout the year I’ve been upgrading my creative workspace with new hardware and desk accessories to help me be more productive, comfortable and creatively inspired. Compared to a year ago, nearly everything has been upgraded or swapped-out for something different. There’s still more work to do, but I am now working faster and enjoying my workspace more than I was before.

Everything linked below is featured in the video accompanying this post.
