  • Get dressed in the morning and planning out your days, setting times to do set tasks is super helpful at keeping you proactive.
  • Having a home office is a great idea if you have the room, ideally a separate room is best, so you can go into a separate space just to focus on your work. Closing the door so you don’t get distracted and limiting your coffee breaks.
  • You can pick the times of day you want to work, so if you are a night worker, then work at night rather than during the day, though have your phone on during the day so your clients can contact you.
  • Declutter your work space, try to keep the top of your desk and empty as possible so there won’t be any distractions.
  • Set yourself a list of goals to work towards – make some really achievable and some that you will need to work towards.
  • Don’t work so hard that you are exhausted, have breaks throughout your day taking time to relax, try to only work during the hours you set yourself.
  • Read books on subjects that inspire you during your breaks and when you aren’t working to help keep you inspired and refreshed.
  • Table lamps are better to help you just concentrate on one thing, rather than the room light.
  • Don’t try to rush your work, take your time to make sure that you are always happy with the work, working on more than one project at once is a good idea, to keep your mind refreshed.
  • Most importantly remember to not stress out, take time for yourself and be passionate about the type of photography that you do.
