A mag-friendly workshop

The GMC workshop has been a hive of activity this last week with fellow editors Mark Baker and Anthony Bailey redeveloping their zones. As workshop real estate goes I must say they have both gone a little up market, which is no bad thing, but it has set the bar rather high for the re-development of the F&C space. Creating an area that meets the requirements of a fully functioning workshop and the production process of the magazine is tricky to say the least.

Shooting photo sequences on a regular basis as we do, there are always lights and tripods in the way meaning that you’re not as free to access all the equipment as you would otherwise be. Stopping every five minutes to press the shutter can get on your wick after a while as well but it’s all part of game.

I’ve got in mind a wall cabinet of sorts to store the most frequently used bits of kit and a dedicated area for sharpening. That could all change before I get round to it though, as I’m going to be away on the week before Easter. If anyone has built storage space that melts into the background when it’s not required then please do get in touch. I may well find myself on the receiving end for a change making one of your projects. Go easy won’t you. In the meantime batten down the hatches for a cold and blustery weekend of weather and I’ll see you on the other side.
