Detailed diagram of the photography workflow I'm usingThe STORE system for organizing digital pictures.

Here’s my story…the short version

I’m a dad and soon after my first child was born I became completely overwhelmed by how many digital photos I was taking. I couldn’t find any of the photos, and every day when I would transfer more photos to my computer…well I just piled them somewhere without any sort of organization. I was lost!

Over the years, after reading and trying everything, I have developed the simplest and most efficient system for organizing my digital photos. I call my system STORE. system because it covers everything about digital photos and videos: Shoot, Transfer, Organize, Retrieve and Export.

Today my wife and I have thousands of pictures…actually more than 100,000 pictures and videos. Yep, that’s right, one hundred thousand pictures and videos! (See the latest count here)

The cool thing is that today we know where everything is and when I transfer new pictures…well, they go where they are supposed to go and we can easily find any photo we’re looking for. It all makes sense and works! (Read the long version of my story here)
