The acronym DPH is one professional photo organisers like us use frequently with our clients and our colleagues. But what exactly is it? How do you get one? Where do you put it? Why should you use one? Those are all great questions. As event managers in our past lives we love addressing the traditional project management type questions of WHEN, WHERE, WHO, WHAT and WHY, so let's apply those to this topic!
Recently someone contacted me to discuss how I could help them with their photo collection. They mentioned that they had just been on a 3 week holiday and had come home with 18,000 (yes thousand) photos from that trip. On hearing that number I knew instinctively that was too many!! Too many to store, too many to use and too many to enjoy. Surely this kind of digital photo overload could only be a burden. Just thinking about that number made me tired. So, I started to ponder and research how can I help highlight the importance of taking fewer photos.
You may remember back in April, I wrote about being called a Pirate searching for buried treasure. Today I wanted to share with you some of the reasons I love being a photo organiser and I thought I might have a go at sticking with the Pirate theme.
In part 3 of our video series with Danielle from Declutter Life Jo talks about setting realistic goals, the importance of stories and benefits of organising your photos.
