Mac Setup: Amateur Photographer’s iMac Desk

Dec 22, 2012 - 8 Comments

The iMac desk setup of an amateur photographer

This weeks Apple setup comes to us from Pierre C., who uses his Mac for amateur photography and personal use. Pierre moved back to the Mac platform after a significant hiatus with Windows, and prior to this iMac his last Apple desktop was a Mac SE! As it often goes these days, his transition was initially to an iPad, and the jump to a Mac desktop was the next logical step for further integration.

  • iMac 27″ 3.1GHz Core i5 – 16GB RAM – 1TB HD
  • iPad 3
  • Twelve South Hover Bar for iPad
  • Magic Trackpad
  • Magic Mouse
  • Apple Keyboard (French layout)
  • Twelve South Magic Wand linking the keyboard and trackpad
  • LaCie 4TB & 3TB external hard drives for photographs and backups
  • Apple Time Capsule 3TB for Wi-Fi backups
  • JustMobile Mtable (stand for the iMac)
  • Espon 837 Wi-Fi Printer
  • Cable modem

The TwelveSouth Hover Bar holding the iPad looks incredible as always, if I ever had an iMac that’d be one of the first accessory purchases for it, whether for using with AirDisplay or just sticking with iOS.

    I also like that iPad arm, where can I get one?

    Isn’t the point of this to show off your equipment? The keyboard is centered and the touchpad and mouse combo is very practical. Sure, the modem could’ve gone under the desk but maybe he doesn’t necessarily want it lying on the floor.
    Great setup!

    Bad lighting, to cramped on the left side. Why the modem (or what is this in front?) and all the HDs directly besides the Mac? They can go somewhere else. And then the TimeCapsule left of the Mac, on the shelf! Of course, keyboard is not centered, too. That’s just plain stupid and the usual show-off only.

    That’s a great setup! Have something similar at my desk. (:

    I usually don’t say anything about grammatical errors, but you wrote espon, rather than Epson. XD just wanted to point that out.

    • Robbertvdd says:

      That’s not a grammatical error. It’s a typing error, which occurs by accidentally hitting the wrong keys on the keyboard. That’s something different than a grammatical error, which occurs because the person doesn’t know the grammatical rules.

      I’m wondering if Pierre is right-handed or left-handed. I’m right-handed and if I’d use a mouse and a trackpad I’d swap them, so: mouse on the left and trackpad on the right. I’ve got absolutely no problem using a mouse with my left hand, but using a trackpad with my left hand is really difficult.
