Photographers and their workflows

Photographers often get tasks which they will be doing all the time in their careers. It is just natural that every serious photographer developed a workflow to do this tasks as efficiently as possible. Below are videos of those workflows and various different approaches to it. Don’t try to exactly copy these because it will probably not suit you but take the ideas and create your own. Unfortunately I didn’t find as many as I anticipated so I would like you to help me complete this collection.  Also, If you already have a workflow that suits you, why don’t you tell me in the comments so we can have a discussion?

I added a few articles about photography workflows after the videos that should give you diverse opinions and strategies. Again, if you have written a post about this yourself let me know and I’ll check it out and add it to the list.
