I use LR and create sub-folders by: yyyy-mmm-location, all within a folder named as my camera (to distinguish from previous cameras and iPhone) and inside the Mac's Picture folder.

I do the same by camera and date. I scan images from film and slides going back many decades (and have had many cameras) and this non-automated method seems to work well. It can also include pictures taken by others.

I should have included location but short of having camera GPS (which I will get, I hope) it's often hard to think of a name that pinpoints location accurately enough for my liking.
