Dis­as­ter man­age­ment

NPhoto - - Lead Feature -

Back­ing up your work is key: you might have weeks of ir­re­place­able pic­tures with you at any one time, and loss, theft or dig­i­tal cor­rup­tion are all pos­si­bil­i­ties. I al­ways make three back-ups be­fore I will reuse a card. First I im­port all im­ages into Adobe Light­room on an Ap­ple Mac­Book Pro, which is then backed up to a La­Cie Rugged drive. I make my third copy us­ing a Hy­per­drive Colorspace UDMA back-up drive. If you don’t have a lap­top then trav­el­ling with a back-up drive and spare cards means you can eas­ily main­tain two copies of your work. Keep one back-up with you at all times – even on a plane! I also take spare equip­ment on trips, and main­tain com­pre­hen­sive new-for-old in­surance in case dis­as­ter strikes. Read the ex­clu­sions to your pol­icy, and stick to them if you want your com­pany to pay out.
