Se­cu­rity mat­ters

Amateur Photographer - - 7 Days -

I read with in­ter­est Michael Topham’s story about the ill-fated wed­ding pho­tog­ra­pher whose gear was stolen dur­ing the big day ( View­point 14 Oc­to­ber). I also oc­ca­sion­ally pho­to­graph wed­dings and it re­minded me – once again – not to leave my bag ly­ing around out of sight. But it also made me re­alise the real value of any­thing pho­to­graphic – the im­ages them­selves. Pre­sum­ably a pro­fes­sional wed­ding pho­tog­ra­pher can claim for theft on his in­sur­ance pol­icy but the im­ages, alas, can never be re­trieved. The im­ages are the re­ally valu­able items here, par­tic­u­larly for the cou­ple, so all se­ri­ous pho­tog­ra­phers should be scrupu­lous about keep­ing mem­ory cards on their per­son when they are not be­ing used, as we would with debit and credit cards. A full mem­ory card of wed­ding im­ages is, lit­er­ally, ir­re­place­able. Susie Ed­wards
