Tips for Organizing and storing your photos
Over the years I have gone from shooting film files to shooting digital files as most professional portrait artists have done. It is a tremendous task and responsibility to store and keep organized all of my clients images. Only one year in nearly 20 we had a shake up with the loss of about 6 months of imagery. That was a sorrowful loss that still upsets me to this day because it is stuff that’s priceless. With clients increasingly wanting to have digital only, I have started encouraging them to store all pictures in the clouds where they can be accessed with a password remotely. I recommend they put it on their computer and save it there as well as having a third external hard drive that holds everything and is for ease of retrieval organized by years.
The idea that digital is there forever may not be a reality and like those of us that have nightmares that their calendars are suddenly wiped clear with no paper backups, there is always the chance that the clouds and the drives fail and are robbed of their contents! As an artist that makes a living creating and printing images, I always tell my clients if you love this image yes i’ll give it to you digitally but we need to print it so your have it for your home and safely under your watch forever!
