Backing Up Client Photos

A bird in a tree.

While the fun part of being a professional photographer in Vermont is taking photos, backing them up is just as important.

Every client’s story matters and I don’t want to lose their images!

Backed up in Camera

My professional grade Cannon 5d Mark iv has two memory card slots. That means I have both an SD and CF card in my camera at all times. So, every photograph is immediately stored to two places in camera.

Extra Memory Cards in My Bag

I always carry two extra sets of memory cards in my camera bag. Thank you thinkTank Photo for making that easy. In the highly unlikely event a card isn’t working in session, I’m ready. I also have extra cards ready just in case I need more data storage space.

Speaking of my camera bag, I’ve plenty of room for extra lenses and arrive at every session with both backup options and the gear needed to photograph most any situation unfolds. More on that in a future post…

External Hard Drives

Back in my home office, I transfer images to my hard drive and immediately back them up to a external hard drives.

Cloud Backup

Finally, all images are backed up with Backblaze to the cloud. I never erase images from the in-camera memory cards until this process has been completed.

What this Means for Clients

You can relax knowing that you images are safe while you await delivery. Being a professional photographer in Vermont isn’t just about creating stunning artwork. It’s also about ensuring that art is safely stored.

I take great care to ensure my clients receive the highest quality experience from the initial check inquiry through delivery of wall art and digital images. Part of that process is protecting images from a computer failure. Rest assured knowing your images are safely backed up and you will receive your completed gallery soon after your session.
