Travel Photography Tips backing up data on location

Photography Data Management.

I get asked often how I deal with data management when I can be away for several weeks working on a project in the field. Well, there are two things that I need to consider, firstly is it light weight and is it not too expensive. My thinking behind the second is I can buy two and have a contingency plan.

I tend to keep one main backup of my photographs these days on an external SSD drive. This is one of the advantages of using a camera such as the Fujifilm X-Pro2 with its two card slots. I already have the first backup of my images as soon as I have pressed the shutter. To explain this a little further I made a Vlog about a little trip I did and incorporated some thoughts on data backup hardware for the photographer.

If you would like to find out more about the equipment I tend to carry whilst on assignment then skip on over to the “What’s in my bag” section. Here you will find a more detailed look at the sort of items I use for travel and commercial photography trips.
