Ok…this is really a review of storage and backup options for any photographer, not just as wedding photographer and also, the photographers can be anywhere, they don’t have to be near Seattle.
There are a lot of photo storage options out there so it’s hard to choose what to do. Here’s the bottom line:
1) Have 3 different backup and storage solutions for your photographs.
2) Make sure at least one of the storage and backup options is 100% off site.
3) If you are using a Mac with OSX, use:
a. Time Machine as backup option #1.
b. Rotate 2 external hard drives between the Time Machine and keep one of them off-site somewhere
c. Use 2 usb drives configured in a mirrored raid (use Apple’s Disk Utility)
d. Use BackBlaze as the offsite/online backup solution.
Don’t make the mistake I made with photo storage and backup……I believed the marketing hype from Western Digital and thought that by using a raid I was protecting myself….WRONG. The power supply to the raid fried and blew out both drives simultaneously.
In terms of brands, I prefer Glyph Technologies because they 1) Answer their phone with a real human, 2) they are about the only company that has enough faith in their products that they include data recovery as part of their warranty, 3) they use quality power supplies and fans, and 4) they include a good carrying case.
So when you work as a wedding photographer in Seattle, a little advanced planning can save you a lot of grief.
