  1. In Depth: Cloud Storage for Photographers and Filmers

    This post is great. I keep telling myself that this is the year to finally get smart about my photo backups cause it seems to be getting easier and cheaper with each passing year. Not that any of my photos contain anything crazy but I'm still on that old school mentality of having full ownership of my files. I''ve always followed the "3-2-1-" rule. The 3-2-1- backup rule is simple: keep at least 3 copies of your files, each in a different location. I'll have 1 main backup of all the files, then 2 separate backups of the OG file on 2 other backup drives. In a way it's like a RAID setup, minus the raid system (I use 3 total backup drives). Since SSD's are still expensive, I've usually kept 2 backups on traditional external HD's and then 1 SSD copy (to access the files faster, if need be). This year I want to replace one of the 2nd backups with a cloud storage solution, so that the 3-2-1 rule will be 2 external HD copies and then 1 cloud backup of everything else. All this file management is no joke and not going to lie, it stressed me out. Ugh.
  2. Tour De Hasselblad Anyone?

    If its still with Zander, I'm next on the list so maybe I'll grab it from him next time I'm in the city
  3. Trips coming up?

    Went out to LA last year for work and my trip got cut short so hoping to make it out there again sometime this year. Also finally just got my passport renewed so *possibly* going to visit a friend in Japan and if that falls through maybe Australia...
  4. what's up with your website?

    It's 2018 and I've been working on my site since SP went down. Should I finally flip this thing live this year???
  5. What photo stuff happened while SP was away?

    I haven't bought or sold any cameras (or lenses for that matter) since SP went down. I still shoot film but not as much as I used to, I'm probably sitting on about 10+ rolls of undeveloped 35mm and 6 rolls of 120 (some dating back 10+ years at this point). Once of these days I'll get around to developing and scanning it all...

  9. Tour De Hasselblad Anyone?

    I believe Zander might have it? I know it was supposed to come to me next (I think).
  10. Random Photo Discussion

    When I first started making decent money @ my job, instead of going out and buying a new car (like most people my age) I went and bought a desk chair instead. EDIT: Hi everybody (I'm still alive)
