We all need to treat our photos like gold dust, and protect them with a reliable backup strategy.Secure your work, protect your livelihood, and make sure you never lose a photo again, with the Ultimate Photo Backup Guide.

The Ultimate Photo Backup Guide is for anyone interested in protecting their photos during all stages of production – from making photos, through to editing and then archiving. 

The Ultimate Photo Backup Guide introduces the strategy I’ve used to secure my images for 10 years – through two hard drive failures and a client spilling water on my laptop(!) – and explains everything you need to know to set a system you can rely on to protect your most valuable asset: your work.

The Ultimate Photo Backup Guide includes:

  • 30+ pages of easy-to-follow instructions for setting up your own backup system
