"At a minimum I would recommend the "3-2-1" approach; 3 backups in at least 2 formats and 1 copy offsite. My personal example; I use Crashplan online backup. They allow both a cloud-based backup and a copy onto a local drive. That takes…"

Need ProPanels in California

Hi there -My husband & I have been renting our ProPanels for the last couple of years, but I'd like to look into owning some, to help save some money.  We can't yet afford brand new ones, so I'm hoping to find some used ones for sale.Does anyone here have any ProPanels for a 10x10 tent that you're selling?  We live in the SF Bay area of California, so we wouldn't be able to buy any from out of state, but would be willing to drive a couple hours, if necessary.Thanks in advance,Alyx &…See More

Question for Photographers About Storage

My husband & I are looking to increase our storage space for our images.  We've spoken to a couple IT people & have gotten differing opinions on how to go about this.  One seems to prefer buying external hard drives, while the other recommends going with a company to back up our stuff on a separate server somewhere in the "cloud."I'd like to ask other photographers what you do for storing your pics (both RAW & finished).  Do you have multiple hard drives stashed somewhere?  Do you…See More

Yosemite National Park

Alyx and I find ourselves with lots of great photos whenever we go on vacation. If we took every picture we love and made prints of them, we'd have thousands, and you would spend days and days sifting through them. So, we need to go through a very painful process of choosing which ones we WON'T post and sell on our website.

So, we decided that this Blog was a prefect venue to post some really great pictures from vacations and trips in our past. Here are some pictures that were taken…

The Makings of a Collector?

Posted on June 25, 2014 at 11:30am 2 Comments

A couple of months back I wrote about selling my first piece through a gallery.  As exciting as that was (and it was REALLY exciting), I recently had an even more exciting experience. The person who bought my image called me up and asked if I’d sign the mat board that surrounded the picture.

I’ve seen other pieces where the photographer did that very thing, but it never occurred to me to do it myself.  While I don’t mind having a signature on the back of the picture, I personally feel…
