photographers – back-up plans for disaster
A photographer’s studio in New York state, showing the damage that was caused by unexpected flooding during Hurricane Sandy. For all the damage to photo equipment and computers, no data was ultimately lost! (Photo used with permission.)
My own family was very fortunate in that we weren’t hurt or sustained damage to our property. The worst we had to endure were the four days without power. There are so many heart-rending stories of lives lost and lives disrupted with the storm, that it just highlights how lucky most of us in the North-Eastern USA were during all this.
With the news so vividly fresh in everyone’s mind, I would like to use this moment to speak urgently to photographers … and anyone who has data that is important, whether personally or for your small business.
You have to think in terms of worst-case scenarios.
