  1. Hey dude, I use LR like you. I find that it’s easiest when you have a separate catalog for each project. I store the LRCAT in a project folder along with the working files on the desktop. Then, when I’m done with the files and have exported them, I drag the working files, exported jpegs, and the LRC to an external drive.

    I hope that helps. – Rodger

  2. one word, complicated.

  3. WOW

  4. how many projects per year you have. because we as a architect we save our CAD plans like

    year_project no._project name_fase_type plan__version date (CO=Conceptual)

    2012_03_Project XX Amsterdam_CO_10.01_20120928this is only for CAD plans.

  5. Hello there, do you know “MagicSFXphoto” (google it)? On their website you can watch a useful free video explaining the best way to make awesome photographs. It helped Joe to make photographs that leave you with a jaw-dropping-effect after you take a look at them. I hope it helps you too…

  6. Do you create an Aperture library for each project? How/where do you store the library? I work with Lightroom and thinking about storing an LRCAT along side the raw files it references, with a new catalog for each project. Recommendations?

  7. Nice to see someone who understands data redundancy. I keep my photos on a small Raid 5 SAN at home which rsync’s offsite to a folder at my web host and I keep a copy of everything on my laptop, which wirelessly backups with TimeMachine to a USB disk attached to my Airport Extreme. I don’t have near as much data, just my photos from my D700, but very similar redundancy.

  8. We are small time wedding videographers, but we have been doing something similar with our data backups (just not ont that scale). We’ve learned a few new “tricks” from this video and we’re optimizing our workflow now. Thank you Jarvis for the video! We’ve worked with probably a hundred different photographers and very few understand how important data redundancy is. You guys rock!!!

  9. People really fail to understand how much work goes into being a photographer!!! Much respect!!

  10. I understood nothing but right on

  11. Ég er ekki alveg viss hvort það sé heilbrigt!

  12. chase jarvis is the CIA

  13. yall are really doing it man this was a nice setup here

  14. I keep my copies in Africa just in case if there’s a world wide flood.

  15. Oh, I got it 😀

  16. For those who shoot digital cameras two “mirrored” hard drives would be enough. Even if they are vacation and family photos, hard drives are cheap these days and that will protect you from a hard drive failure.

    If you are in business, a third off site “secret” place will save you from a direct hit by an atom bomb.

    Anyone else who is shooting with a RED or other high end video camera knows how to store their stuff.

    although it does suck when you lose all of those pictures because you don’t backup your data, which is what this particular video is about

    you must have an awesome life, whats it like living in black and white?

  19. What do they do, if nothing happens? Do they make an extra copy just to burn it?

  20. Transferring Master raw files through a software program is a huge mistake and a no no. Wow I can not believe these guys actually do that.

  21. I liked Chase when he started and included his schooling in philosophy. He’s now become a commodity and teaches commodity skills, like fancy gear and marketing.

    It only takes a decent camera body and 2-3 lenses to create the best photographs. It does not require purchasing anything else. Spend your time learning the arts and history of photography if you want to make a name for yourself. It costs very little to succeed in our trade. Hone your craft, not your gear.

  22. True that. There are gear heads, and then true photographers out there with one old body, a couple of lenses and one hard drive. They get by.

  23. Man if Steve Jobs had never stolen that Xerox Parc operating system so many poor workers never would have gotten a job building ipads. LOL! ong way fro Quadra video stations, good vid.

  24. Very nice - however, bombproof is a tad optimistic, given that any moment, with no warning, Apple may, can and does discontinue applications. Does not inspire confidence, as many fcp users have found out the hard way.
