Back It Up All
As photographers, we have to store a large amount of data for a long period of time. Our data is everything to us, but it is also our Achilles’ heel. PCs die. Hard drives and memory cards can fail. Our gear can be lost or stolen. To safeguard our workflow and sleep easily, it is critically important to establish a reliable backup system and back up regularly. It is our responsibility to provide a reliable storage of the photographs we take.
Copyright registration is optional. Once you’ve made a shoot, you own the photograph. The copyright is instantly yours for a minimum of 25 years*. Someone can use your photographs as long as they credit you. If in fact someone were to abuse your photograph or artwork, you should prove somehow that it is yours. The legal copyright registration provides you an additional in-depth protection on all levels.
Most home buyers begin a home search online, so good photos are essential. Buyers rank photography as the most important tool in searching for a home online. Listings without a photo or with only an exterior shot are often ignored. Outstanding and realistic property photography is an excellent way for you to showcase your professional skills. It also gives you an impressive portfolio with which to attract new clients. Add stunningly realistic high dynamic range photographs to your listings so they can show better and sell faster.
