Photography Workflow Solutions


Whether you’re capturing images of wildlife, fashion models or getting that epic drone aerial shot, you need to back up your footage. Most pros practice a 3-2-1 backup system, which means that they always have 3 copies of their footage to prevent losing anything. SanDisk Professional's pro-grade solutions support photographers from capture to edit with rugged, portable SSDs to powerful RAID drives.

People are investing in you to shoot their campaign or magazine editorial, […] so I’m really insistent about backing up, because I never want to lose data again. I love the portability, very light weight, and durability of the G-DRIVE SSD Mobile drives. When you’re shooting on location, it’s really important to be mobile.

– Ambassador, Dixie Dixon

Offload and Backups

On Location

It’s crucial to check your footage and back up after every shoot. Anything can happen when you’re in the field from bad weather accidents to lost baggage in travel. Most photographers have 3 copies that travel separately just in case one gets lost. SanDisk Professional rugged portable hard drives and SSDs are designed to survive the roughest terrains with IP rain and dust ratings, 2000lb crush resistance, and drop resistance. For faster transfers, check out the G-DRIVE SSD. For more capacity, learn more about G-DRIVE ArmorATD, which goes up to 5TB!
