Digital Negatives On Custom USB Drives

As a professional wedding and portrait photographer , I am always looking for better ways to provide my clients digital negatives. I used to put them on a CD/DVD with a custom made label.

Becoming A Second Shooter/ Photographer

I am not sure if you have heard the term “seconder shooter or second photographer” before. In case you haven’t, this is what it means – you will shoot/photograph for a professional wedding photographer in return for you will get to use the images that you have taken to build up your portfolio or you will get paid (the main photographer will give you a SD or CF card(s) at the beginning and then at the end of the day you will give that or those cards back to the photographer. You might not be able to use the images.) for it.
