Last week, we shared with you a collection of ‘Ultimate Travel Photography Tips.’ Today, we’ll further assist you with streamlining your travel photography workflow with this helpful video from Steve Perry.

Just shy of seven minutes long, the video walks through a number of tips and methods for properly storing, backing up and archiving your photography while on the road. Just one of the many aspects Perry highlights in the video is the benefit of changing the file name prefixes in your camera as to not run into any duplicate file names while importing photos.

The video might be directed at travel photographers, but even more permanent photographers could pick up a few lessons from the video. Press play and take some notes. It’s a great weekend watch full of tips you can start implementing immediately.
