Its getting beyond a joke now. Last year i killed the drive with the last 5 years of my photos and portfolio on. Then last week my laptop expired and then last night i barely touched another 500gb external drive in the process of adverting a tea-tastrophy. What happens instant drive death - it wasnt even writting to the damn thing at the time either. FFS.
I now have one dying DSLR, one defunct laptop and two dead external drives and not a single photo to show for 5 or 6 years of photograpghy.
The bitter kick is that both times i have lost drives is been on the cusp of either selling work or being ask to do more work/exhibt my photos.
I think its time to accept that im not intended to be a photograpgher.
