Photography Job Tips: Bringing a Memory Card Reader

Whenever you're out on a photography shoot there are some important pieces of equipment that you should take with you. One of the most important is a memory card reader. Almost all cameras will use flash memory cards to store photos on and these can be accessed on a computer using a memory card reader.

Memory Card Readers

A memory card reader is a small device which plugs into the USB port on your computer. This is designed to accept one or more types of memory cards. Once it is inserted the memory card will be displayed as a drive on your computer which makes editing the contents very easy.

The Need for a Memory Card Reader

There are a couple of reasons why you should take a memory card reader with you. The first is because it will give you a chance to show your clients their photos in all their glory in case they ever ask. Perhaps a more important reason is just in case you ever find yourself running out of space on your memory card.

Deleting images is one option. However this is far from ideal. By taking a memory card reader with you, or a computer which has a built in reader you will easily be able to download your photos and free up some space on your memory card.
