My world is the Apple ecosystem. That’s not to say Windows systems aren’t great photo editing systems - they are! But on these pages, I share what I know and what I use.
Apple iMac 27" 5K
The iMac is where most of my photo editing and all of my video editing happens. When I buy a new system, I max out processor speeds, graphics cards, and memory. I aim to get 3-4 years out of a system.
G-TECH G-RAID Studio W/ Thunderbolt
I use a pair of G-Tech G-RAID Studio Thunderbolt drives, a master and backup, for all my photos and videos. Mine are currently at a capacity of 8TB each. Read my post on my backup strategy for more details.
Seagate 8TB USB 3.0 External Drive
I cycle a pair of 8TB drives as a third copy of my photos & videos and for offsite storage. I don't need the Thunderbolt speeds for archival copies of my work.
