The Traveling Photographer

Recently I wrote an article about traveling without a computer for photographers and film makers. In it, I discussed my forthcoming trip to Prague and Dresden for a 4K video, drone and photography stock shoot.

My end choice of device for the computer-less project was the Kingston Mobilite G2. A wireless hub, card reader and internet modem rolled into one small package.

I am now back from that trip, and would like to share the pros and the cons of traveling without my trusty Macbook Pro.

Thanks for a really interesting article. I tried the wireless hard drive plus iPad a couple of years ago. The LaCie hard drive failed an the second time I used it. It was replaced (under warranty) once I got back to Canada but I lost lots to time (e.g. setting it up and transferring my LR catalogue and photos took days!) Fortunately, I also travel with my MacBook Air. It’s 5 years old now so won’t hold my LR catalogue plus photos. I run LR from a Seagate 2TB hard drive and also have an identical second external hard drive. The MacBook Air is a terrific little (light) machine. Definitely the way to go.
