New Rule – 2 year Expiration on Raw files.

Despite storage costs dropping in the last few years, the fact is that I make no money from doing photography.  As a result I am imposing a maximum of 2-years where I keep RAW files safely.  After that, they are subject to deletion at my discretion.

The following criteria will be used to prioritize deletions:

  • Cosplayers / Models / Clients who have severed ties with me.
  • Hallshots
  • Unclaimed Photoshoots.
  • If they do not match current levels of quality.

Currently, I am aiming to get each Calendar year down to at least 24 GB so that they can fit onto Blu Ray disks.  As I don’t have a source of archival-grade discs, I will still have to continue to do deletions as the risk of data loss increases with age.

Note that this is effective immediately.  I will begin the deletion process after Fanime 2018 / During June 2018.
