10/24/07: Reward if found...

It still amazes me when I shoot with other photographers who do not put their names / phone numbers on their removeable media / compact flash memory cards. If you have cards that don't have your name on them...go get a fine point Sharpie marker and put your name on your cards RIGHT NOW! And if you ever have paying clients that are relying on you to capture precious memories on your memory cards...you might consider putting "Reward if found" on the cards. A blank 4 GB memory card is probably only worth $50 or so...but if you have wedding or event pictures on a card and that card gets misplaced (or stolen, perish the thought)...you'd probably consider paying a reward to a person who would be kind enough to return that card to you.

While you're at it...put your name and phone number on your compact flash card wallet as well.

Hopefully you'll never have to thank me for this tip...but if by chance you do...you're welcome. :)

Hey Dan-o,

Awesome tip! I am amazed at the stupid common sense things that we don't think to do!! Is that an oxymoron? LOL!

I hope things are well in St. Louis!
