I make furniture (you can see my work at www.craignutt.com) and I have been good about documenting my work with professional photography over the past thirty-five years. Since most of my work has been sold, what I have left is photographs, mostly 4x5 transparencies, negatives, and slides (along with digital images). If I had a fire, flood, or tornado, this documentation would be difficult, expensive, or impossible to replace. In addition, it would hinder my ability to respond to requests for images from magazines, clients, or for shows. My business insurance would cover some of the monetary value, but the loss of my images would be devastating. So, in my efforts to disaster-harden my career, I focused on my images first.
