As an avid traveler and photographer, I have a personal photo library of over 50,000 images. From randomly scanned prints to cell phone uploads, I’ve learned over the years that taking time to organize your photos is just as important as setting up that perfect shot. Having a plan of action and spending a few minutes to organize your images right away will save you hours of searching later! Here’s my formula for keeping your digital photos organized and just a click away:

One of our favorite parts of traveling is looking through all of the photos once we’ve returned home. Sharing images of our adventures with family and friends, realizing we caught a whale fluke at exactly the right time, or seeing a frigatebird spread his wings on film, offers a great thrill.

Since photography is such an important part of our adventures, we often receive questions from guests: Is it really okay to use an iPhone? What’s the best camera for travel? How do I take...
