Meet the creator of Protect my Photos, Nick La Galle.

Nick spent more than 20 years working in the media, supporting newspaper photographers using technology to send and store photos – operating at some of the world’s biggest events.

He was at the forefront of the introduction of laptops and film scanners to send photos, and then digital cameras to download in the late 1990s. Nick saw that photo management was always an issue and he decided to work on a system that would help people to not only centralise their images and make them easy to back up. Most importantly, he saw the need for a system that didn’t require a degree in computing to operate.

Protect My Photos is the culmination of years of research, work and refinement, resulting in a solution that is both easy to operate and doesn’t cost a fortune to buy. It couldn’t have come at a better time; faster internet, thanks to the NBN, also made it far easier to upload photo backups online.

After two years of testing with his own extensive collection of family photos, Protect My Photos was born.

Nick’s goal is to help as many people as possible to collate, manage and backup their photo collections and avoid the disaster of losing their precious images.
