“My work as an adventure photographer takes me around the world to remote and sometimes dangerous locations, and keeping my once-in-a-lifetime shots safe is top priority,” said Lucas Gilman, adventure sports photographer and filmmaker. “Working closely with G-Technology, I was able to secure a G-DRIVE ev ATC and took it with me to Peru and Hawaii for recent surfing photo shoots. G-Technology’s newest G-DRIVE ev ATC helped ensure that my irreplaceable images were safe, all while withstanding sandy beaches, bumpy off-road terrain and ocean mist.”
