Best way to imprt/archive 310 GB of Photos+video from external HD to my new MBP

Hello all,

I have recently switched from PC to a MBP. I have around 310 GB of Pictures (9 years worth) and HD Home videos (3+ years worth) that I would like to import/archive onto my MBP.

The download is partially for backup purposes and I would also like to start editing/finalizing some of the HD Video that has been archived for a long time.

The same exact content is "backed up" on two external 500 GB HDs.

Being very unfamiliar with Mac in general and iPhoto-Ivideo in particular, I am looking for the best way to "Import" this large sum of data onto my MBP.

Do I import using iPhoto and Ivideo, or is there another APP (Apple or 3rd party) that would help me import photo+video while keeping the same file and folder structure I am used to?

I have a 750 GB of hard drive space, so space isn't an issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
