How do I recover photos from my SD card on M1 Mac?

I am trying to recover SD card photos on my laptop which is an M1 MacBook Pro (2020 Model). I have scanned reddit and the frequently suggested free options like PhotoRec and Recuva seem to not be supported on M1's. And other options seem too advanced for a casual user to properly use. Any suggestions on data recovery tools that would allow me to recover SD card photos using an M1?
