Almost all of my marketing is concentrated online. I have a one-page glossy handout detailing my bylines and career highlights for the travel industry. I, of course, have updated business cards directing the viewer to my websites and expertise. Other than that, I produce electronic newsletters, blog posts, and try to keep up with social media. The best part of this is that they can be updated as soon as skills change and you aren’t stuck with out-of-date printed materials.

In my studio and at Santiago Canyon College/Community Services, I teach a course “How to Start a Business in 5 Easy Steps”. I mentor new business owners with a specialty in photography.

Let me know if you have any questions about photography, tours, and experiences – email me at julie@jdptravels.com.

Irvine Lake from Fremont Canyon Nature Preserve

Fremont Canyon Nature Preserve

Fremont Canyon is often referred to as “the Yosemite of Orange County” due to its striking beauty and massive granite formations. It is rich in biological diversity and history. The area is also home to many rare, threatened and endangered plants and animals. The Irvine Ranch Conservancy conducts frequent scheduled docent-led hikes and also lead mountain bike rides and equestrian rides enabling nature lovers to experience the canyon’s remote wonders. Registration for docent-led programs is required due to the area’s sensitive habitat, but all programs are free. (LetsGoOutside.com).

The docent-led hike I joined on a recent Saturday morning was informative and mildly challenging. We climbed to the top of the ridge on some continuously steep hills. Our pace included many stops to learn about the flora and fauna where we learned about animal scat and animal tracks. One hiker also made a cast of mountain lion foot prints that were embedded in the creek bed from recent rains.
