Elena and Chris asked me to photograph their engagement on behalf of Quadrant Studios a few months ago and when it was finally time to do the shoot they were able to secure Orfila Vineyards as the venue. I was excited about the shoot because I had never photographed at Orfila. Unfortunately, we were two months beyond the date when the leaves would have been available on the vines, but the light was beautiful and we managed to capture some amazing images. Here are a couple as a teaser. I'll post the rest on a later date. Hope you enjoy.
Photoshelter created a wonderful info-graphic about 9 Ways Photographers Can Grow A Business in 2014. This does not only apply to photographers, of course. If it were up to me, I would place Focus On Your Marketing Plan as the first item. When starting a business you have to know you are financially capable of sustaining it. Creating a Marketing Plan will be much easier with your finances in place.

According to several sources, if your phone gets wet, these are the best steps to take in order to salvage your phone. These are not guaranteed to work, but they are great steps to ensure your phone will have a greater chance of survival.
1. Turn the phone off. Don't try to test if it still functions, even if that is your instinct. Turn it off and follow the next step.
2. Gather paper towels or dry cloth to set your phone and parts on.
3. Remove the covers, cases, and SIM cards.
4. Avoid moving the phone too much if you can help it so not to spread the water if it has entered your phone.
5. Dry your phone with a towel or dry cloth. Use q-tips to get into any tight areas.
6. DON'T use a blow dryer. If using a small vacuum try not to press it up against your phone.
7. Place your phone in a bowl of rice, rice krispies - materials that will draw out the water or moister. Rotate every hour if possible for a few hours.
8. Test your phone after 18-24 hrs.
9. Buy a waterproof case!
