Married for nine years and a photography team for five, Brian and Jennifer Hartman bring an artistic touch and approach to their on-location photography. Employing a photojournalistic style and dramatic lighting, they capture solo subjects and groups during posed and candid moments, earning critical acclaim from the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and The Knot and placing images in the pages of Elle and Seattle Bride magazines. Not content to simply point and shoot, the Hartmans light compositions using chiaroscuro or high-exposure natural lighting and often accentuate subjects with extreme angles, forced perspective, or unique natural surroundings. They shoot in vibrant color or black and white, and can edit photos to enhance colors or, by request, replace each subject?s face with Winston Churchill?s. Though the Hartmans use professional tools, they?re glad to help students break into photography via ultra-accessible devices such as the iPhone?following in the footsteps, they note, of Annie Leibovitz, who endorsed the iPhone?s camera on NBC Nightly News in 2011. When not conducting on-location sessions, Brian also leads large-scale workshops in which they pass on their knowledge through graphic slideshows and hands-on training.

After being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and having her thyroid removed, Lea Jacobson needed a jolt of vigor. She found it in a Bikram yoga class. Today, at Bikram Yoga Billings, she and her fellow certified instructors share Bikram yoga's rejuvenating sequence of 26 poses and two breathing exercises with others. Aside from the poses, what differentiates the 90-minute classes from other yoga styles is that they take place in a 105-degree studio. In addition to helping you defrost that evening's dinner, the heat also amplifies the benefits, which include increased flexibility, decreased stress, and boosted strength. If you don't have 90 minutes, which is how long the standard classes take, Jacobson and company schedule express classes that last 50 minutes.
