Offering a full spectrum of heating and air-conditioning services and products, Airtek Systems sends a team of HVAC specialists to homes to maintain comfortable climates year-round. They specialize in designing and building systems, installing a range of traditional and energy-saving HVAC units. Green energy alternatives include rooftop heating systems that harness solar energy and geothermal systems that tap into the constant 55- to 70-degree temperature maintained underground by an air-conditioned sun at the core of the earth. The technicians also perform repairs and tune-ups to keep machines working efficiently and annual maintenance programs.
Whether performing preventative-maintenance services on heat pumps, fan coils, or furnaces or upgrading aging air conditioners, Burant Heating & Air Conditioning’s temperature specialists pride themselves on their quality workmanship. With each new installation, techs calculate the furnace size required to heat each client's home, business, or condo-grade tree fort before custom cutting all sheet metal inside their truck. As they work, they lay down carpet runners and don booties to protect floors, and client investments are protected by a two-year parts-and-labor warranty, which summons the techs back to repair any problems free of charge.
Photographer Grace Trudeau was a full-time model before she picked up her first Nikon DSLR. Drawing upon her experience on both sides of the lens, Grace gives clients posing ideas and shows them her images as she shoots so they can see how they look. During each session, she wields two Nikon DSLR cameras and a trio of lenses , whether she’s working under the soft lights of her home studio or on-location on a farm, at the beach, or in the woods. At the end of each session, Grace custom-edits images, enhancing colors or injecting textures to add depth. Next, she prints out the resulting images onto canvas prints, statuettes, holiday cards, and accordion books; or transfers them onto iPhone cases, mouse pads, and shirts.
When she’s not shooting and editing, Grace is donating her time to various charities and mentoring beginning photographers. At her studio she teaches them about DSLR camera settings, the basics of shooting, and how not to smear peanut butter on your lenses. She then leads them through a real photo-shoot; and invites them to edit their photos alongside her while she gives advice.
Seasoned shutterbug Jeffrey R. Kepner brings more than 25 years of photography experience to each photo shoot. A background in photojournalism helps him to capture the essence of each moment while snapping high-contrast black-and-white or color shots of families, graduating students, and even pets. Though Bella Classic Photography's studio provides a professional backdrop for photo shoots, Jeff also travels to shoots at parks, jails for trees, and other scenic locations. Digital retouching yields crisp images, which can be printed or shared digitally.
Owner Melissa Yokofich and her all-female staff of experts help unleash clients’ sexual prowess during artistic boudoir photo shoots. In each one-hour, in-studio session, the photographer works to ensure comfort, helping guide patrons through figure-flattering poses while listening to feedback and renditions of favorite musical numbers. Clients pose in three ensembles per session, discussing lingerie-retailer recommendations and styling tips with staffers during a complimentary preappointment phone consultation. After the shoot, clients choose their favorite photo from a set of 20–25 retouched images, and receive a 5"x7" print to present to a loved one or persuade a magic mirror of their fairness dominance.
