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.
Carter Kustera's hand-painted works of art have been exhibited internationally as a part of U2's PopMart Tour and the national branding for Barneys CO-OP and Jonathan Adler stores. Carter Kustera's requirements ask that customers send an image of the person, pet, or perfectly portioned deli sandwich to undergo artistic apotheosis as a minimalistic outline emblazoned in black, red, light blue, light pink, kelly green, or lavender. Each individualized portrait is ensnared within the permeable pores of hot-press paper with gouache brushstrokes, a more opaque form of watercolor that appears richer and more reflective than other diluted dyes. Customize your silhouetted self-image with your choice of caption to verbally embody your personality or confuse viewers by epitomizing someone else's.
The assiduous staff at Wolf's Cleaners, which has more than 65 years of experience, wields odorless, nonhazardous chemicals to expunge wardrobes tarnished by lingering smudges and stains, leaving clothes pressed and pristine. With an eco-friendly petroleum-based solvent at hand, a destroyer of dirt purges filthy shirts ($2.30), skirts ($6.92), and blouses ($6.92), erasing common at-work accidents such as coffee spills or ink stains caused by a lost quill duel. Wolf's Cleaners can also return dresses ($12.74) and suits ($12.74) to spotless condition in time for special occasions, and rid muddied sport and polo shirts to prep them for the field ($3.31). For those with busy schedules, Wolf’s Cleaners also offers free pickup and drop-off services right to your office.
From outside, Innovative Health & Fitness' sprawling 52,545-square-foot facility looks more like a school or a corporation than a gym. However, once you enter the gleaming, modern building’s doors, there is no mistaking its true purpose: fitness. The mega-center encompasses three pools, two floors lined with strength training and cardio machines, and two group-class studios. Here, the certified fitness instructors lead yoga, Zumba, BodyPump, spinning, and kickboxing classes. They emphasize long-term results over quick fixes, and help guests lead healthier lives with personal-training sessions and nutrition counseling.
To augment workouts, exercisers can stop at the spa for a massage, mani-pedi, or tanning, or harvest the café for its smoothies, healthful snacks, and Popeye's other favorite food: Juice Plus+ vitamins.
Brimming with Matrix fitness equipment, free weights, and muscle-toning cable machines, Nova Gyms inspires guests to build well-rounded workouts that incorporate strength training and cardiovascular conditioning. Friendly staffers welcome exercisers of all levels with gratis equipment orientations, teaching them how to board stair-steppers safely and reason with surly dumbbells. Fitness seekers customize presses and lifts at the functional trainer, which lets them add or subtract weights at their convenience. A half-dozen elliptical machines help members trace low-impact circles with their feet, and three recumbent bikes simulate rickshaw-based limbo contests. Guests can also gallop on treadmills equipped with 15-inch personal TVs to keep their minds occupied while their bodies get sweaty.
Supreme Care Services' staffers travel far and wide to bring detailed, timely, and trained maintenance to their customers' homes. During visits, friendly technicians rid home air ducts and dryer vents of potentially harmful dust and lint buildups that can cause fires if encountered by a sprinting Speedy Gonzales. The staffers also draw on 25 years of painting experience to splash homes with tasteful hues.
