At the tender age of 6, Mark Cafiero received his first camera. Though it was broken and filled with cartoons his father had drawn of Mark and his sisters, that camera sparked an early interest in photography. Since then, that spark has erupted into a full-fledged passion, leading Mark to become a professional photographer who has snapped photos for hundreds of clients, including celebrities and professional athletes. To share his spark with others, Mark founded Chimpsy, an resource that helps photographers of all experience levels calibrate their skills with casual in-person and online classes.
Available in more than 30 cities across the nation, Chimpsy's two-hour crash course features a hands-on shooting session and campfire-style presentation on topics ranging from camera anatomy to photo composition. For home study, online classes help photographers—beginners and aspiring pros alike—get more from their pictures through two-hour video tutorials that cover photo-editing software, shooting tips and techniques, and steps on how to build a photography business. From the comfort of their bedrooms, students can watch these professional photographer-led tutorials live or replay previously recorded sessions. Along with instructional classes, Chimpsy offers shutterbugs a place to submit photos for contests with monthly prizes or for feedback from peers, pros, and sentient picture frames.
Snap dragon Mark Cafiero is the owner and lead photographer of Cafiero Photographers, the founder and president of Family Tree Photographers, and an avid advocate of outdoor exploration. In addition to penning pieces for Rangefinder magazine and presenting at international photography conferences, Mark's also well versed in natural Colorado adventures. The small class size (25 students maximum) allows for a true hands-on experience. Choose from a variety of lens-friendly locations: downtown Denver, Washington Park, Pearl Street Mall, 300 yards beneath the earth's surface, or nearby sunrise hikes on some of the state's top trails. The classes offer instruction on subjects including framing and composition, portrait shooting, and use of natural light. Students will also learn about the anatomy and function of their cameras in a way that won't embarrass the camera.
At age 19, Kendra Rostvedt set out to sell snowboard gear out of a storage closet. She opened her first bona fide retail shop in 1998, operating under the ethos that boardsports should remain accessible to anybody who wants to try them. Today, the walls of Thrifty Stick Boardshop are lined with longboards, snowboards, and skateboard decks. Skaters can peruse seasonal apparel from more than 50 brands—including Gnu, Volcom, and DC—or bring in equipment to the repair shop, where technicians tune up skis with hot wax and fasten wheels to busted hoverboards so they won't be completely useless.
Family owned for nearly 40 years, Blue Bonnet serves up a hearty menu, heaping with homespun Mexican staples. Appetize your appetite with the Blue Bonnet platter—an ample serving of guacamole and chili con queso accompanied by homemade tortilla chips ($10.50)—before moving on to made-from-scratch specialties such as the Blue Bonnet chimichanga, which eschews the deep fryer in favor of a delicious dressing of green chili, cheese, guacamole, and sour cream ($9.75). Indecisive diners can munch multiple Mexican classics by opting for one of Blue Bonnet’s 26 combination platters, while caramel-covered mini-sopapillas can satisfy sweet teeth after dinner, or be toted home and planted in the hopes of growing larger sopapilas. A gluten-free menu is also available.
