Bearing the titles of Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman from Professional Photographers of America, David and Ally McKay embody the keen vision and aesthetic prowess that separated good photographers from great ones. They share these skills during classes at McKay Photography Academy, where they train eyes, fingers, and imaginations to work in tandem as a snapshooting dream machine. Their classes help aspiring photographers progress from neophytes to seasoned pros; the Beginning Digital Photography course teaches students to harness the intricacies of their instruments, and the Pro Academy offers inside tips on how to successfully snap wedding portraits, pose recent grads, or tease out candid emotions. When not busy instructing the next generation of shutterbugs, David and Ally also devise photo safaris, which send small teams of photographers to capture shots of famed landmarks including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge; the Lincoln Memorial of Washington, DC; or Yosemite's 60-foot statue of Yogi Bear.

Ben Chen has experienced his share of success in his nearly 30-year photography career?his work has been published in such publications as Cosmopolitan, The Los Angeles Times, and ESPN Magazine, and he has lent his expertise to some of the nation's largest corporations, including Procter & Gamble and The American Red Cross. In 2006, the photographer began to notice that more and more novices were purchasing complex DSLR cameras, and that gave him an idea. Chen decided to share his wealth of knowledge with aspiring photographers by creating the 4-Hour Newbie Photography Boot Camp, which teaches students how to shoot manually with their DSLRs and create artistic, professional-quality photos. Since then, more than 5,000 students in 20 cities throughout the country have benefitted from these classes. In 2013, he acquiesced to student demand and created Part II of the class, which goes beyond photography basics by diving into post-production techniques. Nowadays, students can take both Part I and Part II in the same day, helping them go from student to master in less time than most action-movie montages.

What inspired you to start or run this business?

Traveling frequently for work, I realized how unenjoyable much of my travel was and how much productivity I was losing during travel. Starline aims to let passengers take back their travel time, be it for enjoyment or work purposes. While it's great to save on gas, the bigger benefit is regaining your time and peace of mind in not having to worry about travel.

A single Lincoln town car often draws attention, partly for its sleek, black exterior and partly for the smartly dressed driver often sitting behind the wheel. Classics Town Cars Limousine Service’s home garage must magnetize eyes, then, because it contains an entire fleet of the vehicles. The service sends out drivers day or night, seven days a week, to ferry clients to and from important business all over the metropolitan area. Most frequently, drivers take their charges to the airport, but they also regularly visit the Texas Medical Center or take couples out for a night on the town, serving as designated drivers and late-night lullaby singers.
