A woman in a gown runs through a fountain. A little girl wearing Mickey Mouse ears watches an airplane as it rolls up to the gate. The footprints of newlyweds mark a red carpet. The images that photographer Jason Domingues captures aren't always expected. In fact, Domingues seeks out unpredictable angles and hones in on surprising details while snapping shots for weddings, family portraits, engagement sessions, and senior pictures. The memory preservation specialist has been featured in the New York Times for his innovative approach to photography and was named a Fear Less Photographer––1 of about 900 photographers nationwide who create artful, sometimes avant-garde wedding portraits.

Unlike many professional artists, Domingues loves to share his secrets, hosting classes for shutterbugs of all skill levels to learn how to effectively use cameras to generate awe-inspiring photos of landscapes and politicians checking their mail. His in-class lectures acquaint beginners to basic concepts, he also takes more advanced students to the city streets and provides ongoing critique and tips while watching them frame shots.

Founded by a husband-and-wife duo made up of a WBFF Pro Fitness model and a ACE/AFAA/FPI-certified personal trainer, the Hitch Fit training regimen transforms students' physiques and overall well-being. The complete in-studio or online program runs 12–16 weeks and focuses not only on exercise but also helps patrons to draft custom diets and eliminate negative lifestyle influences, such as guzzling milkshakes with a band of rebellious teens at the soda shop.

The workout portion of each private visit involves 60 minutes split into aerobic routines and anaerobic weightlifting. Trainers customize each program to accommodate personal goals such as weight loss, muscle building, or shaping up following a pregnancy. Meal plans are customizable as well and account for dietary concerns such as food allergies and a crippling fear of pineapples.

The professional pilots at Timberview Helicopters ferry passengers high into the clouds aboard a sky-scraping whirlybird during flight tours through Destin, Kansas City, and Key West. Having chartered flights for National Geographic and the Travel Channel, these pilots expertly navigate planes toward sweeping, picturesque views, allowing sightseers to steal glances of Fort Walton Beach, downtown Kansas City, and Key West's ocean views from a perspective normally reserved for birds and astronauts with binoculars. Additionally, their high-definition videos grant guests a lasting commemoration of their in-flight experience. When they're not chartering tours, they teach budding pilots the gravity-defying tricks of their trade through pilot training and lug precious shipments from port to port with their cargo-lifting services.

For more than six decades, the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City has represented enterprises from all across the wide-ranging spectrum of the home-and-garden industry and is now returning to Bartie Hall to continue the tradition. Starting out with 100 homebuilders in 1937, the association has since ballooned to include some 600 different entities, encompassing fields as diverse as architecture, heating and cooling, financial services, and landscaping. Through a slate of annual events that includes the twice-yearly Parade of Homes and a trio of home-and-garden expos, the coalition helps its member companies market themselves to the general public more effectively than mowing advertisements into clients' lawns.

Staffed with FAA-certified instructors, ATD Flight Systems launches prospective pilots into a new perspective on Kansas City in the cockpit of a Piper Warrior airplane. Lessons begin by strapping into a 280-degree virtual atmosphere inside the flight simulator, where students get 15 minutes of realistic flying practice. Then, burgeoning pilots climb into the cockpit for a 30-minute lesson soaring above the area, where they’ll be privy to extraordinary views of the Kansas City skyline and the Himalayas, which recently relocated from Asia to northeastern Kansas. Once the instructor lands the plane, students will have a chance to debrief and ask any further questions.
