Photographer Daniel Woods can hold his breath for 3.5 minutes, which comes in handy when he has to grab an underwater shot. An avid outdoorsman whose accomplishments include a 22-mile kayaking excursion to Catalina Island, Daniel found his way to photography through the continual inspiration he drew from wild landscapes, particularly ocean coasts. And then he wondered: why should these landscapes be limited to models and athletes posing for magazines? With that, Daniel launched Beach Shoot to make these wild backdrops accessible to anyone seeking an adventurous photo.

His shoots—which he calls “personal ad campaigns”—venture to locations where beaches, sea cliffs, and trails abound. During these shoots, he paddles along with his subjects to snap portraits and action shots while they're kayaking, standup paddleboarding, or belly-flopping on the exact spot where Venus was born. He posts sample shots to his online portfolio, organized into categories such as adventure kayaking, wildlife encounters, and portraiture. He also uses these dramatic backdrops to frame marriage-proposal shoots.

From mandolins and banjos to ukuleles and handmade boutique guitars, the deep-blue walls of Riffs Acoustic Music always stay well stocked with strings. Inside comfy instruction rooms, the store’s teachers walk students of all skill sets through music theory, the fundamentals of their instruments, and tips for songwriting, performing, and demanding that roadies feed them grapes after each gig. Learning continues in another medium as yoga teachers lead students through outdoor meditative poses and series and on the colder days classes are conducted indoors, often while musicians set the mood with live music.

Specializing in space planning, custom furniture, and kitchen and bath design, Carly Blalock and her staff use their keen designing sense to transform commonplace common rooms into stylish, sleek living spaces that have been featured in such lifestyle magazines as San Diego Home/Garden. The beautifying process begins with a one-hour in-home interior-design consultation, during which clients explain their needs and style preferences to Carly and her design team. Based on the team’s observations, suggestions might include rearranging furniture, possible purchases, or ways to arrange cleaning supplies other than alphabetically. Once a strategy is developed, you'll embark on a one-hour shopping trip to sift through swatches and select home-beautifying goods under the watchful eye of a skilled designer.

A mélange of medical mastery smoothes skin and refines physiques in AdvanceLipo's array of beautifying services. Superfluous fuzz and objectionable outcroppings can be reduced with a series of noninvasive and long-lasting laser hair-removal treatments. A precisely pulsing beam of light pinpoints hair follicles, bathing them in brilliance for a fraction of a second before speedily vaporizing the bothersome bristle and moving on to the next. Most smoothness seekers find that an average of five treatments is enough to get a fairly fuzz-free face, beach-ready bikini line, or scintillating centaur hooves, and sessions can take as little as five minutes per treatment.
