Before he ran his own studio, Andrew Foord exclusively took photos of only two models: his wife and son. They encouraged him to turn his behind-the-lens hobby into a career, and soon Andrew Foord Photography was born. Rather than a simple point-and-shoot approach, Andrew creates artistic portraits of his male and female clients by using dramatic sets, poses, and lighting. During workshops, he teaches those lighting skills to amateur photographers, as well as his favorite techniques for retouching images in Adobe Photoshop.

Group and private music lessons teach students the fundamentals of theory and technique on a range of instruments, and bands can take advantage of mixing gear to polish their sound during rehearsals.

The massage therapists and aestheticians at Royal Serene House shun noxious odors and synthetic compounds for spa products that are natural and organic. The result is most immediately noticed by the nose, as the fragrance of lime leaf, apricot, and mango body scrubs swirl through the air while their sugars slough off dead skin cells. Mud from the Baltic Sea, seaweed from Norway, and Bohemian black organic fango clay keep facials free of chemicals as they draw out toxins and oils.
