After first discovering photography in Manhattan, Xenia Berg globe trots to where the work takes her, currently residing in Germany. Her work and travels occasionally take her back to LA, to collaborate with her friend and active commercial photographer Bryan Alano. Bryan takes time away from clients such as Citibank, Roxy, and Lifestyle Magazine to share insights into lifestyle and wedding photography. Students benefit from Xenia and Bryan's wealth of commercial experience, learning how to navigate lighting instruments, digitally touch-up documents, and reward well-behaved models with caviar-flavored dog biscuits.

Working with one high-school student at a time, The Attendance Improvement Program of the L.A. Unified School District’s licensed social workers seek to dissuade at-risk students from dropping out of school before its too late. Understanding that attendance issues are often an indicator of larger problems, the counselors work directly with students and parents to get to the root of the issues and convince them that attending school every day and earning a diploma pays off in the long run. For further incentives, they also reward students who show attendance improvement with events such as afterschool movies, field trips, and drawings. Through their reward program, the staff also aims to inspire students to pursue careers in science and technology, fields in which the minorities groups that make up the majority of L.A. Unified School District’s students are underrepresented.
