Muhammad Ali, Barack Obama, Jay Leno, Tony Bennett—renowned shutterbug Kim Jew has aimed his lens at them all. His photographs of celebrities and prominent politicians have landed on the pages of high-profile publications including Harper's Bazaar and GQ over a career that has spanned more than three decades. Today, he helms three studios, where a staff of shutterbugs snaps images in styles ranging from composite and fine art to editorial high fashion. The studios specialize in portraiture, documenting graduating seniors wearing caps and gowns, toddlers wearing cupcake crumbs, and families showing off the matching dimples they got from a great aunt's insistent cheek pinching.

Chronic pain in her neck and lower back brought Melanie St. Georges into her first yoga class. She walked in stressed, tired, and afraid to fail. Despite that fear, she dove into her first class, and as she continued to practice daily, not only did she find herself pain-free, but she felt much more relaxed and balanced.

Today, Melanie leads her own team of dedicated instructors in the hopes of making yoga accessible so that others may discover its healing powers. Utilizing the Barkan Method of hot yoga?a variant of Hatha yoga?their classes aim to strengthen and stretch the entire muscular system while relieving mental stress. Heated air helps the body flush out toxins while deepening stretches and staving off injuries caused by a recent move into Aladdin?s lamp. When they?re not teaching yoga, instructors help clients boost their core strength with Pilates sessions that take place in a moderately heated environment. Blissful Spirits also offers daily donation-based daycare services during select hours.

Lots of kids start their own lawn-mowing business to earn extra cash. For 12-year-old Ryan Fellows, every neighbor's yard he cut put him closer to buying a shotgun so he could go hunting with his cousins, uncles, and grandfather. As the outdoorsy young man continued hunting, he also dabbled in competitive rifle shooting with his high school's JROTC team. Combining his advanced marksmanship skills with his love of martial arts, Ryan went on to earn multiple training certifications—awarded from institutions such as the state, NRA, and Glock—and applied them toward his own training business, as well as his post of director of US operations for SAFE International.

A self-professed "epitome of an entrepreneur," he also works as a professional photographer. His portfolio is loaded with sports-action shots and portraits of celebrities such as Luciano Pavarotti and Jamie Lee Curtis looking as contemplative and approachable as less-famous people.

The Rentals

Students typically use their own guns during live-fire training. In certain cases?such as private lessons?instructors may supply firearms.

At a Glance

Safety. That is the driving force behind everything Sierra3Alpha does. During its gun-safety classes, a certified instructor covers essential concepts, including firearms storage and proper handling. From there, classes dive into more advanced topics, such as what to do if a firearm malfunctions. Beyond these lecture-based lessons, the instructor can lead group and private live-fire classes for rifles, pistols, and shotguns.
