  • REDred Photo School & Studio
    Founder Neil Buckland grew up with a Canon FTb in his hands, and as an adult, parlayed his affinity for striking images into a lucrative career in advertising design and branding. But something wasn’t right. As time passed, Buckland was spending more and more time finding excuses to ditch work and take some snapshots. Finally in 2008, he gave into his true calling, ditched the workaday world of office life, and founded REDred Photo School & Studio. Today, his accessible workshops and classes help students learn some of the trickier intricacies of modern photography—from understanding what exposure is and how to manipulate it to how to rejigger a DSLR’s auto-modes so that it actually takes decent pictures. Other classes cover more technical concepts such as studio lighting, while still others such as The Art of Photography focus on the aesthetic side. Buckland’s studio is available to rent for personal or commercial photo shoots of any kind, and, for additional fees, the staff can augment such shoots with make-up services, lighting assistance, models for hire, and old-fashioned pterodactyl-powered cameras.

  • Seattle University Athletics
    Since the 1950s, the Seattle University Athletics program has been all over the collegiate athletic landscape, leaving their post as a vaunted member of the NCAA Div. I for the NAIA in the 1970s, where they stayed until the fall of 2002, when they entered the NCAA Div. II. Though the school’s history chronicles periods of turbulence, it also encompasses a laundry list of indelible athletes; basketball Hall of Fame inductee Elgin Baylor led the Redhawks to an NCAA Championship game in 1958, and tennis star Tom Gorman was twice selected as an NCAA All-American, paving the way to a pro career in which he attained a top-10 worldwide ranking. In its relatively brief time in the NCAA Div. II, the Redhawks have won two NCAA titles in men’s swimming and one men’s soccer championship, for which the team was awarded rights to the Seattle Space Needle.

  • Vertical World
    Vertical World rock climbing gym is a unique place for hardcore climbers. The large space was actually the first rock climbing gym to open in the United States, way back in 1987. Today, the artificial rock walls, textured and painted in bright colors, tower at some 50 feet, begging climbers to try to reach the top. Vertical World’s walls show off incuts, uneven surfacing and bulges that closely resemble outdoor rocks, and is designed for climbing using harnesses, ropes and the common system of belaying, though an area for bouldering - climbing shorter heights without using ropes – is available as well. Classes in elite performance training are offered, in addition to yoga classes, weight lifting and climbing fitness classes, as well as rentals of climbing shoes and harnesses.
