Married for nine years and a photography team for five, Brian and Jennifer Hartman bring an artistic touch and approach to their on-location photography. Employing a photojournalistic style and dramatic lighting, they capture solo subjects and groups during posed and candid moments, earning critical acclaim from the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and The Knot and placing images in the pages of Elle and Seattle Bride magazines.

Not content to simply point and shoot, the Hartmans light compositions using chiaroscuro or high-exposure natural lighting and often accentuate subjects with extreme angles, forced perspective, or unique natural surroundings. They shoot in vibrant color or black and white, and can edit photos to enhance colors or, by request, replace each subject’s face with Winston Churchill’s. Though the Hartmans use professional tools, they’re glad to help students break into photography via ultra-accessible devices such as the iPhone—following in the footsteps, they note, of Annie Leibovitz, who endorsed the iPhone’s camera on NBC Nightly News in 2011. When not conducting on-location sessions, Brian also leads large-scale workshops in which they pass on their knowledge through graphic slideshows and hands-on training.

The jazz standard ?Flying Home? brought Savoy Swing Club?s founders together in 1993 at a dance camp, after which the group of friends began meeting regularly to keep the choreography fresh in their minds. The troupe?s dedication to the lindy hop and other jazz-era dances gradually blossomed into the club?s current calendar of professionally staffed classes, workshops, and dance events. Classes grouped by skill level progressively transform students with two left feet or three right toes into fleet-footed hoofers, imparting classic moves that help nurture a sense of rhythm and speed. Each week, students of all levels can take part in Savoy Mondays, a decade-long tradition, as DJs and a single trumpeting swan provide background music for dancers to sharpen their moves. And on the first and third Fridays of every month, the basement of the local Bagel Deli becomes the Blues Underground, where a free introductory blues lesson is followed by a late night of dancing.

The Queen of Seattle was built in the early 1980s—about a century after the era after which she's styled. For many years the vessel transported sightseers across the Sacramento River, under the name Elizabeth Louise. She briefly relocated to Alaska before finding her home in Seattle, where she has ferried private, public, and charter passengers across Lake Union and Lake Washington Ship Canal waters. Her tours are known for blending historical narration with on-board cabaret-style entertainment.

The 275-passenger ship is a unique sight on Seattle's waterways, fully evoking the late 1800s with steam-powered rear paddles and a staff that dons period costumes. Below deck, a viewing area unveils the ancient secrets behind the boat's actual 1884 reciprocating steam engines, allowing guests to watch the mighty pistons whistle while they work or take occasional smoke breaks.

When Photo Center NW was originally founded in the early 1980s it was known as the Exposure School of Photography. Since then it has undergone numerous transformations, some of which included becoming a nonprofit organization and an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Now standing as a mecca for students and creators in the Pacific Northwest art community, the center hosts regular exhibitions in addition to a robust curriculum of classes and workshops. Their faculty conducts 53-credit certification programs and 10-week courses within the facility’s four labs devoted to black-and-white and digital photography. The building also houses an immense reference library and plans to add a daylight studio and a playground for the cameras to relax in the very near future.

Each of the guitar coaches at American Guitar Academy are certified in the school’s signature teaching method. Developed over 25 years, this house-honed instruction technique incorporates scientific research to help fingers learn to shred frets up to eight times faster than alternative methods. During private half-hour lessons, instructors guide budding rock stars aged 4 years and up through the basics of strumming chords and seamlessly stitching together riffs. These comprehensive lessons on classical, electric, or acoustic guitars are offered once a week with a live instructor or online and guarantee that students will be playing their favorite music within six months of training. Students may begin lessons without owning a guitar, but are encouraged to gain access to one quickly for mastering scales and the ability to solo with their teeth.

For the past eight years, Community Fitness has been motivated by the vision of people striving toward goals together while having fun enjoying music and movement. Lifelong dancers teach barre classes, pharmacists-cum-personal-trainers guide yoga sessions, and CrossFit–trained mothers of three lead BodyPump workouts.

Community Fitness' approach is balanced across three different studios, each with its own focus and to-the-point name, that combine to offer more than 100 classes per week. The Play studio offers movement and dance classes, the Power studio revolves around strength training, and the Flow studio takes a mind-body approach with gentler exercises such as yoga. Each studio creates a bright space equipped with sprung floors and high-tech light and sound.
