Danke Frau Klum

Heidi Klum and Team Rankin graciously extended an 11-hour day of shooting last summer to make time for the October issue of American Way. This week, Heidi shared our cover with her Instagram, Twitter and Facebook followers.

Island Time

Daphne Vermeulen, Chicas Photo Productions and this year’s Road Warriors — Becca, David, Ashley, Malcolm and Tim — enthusiastically rose to the challenge of an ambitious photoshoot. It was a fantastic collaboration.

Fright Night

Three Halloween revelers come upon a scary Victorian mansion, cautiously approach the front door and find themselves in the midst of a fancy masquerade ball. Their horrifying predicament is ultimately mundane and relatable — they're underdressed at a chic party.

I defined the narrative and aviator character and asked Red Nose Studio to develop additional characters and bring it all to life. I’m thrilled with the results.


American Way’s November 15, 2012, cover looks a little something like this.

For the second time in two years, the small, mighty staff of American Way scored a Maggie Award for Best Travel & In-Transit publication from the Western Publishing Association.

Simply Grand

Team Robert Dahey delivered a tour de force performance at this year’s Road Warrior photoshoot, and this year’s Road Warriors — Flory, Ruban, Gillian, Jerry and Nish — responded in kind. My “Warriors on the Move” concept was taken in stride by all.
