Managing Editor Kelly Kramer; Creative Director Barbara Glynn Denney; Editor/Boss Man Robert Stieve looking over Keith’s shoulder…
We just wrapped up the July issue of Arizona Highways and we’re already hard at work on our August issue.
Yes, we’re in the thick of things, but we thought it would be fun to share a day in our life. Yesterday, the gang crammed into Art Director Keith Whitney’s office to take a look at a layout he’s been working on for the last few days. Everything we do at Arizona Highways is a collaborative effort… and that’s a very good thing, because each month we create a top notch product.
As for how we work together, well, let’s just say comedy writer Robert Orben was absolutely right: “If you can laugh together, you can work together.”
So, I thought I’d share some behind-the-scenes photos of one of the Weekend Adventures & Road Trips featured in this month’s issue of Arizona Highways (on newsstands now). The location was Sonoita — about 45 minutes south of Tucson — and myself, Managing Editor Kelly Kramer, Photo Editor Jeff Kida and Editor Robert Stieve went along for one heckuva ride… a horseback ride with Ron Izzo, owner of Arizona Horseback Experience (the full experience is on page 20 — hint, hint).
FYI, Jeff was behind the camera shooting away…
All I can say is that we had a fabulous time… And as Robert noted in his Editor’s Letter, “the terrain down there is unlike anywhere else in the state, and it’s as beautiful as anywhere else in the world.”
As for that pooch in the slideshow, well, she sure took a liking to our own Jeff Kida… talk about puppy love!
