Noted photographer, Tom Murray had no idea that when he went to assist a photographer on a job, that he would be working with one of the most iconic musical groups - THE BEATLES! In 'Tom Murray's Mad Day Out With The Beatles' by Paul Skellet & Simon Weitzman, the book tells the true story of Tom's day with the Beatles. We took a moment to find out more about his experience, THE BEATLES and what he's up to now.

It was an amazing day, I had one camera, two rolls of film, and was with the Beatles, the most famous 4 lads in the world. We travelled all over London taking photographs, no one recognized us for some time, so we could stay for 30 to 40 minutes per location. There were no mobile phones etc! AM: You weren't aware that you would be shooting them - when you realized it, did you know that it would be such a historical point in music/pop culture history?

ATHLEISURE MAG: How did you know you wanted to become a photographer?

TM: I had no idea that my photographs would eventually become world famous, or raise so much money for charity worldwide.

TOM MURRAY: I decided to become a photographer as I could not paint people, loved painting, my art looked a bit like Lowry’s painting, stick animal and stick people. I was motor racing at the time, but did not have the money to continue, I was just not fast enough.

AM: What were the Beatles like and are there any stories that you can share from that shoot?

I loved photography and thought it a quick and easy way to make a living, not realizing I could end up famous.

TM: The lads were like me, shaggy hair, fun to be with, they bounced ideas off each other all the time, when I got back to my mother’s to leave the car, she said what was it like, I said: “It was a Mad Day Out,” hence the title of the shoot and the name of my book, Tom Murray’s Mad Day Out.

AM: Tell us how shooting with The Beatles came about and what that was like? TM: I was working at the Sunday Times Studio, for the Sunday Times Magazine, a job Lord Snowdon recommended me for. I was asked to help one of the contract photographers, who was going to photograph a pop group, if I could drive him around, as it was a Sunday, I picked up my Red XK 150 Jaguar from my parents’ home in the Suffolk countryside and drove into London, when leaving the Sunday Times studio, he said bring your camera you might get some nice snaps.

AM: How did shooting with them affect your career going forward? TM: Shooting with the Beatles had no effect on my career, as when the film proceeded, all the images were put in a drawer for many years, no one ever saw them for almost 25 years. Being the youngest photographer to photograph the royal Family the next year had immediate effect on my career, it was a big deal for a commoner to take such great photos.

We arrived at a rehearsal room, an old church type building, on entry I heard someone playing lady Madonna on the piano, opened the door, I said OH SHIT, it was Paul McCartney on the piano, Ringo & George drinking tea, John & Yoko chatting away, I said: “Is this the group,” yes it was the Beatles. 2016.Nov

AM: Did you ever work with them again and did you have a friendship with the band or individual members? TM: I have never worked with them ever again, Paul has my images in his personal - 15 -

collection, as does Ringo, they have both signed my work for charity, I am at £1.3 million on my own and almost £12 million worldwide, the images are in the Museum of London, Radio & TV Museum of Los Angeles, as well as private collections. AM: What is the goal in releasing this book and what do you hope happens when fans and enthusiasts read it? TM: The Museum quality chromogenic archival prints are for collectors, they are limited edition, so slightly pricey, many Beatles fans wanted the book, and with the backstory from the 60’s, the book is meant for Beatles fans, so that they can experience the sixties, see in what context the Beatles, became such a large part of our lives. Even today, when fans meet me, they are from 9 to 90, probably the best fans in the world. AM: As an acclaimed photographer, what other projects have you worked on that you would like to share? TM: I now continue to contribute to charity, I hold photographic talks on how to take great photos, I am a Town Councilor for the Magna Carta Town of Bury St Edmunds, trying to make myself useful, I am working on a new book, my life in pictures, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, which will I hope be followed by my life story with a few pictures. The next big project will be July 28th 2018, it is the 50th anniversary of the now famous photo shoot, so who knows what we will have in store for fans of the best group in the world, The BEATLES.

In an industry that is ever changing, fashion (in general) has its standards steeped in norms when it comes to age, race, height, and trends. These ideas create a sense of notions that surround likely candidates to whom will be successful; however, like anything some rules simply don't apply. When the fashion community is abuzz around personalities, it's worth noting that Iris Apfel, interior designer, business woman and yes fashion designer - has been doing things the way she has wanted to for well over 90 years! In a discussion with us on what rules she had to get to where she is, she exclaimed, "I don't have any rules, because I would only be breaking them, so it's a waste of time." Whether you see her on HSN with her coveted line - Rara Avis, gracing museums at her own retrospectives, taking over Paris during Fashion Week via Iris Takes Paris, designing a wearable tech line with Wisewear, giving talks to those who are inspired by her words or posing for a number of brands as a collaborator and/or face of the brand - she is doing things her way.

Carl Apfel in 1948, two years later, they launched textile house Old World Weavers, which allowed them to travel the world and she continued to infuse her sense of style by buying non-Western pieces and artisanal clothing. "My husband used to say that I looked at a piece of fabric and would listen to the threads. It tells me a story. I have to get a physical reaction when I buy something - a bolt of lightning. It’s fun to get knocked out that way!" With such inspiration at her disposal, one can only wonder how many times she was struck when she also had the opportunity to work at the White House on an array of restoration products for nine presidents (Harry S. Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton).


Although she creates a frenzy when she is out and about, she is very candid about herself. "I don't like pretty. I never felt pretty. I don't feel it now - I'm not a pretty person, but I don't feel badly. It worked out well, because I found that all the girls I know who got by on their looks, as time went on and they faded, they were nothing. And they were very disappointed. When you're somebody like myself, in order to get around and be attractive, you have to develop something, you have to learn something, you have to do something. So you become a bit more interesting."


This ethos personifies the way that Iris found herself in the most interesting circles. Her eclectic interests led her to work at Women's Wear Daily, as an assistant to interior designer Elinor Johnson, and 2016.Nov

With such a strong background and sense of self, it's the amount of projects that she has embraced that continues to open her up to audiences that may not have been privvy to the indelible mark that she has left in fashion and pop culture.

Her love of style (as this is something that one should aim for as it embodies your personality) can be seen in the way she shared an anecdote with us about her mother. "My mother worshipped at the alter of accessories and I got the bug. She always said, if you have a good, little, simple black dress and you have different accessories, you can have 27 different outfits."

"I see myself as the world's oldest living teenager... I try to get as much kick out of things as possible," which can be seen with a number of her collaborations that she has done in partnerships with brands such as Macy's INC line which brings her style to this on trend brand. Pieces included her play of fabrication, mixing textures and of course - you can't talk about Iris and style without including her accessories, "I get more compliments on accessories than anything else. I think they're kind of like herbs and spices. They give zest and zing to an outfit." 2016.Nov

I get more compliments on accessories ... I think they're kind of like herbs and spices. They give zest and zing to an outfit. At 95, there are clearly no signs of stopping for this lady of style. In addition to - 22 -

seeng her pop up in campaigns for Alexis Bittar and Kate Spade, - she is honored in a multitude of ways. Last year, her documentary, Iris included her late husband Carl and brought her to the big screen. This year she was honored with the Women Together Special Award of the Year at the 12th Annual Women Together Gala at the United Nations, alongside Rosario Dawson, The Punta Cana Foundation and the Loewe Foundation. 2016.Nov

Iris' style will also have a permanent home in The Museum of Lifestyle and Fashion History in Boynton Beach, Florida as designs are currently underway for a dedicated gallery that will house her clothing, accessories, and furnishings. With so many projects in the works, who knows what's next for this 95 year old cover girl? - 23 -

This month, extreme freestyle skier Kevin Rolland (and G.H. Mumm Champagne) debuted his brand new short film, Fast Forward: The Eclipse which is filled with ski tricks and stunts down the mountain and through a series of obstacles during the day and at night. 27-year old Rolland has won 7 medals for SKI SuperPipe during his ten X Games appearances. He took home an Olympic bronze for the halfpipe in Sochi in 2014, and is the World Champion in Ski Freestyle (2016). We took some time to find out more about "The Flying Frenchman", ATHLEISURE MAG: How did you get into skiing and how did you know that this would be your career? KEVIN ROLLAND: I’ve been skiing since I was born! I grew up in the French Alps – the La Plagne resort was my backyard. I quickly developed a love of jumping on the slopes at a very young age. I was on a club team by the age of 8 and started freestyle skiing at 12, so I’ve always known my path. AM: What are you most proud of in terms of your accomplishments – medaling 9 times at the X Games, your bronze medal at Sochi or your World Champion in ski freestyle? KR: I would have to say my five gold medals at the X Games mean the most to me, as its about winning the ultimate prize in my sport. But the Olympic medal is something much more rare, and it really touches people. The level of recognition you get after winning an Olympic medal is big; it’s not just people who follow the sport, it’s also the 80 year old grandmother on the street who congratulates you, it really reaches a bigger audience around the world. AM: What do you love about freestyle tricks and stunts and how do you come up with them? 2016.Nov

- 45 -

KR: Tricks are what’s so exciting about the sport. You have to always be pushing your boundaries if you want to win. I love the summer season, as that’s when you put what you have come up with in your mind and test it out on giant bags. I’m always working on new and challenging tricks. AM: We enjoyed watching Fast Forward; what can we expect from the sequel Fast Forward: The Eclipse? KR: We have some really cool jumps from day to night and back, and have experimented with a lot of colors – it looks amazing. We also have some celebration scenes with Mumm – we wanted to bring that to life creatively and I think we’ve incorporated the brand in a really unexpected way. AM: How long does it take to film these tricks and stunts and how many takes? KR: This film took a month to shoot (we shot in April) and that was shooting every single day. So much depends on the snow conditions, so you have to adapt. It was a lot to plan, but it was great to shoot this in my home resort of La Plagne, and really show it off. We had a great team and Julian and I are both from La Plagne, so we wanted to go from the highest peak in the Alps to the base of the resort town, the roads – we skied everything!

AM: What does Mumm’s motto of “Dare, Win, Celebrate” mean to you? KR: I think it means that I must always be pushing my limits, try to always do new, pioneering tricks and the rush of adrenaline that leads to a win and celebration. AM: Do you have plans to compete at the next Olympics: KR: Yes, I’m already training with the plan to be in South Korea in 2018 to compete. AM: When you’re not skiing, how do you relax and give time to yourself? KR: When I’m not skiing, I love free diving. I’ve trained in Monaco with the world champion in free diving. I can go 50 meters and hold my breath for 5 minutes. It actually really helps with the mental part of training for my sport – you learn to clear your mind to conquer challenge. AM: Are there any fitness methods that you do outside of skiing? KR: I work with a trainer all year long. When I’m not on skis (which is all day long), I work out twice a day with different forms of cardio and weights. When I am on skis, I have one day off every 4-5 days.

AM: How did your partnership come about with G.H. Mumm and how are they involved in this film that has debuted? KR: Maison Mumm approached me last year, and the partnership came together with ease. I like to work with brands that feel elevated, but also innovative. Freestyle skiing is what I do, but making films allows me to have a creative side. Working with Mumm has been cool because we have been able to work together on this film in a way that feels natural. 2016.Nov

We've had the pleasure of enjoying Rogue Ales & Spirits as they have a number of interesting ingredients that they bring together for the perfect pint. This fall, they released the anticipated Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale, brewed with fresh pumpkins grown and harvested at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon.

A few years ago, our Style Director stumbled upon, Hitachino Nest, because of the owl logo while shopping at Whole Foods. With a number of blends such as Red Rice Ale, White Ale, Espresso Stout and more - it's a beer worth knowing and including within your mix.

Pumpkin Patch Ale can only be brewed when Mother Nature deems Rogue Farms Dream Pumpkins ripe. One acre of Dream Pumpkins was planted in late spring alongside the Rogue Farms hops, jalapeños, marionberries and buzzing honey bees. This means the small orange gourds are deep orange in color and their sweetness has peaked from the warm Oregon summer. As soon as they were picked, the pumpkins were driven to the Rogue Brewery in Newport, Oregon just 77 miles away. The pumpkins were hand-chopped and seeded, roasted in pizza ovens, and pitched fresh into the brew kettle along with vanilla bean, ginger, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel and Rogue Farms Independent hops to create Pumpkin Patch Ale. “It takes time to plant, grow, harvest, roast and brew with our own pumpkins, but real pumpkin beer is worth the wait,” said Rogue Brewmaster John Maier. Pumpkin Patch Ale is now available nationwide in 750 Ml bottles and on draft. About Rogue Farms: Rogue Ales & Spirits is an agri-fermenter founded in Oregon in 1988, as one of America's first microbreweries. Rogue has won more than 1,700 awards for taste, quality and packaging and is available in all 50 states as well as 54 countries. Since 2008, Rogue has remained committed to saving the terroir of Oregon hops, barley, rye, wheat, honey, jalapenos, pumpkins and marionberries one acre at a time by growing their own.

This Japanese brewery is so focused on their craft and inspired commitment to flavorful ingredients, you will not find a lot of marketing around this brand but those who know know that "Nest is Best". About Hitachino Nest: Hitachino Nest Beer is brewed by KIUCHI BREWERY which has been brewing Japanese Sake since 1823, and now the family is in its 8th generation. Sakaide ("Spring-out sake") is the place close to the facility which is believed to be the place where sake sprand out of the well. Hitachino is the name of the province in ancient Japan which covers the area of their brewery and was famous for its fertile soil, making the land perfect for brewing. Although the malts and hops (in 2014, they began growing their own hops at the brewery site which is a new challenge for better sustainability) are imported from the West, Hitachino Nest is not simply imitating the Western way of brewing, it is still a Japanese beer. The combinations of mixing the malts and hops are infinite. As these are natural plants, flavors and aromas of these ingredients change slightly depending on the crop season. The subtle differences are detected by those who are involved in the process and not the machines. The brewery focuses on matching and balancing the character of each ingredient to create a refined synergy to create the perfect brew. The "Nest is Best" is distributed to over 30 countries, including the US, Great Britain, Thailand and Australia.

500 years ago, explorers came to Patagonia to take in the vast, exotic, wild and infinite beauty. The wilderness has not really changed since then and has an unspoiled bounty of mountains, fjords, glaciers, forests and steppes. Patagonia still boasts the rich and lively history of ranching from its gauchos which tourists and enthusiasts can participate. It is also known for trekking to take in the rich landscape year around. By heading into the Southern Ice Fields, you come face to face with lakes, waterfalls, glaciers, etc. Head over to the ancient frozen ice formations hidden in the Torres del Paine and San Rafael Lagoonn National Parks. It's worth toasting your trip with whiskey on the rocks with ice from Yelcho Ice Field in the Carretera Austral. Fitness and history collide for those that navigate the sea fjords and channels to cross the famous Straits of Magellan before setting sail for Antartica. This historic journey is one that won't easily be forgotten. Whatever peaks your interest, you'll meet a number of new friends from furry ones to connecting with nature in the midst of your travels from hiking, camping, and navigating waterways. Find out more about Chile and what amazing and unforgettable experiences there are to have on your next travels by visiting Travel Chile.

3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add half the scallops and cook for 1-2 minutes each side or until golden and just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining scallops. 4. Rub 1 side of the toast with the cut side of garlic. Divide, garlic side up, among serving plates. Top with peas, scallops, pancetta and rocket. Drizzle glaze around the stacks to serve. FOCACCIA STUFFING WITH SAUSAGE AND CHESTNUTS Ingredients: 3 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil 1 yellow onion, diced 3 celery stalks, diced 1/2 tsp. kosher salt Freshly ground pepper, to taste 1 cup peeled and roasted chestnuts, halved 1 1/2 lb. Italian sausage, casings removed 1 package (1 lb.) La Brea Bakery focaccia stuffing 3 to 4 cups turkey or chicken stock, warmed Directions: Preheat an oven to 375°F. In a large fry pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion, celery, salt and pepper and sautÊ until soft and translucent, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in the chestnuts. Transfer the onion mixture to a very large bowl. In the same pan over medium heat, cook the sausage, crumbling it with a wooden spoon, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the onion mixture and add the focaccia stuffing. Stir in the stock 1/2 cup at a time, making sure it is completely absorbed into the croutons and doesn't pool in the bottom of the bowl. Taste a crouton; it should be moist throughout but not crunchy or mushy. You may not need all of the stock.

To bake the stuffing alongside the turkey, transfer the stuffing to a buttered 3-quart baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking until the top is golden brown and crisp, 25 to 35 minutes more. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. To bake the stuffing inside the turkey, let the stuffing cool to room temperature, then spoon it loosely into the body and neck cavities of the turkey immediately before roasting. Be sure the center of the stuffing reaches 165°F during roasting. Serves 10 to 12.

HAIR TALK with Anthony Pazos


For our readers that are fans of WE TV's, LA Hair, you know Celebrity Hairstylist and TV Personality, Anthony Pazos is one of the stars and team members of the Kim Kimble Salon which boasts a number of celebrities as clients - in addition to the Grand Diva herself, Beyonce. We talk about how he got into the industry, working with the Queen B during her Formation Tour and tips/ trends that we should keep an eye on during this season. ATHLEISURE MAG: When did you know that you wanted to be a hairstylist and what was your journey like? ANTHONY PAZOS: I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist from a very young age. Growing up I was the oldest of 3 and it was my job to help get my sisters ready in the morning and that's where it all came about. AM: We have enjoyed seeing you on L.A. Hair as a member of Kim Kimble's team - how did you join this team and what's it like being one of her rockstars? AP: Being on LA Hair has been fun, for the past 4 seasons we've watched me grow into this brand that I am today. I'm so thankful that Kim & We TV believed in me enough to have me on the show. It's truly an honor to work alongside Kim and it's brought me some really fantastic opportunities - working on Beyoncé’s team for one. AM: What are your hair rules in terms of how you approach it and what you're known for as a hair stylist? AP: I always approach my hairstyles differently depending on the client’s needs. Although my style tends to be more undone, I like everything to be perfect internally but styled messy and effortlessly. * Anthony with Beyonce Formation Tour dancers

AM: We know that you have worked with Beyoncé, as well as her dancers' hair what is that like and how much preparation and time goes into that? AP: It truly is an honor to have been able to work on the Beyoncé team, sometimes it feels so unreal. Beyoncé’s productions are a lot of work and everything has to be perfect. I find it exciting to be able to challenge myself to create extraordinary hairstyles for the world’s biggest entertainer. AM: What are hair trends that were popular in 2016 that you believe will continue into next year and what are new trends that are becoming popular? AP: 2016 was all about LOB's and smoky hues, we will definitely be seeing more of that come 2017. The great thing about 2016 is that it brought unusual colors to the masses, which in turn became fashionable. This really opened the door and allowed the everyday person to become more daring. Suddenly, having grey or pink hair wasn't so unusual. AM: What celebrities have you worked with (besides the Queen herself) that you can share with us? AP: Man I've worked with so many celebs, but some of my most favorite were Khloe Kardashian, One Direction & Ashley Greene. I really enjoyed that these talents let me be creative and allowed me to do my magic without limitations. AM: For our girls on the go, we want to know how we can get that red carpet look when we're without our glam squad. Many readers go to blow out bars so they look great for a night out, but how can we keep that blowout looking amazing longer? For the everyday girl I suggest just trying to have fun with your look. Don't worry about not getting it perfect because practice will make perfect. Also look at

things on social media for inspiration. Take ideas from others and make it your own. Then lastly, the only way to make a blow out last longer, is by not over-saturating with product, and on the last day try curling it to hide oily roots. AM: As a fashion stylist, I always keep certain tools of the trade on me in between clients and have learned from fellow MUAs about items that I should also have on hand. What do we need to have on hand for on-the-go styling which ensures we're always red carpet ready? AP: That's easy :) you should always have hairspray on hand. Hairspray's great because it can act as a style refresher, root boost and even frizz tamer. My personal favorite brand is Orlando Pita's Humidity Blocker finishing spray. AM: Dry, Oily and Frizzy hair has needs, how should we apply hairstyling product for our hair? AP: Depending on which or all you are battling I always recommend by starting from within. A balanced diet and healthy intake of water usually help combat those hair disasters.

AM: With winter coming, how can we protect our hair and give it the love that it needs to stay gorgeous? AP: Regular trims and visits to your hairstylist is always the best bet when combating weather changes. I also recommend listening to what your hair needs, the needs of your hair are always telling as long as you pay attention to it. AM: How can we use clip-ins, wigs and extensions like a stylist and why would one choose one over the other. How can we maintain them?

AP: I have always been a fan of hair additives, such as wigs or extensions. Sometimes these luxuries can be quite expensive but on the other hand they can be a great addition to your everyday look. I always suggest taking care of yourself first. That means do what it takes to be the best you, even if you have to save money to be able to afford these luxuries. In the end you won't regret it and you'll feel elevated. Make sure to catch Anthony, Kim Kimble and the rest of the LA Hair cast on WE TV for a new season in Jan '17.
