L

add Forde is humble when it comes to discussing his work, but his portfolio and work history – which

includes everything from action shots to architectural photography to editorial fashion spreads – speaks for itself. The Denver-based photographer grew up in Aspen and began experimenting with photography by taking photos of his friends  out skateboarding. But it wasn’t until college, when architectural and interior photographer David Patterson took Forde under his wing, that he began to consider that photography could be what he did for a living. After his first class with Patterson, Forde quickly realized that he had a love (and talent) for photography, and he pursued the career by designing his major at school and filling his days with digital media classes. Since graduating, Forde has steadily been growing his portfolio, focusing on editorial, fashion and lifestyle photography. Through assisting for Patterson, Forde says he developed a love for studying light and for perfecting the lighting in his photographs. “Learning lighting through him helped me out because architectural photography and interiors are such a tedious [endeavor],” Forde says. “All the lighting is perfect, all the time. I don’t think I would have studied light as much if I didn’t start out with David.” For Forde, photography isn’t just a means to an end. He’s passionate about his work, and he has traveled to places like Nepal and Uganda to  explore and understand different cultures. “I was trying to get a good overall detail of what their culture is like,” Forde explains. “And to do my best to be honest with it all. I feel like you see a lot of pain in the media, but it’s not all like that. There’s happiness, too. And I think I got a good mixture.”

While in Uganda, with Aspen-based Action in Africa, Forde took over 5,000 photos in four weeks while teaching local kids how to take photographs with Instax cameras. “It was a lot of selfies; we actually had to tell them to stop taking selfies,” Forde says. “It was a little bit of a struggle to get them to photograph what was around them. They were so interested in having photos of themselves and their friends and family, which was cool because they didn’t have that before.” One day during Forde’s travels to Nepal, Forde found himself atop a mountain at sunrise, photographing the forbidden mountain Machapuchare, which stands at nearly 23,000 feet, the peaks scraping the clouds. After he finished shooting the scenery, Forde paraglided down the mountainside with a friend. His photography in Denver is different than what he captures during his trips abroad, but Forde says that the photography he has been able to do here is some of what he enjoys the most. As an editorial photographer, he explains that, “It’s all in my hands. To me, what I love about the job so much, is being able to work with a team of people to develop a concept, a story and then being able to light and shoot it the way I want to, to achieve that concept, is, to me, the most fun thing in the world.” View Ladd Forde's work at, LaddFordePhotography.com.

“Most people had an exit city,” says Armitage about New York City. “In Denver, we thought it was really about to explode with this DIY scene. Denver is in the perfect place to be like the next Portland.” “And so far we’ve been right,” adds McMillan. Armitage and McMillan were heavily influenced by their younger years skateboarding and being in the music scene, and have used those inspirations as the basis of their clothing store. “When people grow out of the [skateboarding] scene a little bit, they are still attracted to the clothing without being some super fashion guy and can still be interested in a small brand making classic clothing,” says Armitage. Roughly 70 percent of the clothing sold in Armitage and McMillan is USA-based. They feature brands such

Warm Welcome

Hot Spot


TAVERNETTA

A

chill fills your bones this time of year as you walk through Union Station- cold concrete and granite surround you,

busy travelers push past in every direction—even the outbound light rail seems to have a sense of melancholy. Thankfully, Denver’s most anticipated new restaurant Tavernetta waits for you, tucked among the hustle and imposing glass buildings. Peek into the windows—you can glimpse a cozy fire burning in the hearth, friends chatting as they sink deep into stylish armchairs. Inside, let the chill melt away in the warmth and casual sophistication that is Tavernetta.   Pale wood and quiet, rustic touches fill the restaurant. An elegant open kitchen allows you to see the staff at work. Pasta being made by hand, prosciutto on the slicer, the insanely delicious house focaccia being readied for tables. Settle in and choose a drink from the extensive wine list (This restaurant is

from the same team that brought us Boulder’s Frasca Food and Wine, after all!) or try one of their many playful cocktails. I recommend The Fire in the Wall, a smoky mixture that includes mezcal and fig puree. The cocktail is a lighthearted nod to the kitchen fire Tavernetta suffered in September, mere days after their grand opening. After tirelessly working to get the restaurant back up and running, Tavernetta is back and better than ever, to the joy of foodies everywhere. Because the food- oh, the food. Start with an appetizer like the Insalata di Stagione, a flavorful salad of farro, pomegranate, apple and celery root. The apples are finely shredded and give a delightfully sweet crunch to the more nutty, herbal flavors of the farro. Next, move on to heartier fare like the Tagliatelle with Maine lobster. This creamy pasta has a touch of heat that will warm you up on even the coldest of winter days. And with your appetite piqued, order the Manzo, a beautifully grilled beef with a sweet and tangy salsa rossa, or the Branzino, a crispy white fish paired with greens and summery citrus—authentic Italian at its finest.  At this point, don’t fight the food coma, finish with one of the restaurant’s sweeter offerings, like the Panna Cotta. Silky smooth with vanilla, strawberries and mint, it’s the perfect way to end your meal. Just be warned—you may never want to venture out from Tavernetta’s warm hospitality back into the cold again.  TAVERNETTA

Enter the alternative - flying charter. Yes, reality TV shows and music videos have done a fantastic job of painting private air travel as simply a Veuve Champagne commercial at 45,000 feet. For anyone that has, or currently utilizes charter flights, the benefits are far more appreciated. Our family of six recently had to be in Telluride for a wedding. We were faced with three travel choices: Option one was pull the kids out of school on Friday and make the seven hour haul by car.

LAMBORGHINI DENVER Authorized Dealer The Huracán Performante has reworked the concept of super sports cars and taken the notion of performance to levels never seen before. The vehicle has been re-engineered in its entirety, as regards its weight, engine power, chassis and above all by introducing an innovative system of active aerodynamics: ALA. The combination of these modifications and the skilled work of the team at Lamborghini, took the Huracán Performante to complete a lap at Nürburgring in 00:06:52:01 setting a new record for best lap and becoming the fastest standard production car at the Shrine of Speed.
