By Noel Casaje. Few places in the US can rival the magnificence of Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park during autumn. Within the park, there is perhaps no other location more popular than Oxbow Bend.

That was an interesting topic on its own, but Keith mentioned that he was carrying a Platypod Max with him for the entire trip that was routed through five states along the Gulf of Mexico and scheduled to take 30 days, covering 1,400 miles. We kept in touch.

Platypod Max Fitness Shoot

By Ian Spanier. When actor, host and documentarian Andre Bolourchi asked me on a recent shoot if I’d be open to doing some fitness shots with him, it was a no-brainer. YES! Rather than the standard assignment shoot for Muscle & Fitness, I decided to approach Andre’s shoot a little differently, or I should say, from a different perspective.
