ALI MARGO YOSSI MICHAELI For 15 years, Margo, whose work has been published in The New York Times, Outside, and Skiing, has written "The Aspen Princess," her award-winning weekly column in The Aspen Times. In "Aspen Inspired" (page 152), she describes giving her son the Roaring Fork child- hood of her dreams. What have been your latest adventures? After having a baby boy, everything is an adven- ture—everything from riding the Ajax gondola to biking the Rio Grande Trail takes on a whole new meaning. What's changed in the valley since you first arrived? At first, I loved that Aspen was so cosmopoli- tan and that there was so much culture (not to mention a hopping bar scene) in such a small mountain town. Now it's more about raising my son in the mountains. I have a whole new level of appreciation for the quality of life we have in this valley. Israeli-born and New York-based, Michaeli has published his photog- raphy in international editions of Vogue, Elle, GQ, and HarperÕs Bazaar and has collaborated with clients such as H&M, Fila, and Avon. He shot our summer fashion feature (page 96). What is your favorite way to stage a shoot? Generally speaking, I just love to shoot outdoors. The light is changing all the time; it is very dynamic, and I try to use it to my advantage. Which are your go-to cameras? Canon for 35mm, Hasselblad for medium format. I started with both on film, when it was still around, and stuck to them. It's all about equipment you feel comfortable with. What are some challenges with shooting fashion? There needs to be harmony—the lighting, poses, styling, makeup, hair. Exchanging ideas beforehand and working with great professionals usually does the trick! 306 South Mill Street .
