No Comments’s Tony Hsieh for American Airlines

I have photographed Tony Hsieh, the 30-something mastermind CEO of, quite a few times over the years working in Vegas. Still, being hired to visit the offices for a client makes me cheer. Tony and company are just so. much. FUN! These are definitely the cool kids.

This round American Airlines’ in-flight magazine, American Way, asked me to make portraits of Tony and shoot environmentals of the headquarter offices for a feature story for their August issue. My pleasure!

The story is a great read and fascinating tale of how doing things your own way and putting people over profits can work.  If you are ever in Las Vegas, Zappos does tours! You should go check-out this company and experience the unique culture of the place. Visiting always makes me reflect on how the majority of American businesses operate. And if you’re flying American Airlines or American Eagle this month, send me a cell phone snap of my pictures in the magazine via Twitter (@tiffanybrown) and I’ll send you a surprise!

Here’s the magazine spread and a few outtakes of Tony portraits.

Promo Campaign featured on No Plastic Sleeves

After a fantastic 10 day vacation (belated honeymoon with Kirk!) I returned to work this morning to an email from Danielle Currier of No Plastic Sleeves indicating she just posted a feature on my 2011 self-promotion campaign on the NPS website.

I really appreciate Danielle’s comments. I did a great deal of research on marketing and self-promotion before beginning the creative design process for this current campaign, however, it’s really all an experiment to see how what we created sticks once it starts sending. Feedback like Danielle’s and response and work from new clients are the greatest pay-off.

Thanks again, Danielle!
