Patrick Curtet, transportation & lifestyle photographer, takes to the sky for LUFTHANSA and the Aviation Training Center in Phoenix/Arizona

“It’s too easy on the ground, let’s find a new challenge and take to the sky,” says transportation & lifestyle photographer PATRICK CURTET. “When a new client comes to hire me and wants to take my style up into the air is when the fun starts. LUFTHANSA wanted to refresh the photo library for its flying school, which has been established in Phoenix (Arizona) for more than 50 years. All Lufthansa pilots operating now for this major airline have flown over the Arizona capital. The photo shoot took place last November, and the temperature was still 44° Celsius at that time of year. After a very precise briefing, the team and I cruised the airspace for hours. I was shooting from a helicopter, and the planes were circulating.”

The Airline Training Center Arizona, Inc. (ATCA) is an apprenticing company of Lufthansa Flight Training GmbH which offers aviation training to aspiring pilots at the airport in Goodyear, a suburb of Phoenix, USA. The large number of sunny days enables visual flight training (VFR training) nearly all year round.

Patrick Curtet stages the CADILLAC XT4 on commission for Rokkan Advertising – embracing the claim 'Your Road. Your Style. Experience the Cadillac XT4 for Yourself.'

Photographer and Director PATRICK CURTET presents his new work for CADILLAC and the agency Rokkan here on GoSee with a modern visual language and color palette : “Iconic American brand Cadillac continues to reinvent itself. With the tagline 'Your Road. Your Style. Experience the Cadillac XT4 for Yourself.', the carmaker wants to attract a larger target group. Capturing the essence of Cadillac in this really small athletic package was the brief. I was in charge of creating a fresh and modern look for the promotion of the vehicle.”

It was an ordinary day... MP CURTET presents its personal transportation project 'Escape' in photo and film, for you here on GoSee

"When you think about California, you think road trip. Long hours of driving when time slows down a bit, and moments with friends are memorable." PATRICK CURTET tells GoSee. And indeed, the United States, with its neverending roads, seems made for experiences like this. Which is why, Patrick Curtet and several of his friends were more than happy to hop into the car for the personal photo and film project, 'Escape'. The message of the film for Patrick: "We wanted to catch some photos and a video of pure joy, of pure freedom. Release the pressure and forget about your day-to-day life, go out and explore."
