Into the wild - transportation photographer PATRICK CURTET and his team spend two weeks in the wilderness of northern California for GMC and Leo Burnett

“What a dream project when you’re asked to work with those beasts in their natural environment.” says PATRICK CURTET. The agency Leo Burnett commissioned transportation specialist Patrick Curtet with a whole range of advertising motifs to depict the GMC flagship models, including the SIERRA, the AT 4 as well as the DENALI.The motifs were photographed in northern California where the entire team spent two whole weeks in the wilderness: “Early mornings, rain and snow were on the menu every day... but the result is really strong and spreads the power and beauty of nature and the machines.” Creative Director was Simon Fairweather, with post production by Curve Digital and production by MJ68.

'It was an ordinary day...' - ESCAPE / THE FILM, Special Edition by Director PATRICK CURTET exclusively for you 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 never-ending 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.”

MAZDA MOTORSPORTS is expanding its program and presents you a TCR race car based on the Mazda3 here on GoSee. The touring car developed by the US racing division is making its official debut at the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge in 2020. We have transportation specialist PATRICK CURTET to thank for these photos.

MAZDA MOTORSPORTS is expanding its motorsports program as the new Mazda3 TCR race car was recently unveiled by officials in Irvine, California. The Mazda3 TCR will make its racing debut in the 2020 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, beginning with the four-hour Endurance Challenge that is part of the Rolex 24 At Daytona weekend of racing on 26 January, 2020.

PATRICK CURTET tells GoSee : “I was commissioned to create a full range of images of this beast. The challenge was to express the racing spirit of the Mazda3 using only static shots. A very precise lighting plan was set up to showcase the body frame. The hard work put in by my team and I really paid off as the images have already received a warm welcome.” GoSee : michelinpilotchallenge.imsa.com
