Jeff Ludes photographs a Vintage Toyota on the coast of Oregon

"You can find anything on eBay! I found a vintage 80s Patagonia jacket, perfect for this project with a 1985 Toyota FJ60. Together with a local surfer, we made the drive from Portland to the coast, shooting all along the way. Amazingly, we were greeted with clear skies – very welcome when you're up at sunrise to surf, or to shoot." Oregon is a North American coastal city in the Pacific Northwest, above California, and known for its diverse landscapes with forests, mountains, picturesque farms and beaches. See the result by transportation photographer JEFF LUDES here on GoSee.

Kia 'Spirit Animals' - an unusual social media campaign by Jeff Ludes

Transportation photographer JEFF LUDES and his team spent several days in the mountains of the Californian Sierra Nevada, where they realized an unusual social media campaign for South Korean carmaker KIA. Instead of a hamster, KIA used larger animals this time... "The amazing concept paired each vehicle with a "spirit animal" that best suited its character and abilities. Professional handlers brought in the trained animals, giving Jeff the freedom to get really close and capture some unique images. The best part was seeing the animals enjoy themselves in the snow, something they don't get much of in Southern California."

The launch of the new HONDA PASSPORT, photographed by JEFF LUDES

Japanese carmaker HONDA introduced the completely new Passport at the Auto Show in Los Angeles, which will be launched in the US at the beginning of 2019. The mid-size SUV was photographed by GoSee member JEFF LUDES. "Thinking back to warmer days in 2018, I had the pleasure of shooting images for the first Honda Passport to be made in over 15 years. Things were complicated slightly because the vehicle was strictly secret and could not be shot in public locations. So, to capture its rugged outdoor abilities, I first took a small team to Colorado and Utah, shooting backgrounds on mountainsides, forests, deserts, and the city too. With an excellent library of images complete, everyone gathered with the vehicles in the California desert, shooting carefully to match angles and lighting, not to mention integrating talent. Once in post, all parts came together seamlessly, and the effort paid off with a great collection of images shot in amazing locations."
