WE! shoot it aka Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon present their megacity portfolio spread with the new Mercedes CLS on GoSee

Transportation photographer duo from "WE! shoot it", Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, are on the road worldwide for their clients. Numerous stays in Asian megacities have made a particularly lasting impression on them. Which is why they decided at the end of 2018 to photograph a colorful and loud portfolio in the megacity of Shanghai.

Since it is not possible to close roads in downtown Pudong (Chinese for 'The East Bank' and known for the Shanghai Pudong International Airport) for a shoot, the duo decided to only realize the backdrops there. But they wanted to photograph a real car so they could integrate it perfectly with people elements. From Mercedes-Benz Munich, back in Germany, came the new CLS from the Stuttgart carmaker.

The beautiful ride was photographed at Munich's Sirius Studio with model Francesco Basso in front of the camera. Integration into the backplates was done by means of projections. "And for post production, Sebastian von Grandidier from ALBERT BAUER COMPANIES Munich gave us his best man Michael Fröhle, who developed the look together with us and also gave the spread its final touch!" transportation specialist duo Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon tell us excitedly. GoSee!
