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

16.01.2019 • 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...

Photographers • The future is electric! – Matthias Aletsee photographs the BMW iX3 concept car on the one-of-a-kind Ahornboden in the Karwendel Mountains, Tirol

15.01.2019 • With its Concept iX3, BMW presented a design study of the first fully electric Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) at Auto China, 2018. Equipped with BMW's fifth generation eDrive technology and a high-performance battery with more than 70 kWh, this series model of the future offers a driving range today of more than 400 km daily at a charging time of only 30 minutes. With this technology, the BMW Concept iX3 takes e-mobility to a whole new level.

MATTHIAS ALETSEE recently photographed the BMW iX3 concept car on the famous Großer Ahornboden in the Karwendel mountains, Tirol. Since 1972, Großer Ahornboden has been under special protection as a natural monument, prohibiting maple trees from being felled. Still, a great number of the approximately 600-year-old trees are dying, which is why the initiative has been busy replanting them individually. We want to preserve the natural landscape. Located directly on Großer Ahornboden is the Eng Alm mountain pasture – an alpine village with chalets like out of a picture book. Many of these wooden cabins have seen just as many come and go as...

Photographers • Specialty chemicals company LANXESS relies on production, development and research – photographed by Wolfram Schroll

15.01.2019 • The High Performance Materials business unit (HPM) of chemicals company LANXESS commissioned industry photographer WOLFRAM SCHROLL to shoot photos in the areas of production, development and research for the company's own photo pool. Wolfram Schroll on the project: "I've always been fascinated by chemistry and used to build small solid rockets when I was about twelve – thank goodness they didn't fly very far." LANXESS, of course, is about completely different products, for example plastics for the emerging electro-mobility sector.

The challenge during the shoot for LANXESS was finding and developing motifs in the giant complex of production facilities and labs. "After a detailed location check, we photographed for one week at two different sites." says Wolfram Schroll. The LANXESS AG, headquartered in Cologne, is a specialty chemicals company which was founded in 2004 after outsourcing the chemicals division and parts of the polymers division at Bayer AG. The company reached a stock market value of approximately 7.5 billion US dollars in mid 2018. We have Wolfram Schroll's...

Photographers • 'Walls' – Holger Wild photographs the new PORSCHE 911 for the agency Kemper Kommunikation in California, Spain and Amsterdam

14.01.2019 • In this gargantuan project, photographer HOLGER WILD had the honor of photographing the prototype of all sports cars, the PORSCHE 911 – for which, it goes without saying, no compromises were made for its latest model. It doesn't stop there though: the XXL photo production moved from Los Angeles to San Diego before it subsequently took a roundtrip of Spain in the next stage.

This traveling circus road trip started in northern Gijon, stopped over in and around Madrid before wrapping up the project in Barcelona. Well, almost. The last location took it all the way back to Amsterdam. After all, the underlying theme of the campaign is 'Walls' – so it took an enormous number of kilometers to get to the best locations.

The last step of the ride: Zerone put on the final touches with CGI and 2D by masters of the mouse Kai Schubert, Tom Cordes and Max Seilkopf. Production was under the executive of WIDE Production, and CD from agency Kemper Kommunikation was Patrick Falter.

Photographers • New EMEIS DEUBEL entries: Boerge Sierigk & Pascal Schonlau; we have a first selection of portfolios for you on GoSee

11.01.2019 • Emeis Deubel is thrilled to announce it is now working with two new talented young photographers: That a sense of a vibrant inner life animates Boerge Sierigk's supple images is no accident – the German photographer is fascinated by his subjects' emotions. On set, Boerge's ability to connect on a deep level with the people he is shooting allows the former painter to capture not just light, shape and form, but a glimpse into the soul.

Pascal Schonlau’s work explores the boundaries of shape and appearance under the influence of digital media. Playing with sleek surfaces – a main characteristic of digital creations – the images appear hyperreal and artificial. Small imperfections and discrepancies within his pictures seem to be proof of a ‘natural’ origin and thereby create ambiguity for the viewer. His sculptural approach and stylistic lighting emphasize the natural enigma of both person and object.
