The US pick-up RAM 1500 – staged in an urban environment by WE! SHOOT IT for importer AEC Europe

For the Dodge and RAM Europe importer AEC-Europe, Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon photographed the new RAM 1500 during lockdown. The client’s brief was to stage the big truck in a classic urban environment. The challenge was thus to give the photos an international look & feel as much as possible despite travel restrictions. In Michael’s home town of Munich, the two photographers finally found plenty of perfect locations. The duo took care of post production themselves once again for this project to put on the final touches and give the photos a consistent look. The result is a photo spread which could not have turned out any better if it were shot in Chicago.

WE! SHOOT IT, Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, present their new website and an emotional people spread with the VW T-Roc on GoSee

The two transportation specialists from WE! shoot it, Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, present their new portfolio on With personal spreads and jobs for well-known manufacturers, they are now giving the portfolio a whole new look! The duo has used the time during lockdown intensively to reposition themselves with their look and to concentrate on what truly makes their work special! “We too hardly recognize our website, but see ourselves all the more in our work!” The duo tells GoSee.

Which is why they can now present two very different spreads from their newest portfolio here on GoSee. As personal work, the duo photographed the two models Greta Myr (Luisa Models) and Natalie Paulin (Showcast) in Frankfurt together with the VW T-Roc. “It was intentional that the car was kept more in the background while we focused on capturing genuine emotions.” the two transportation specialists tell us. In charge of styling was Cornelia Heuser, and post was taken care of by the duo personally. Their special thanks go to Christian Zwiener for his active support!

WE! SHOOT IT : Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon stage the AEC Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat XR together with Maritim Film in stills and motion – we have the result here on GoSee

888PS V8 Power! This makes the AEC Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat XR nothing less than bad ass. In the studio, the creative duo from WE! Shoot It still managed to tame this one hell of a cat in a dynamic production, for which the duo were not only in charge of concept and photography, they also directed the approximately 30-second trailer.

The model in front of their lens next to the limited edition muscle car from Dodge importer AEC Europe was Moritz Taylor c/o Instyle Models. With an area of 700 square meters, the studio of FGV-Schmidle in Munich was the perfect playground for the shoot and also proved to offer limitless options when it comes to equipment and the lighting concept.

Jesse Posch from Posch Photomedia was in charge of post production of the stills and also defined the look of the film together with Michael & Thomas. For the 30 seconds of moving images, the two transportation pros banked on the tried and trusted collaboration with Maritim Film based in Munich. The duo could rely just as much on Producer Tom Forster as on the input they received from DOP Daniel Ritter. Editing and grading came from Jochen Herbst and gave the clip the final touch.

The result are stills and moving images of consistent quality throughout – with an impressively uniform look and in perfect harmony with one another. But see for yourself!
