Car Photography – Ferrari FF rough ‘n tough

In a perfect world the Ferrari FF would be the perfect photographers car. My workhorse. It seats four-ish people if it has to and has a quite big boot. It is very fast and gives the people sitting in the front seats a lot of space in its luxurious cockpit. I can tell that you can tell that I am a big fan of the FF. Also from its looks it is the most beautiful modern Ferrari so far. I shot this series of photos on one of the evenings of Photokina last year and I had a quite specific…

Car Photography – Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

The beast, the car that Chris Harris basically called an Aventador killer. an elegant and classic front engine rear wheel drive design and all the fantastic goodies a modern supercar needs. Fabian and I had a a couple of hours to spare, an underground garage and a whole lot of fun. Not much more to say at this time besides enjoy and stay tuned for more F12 and Ferrari goodness.

Mille Miglia 2013. Part three of three. actually of four.

So by now you might have guessed that I had a blast with the Mercedes-Benz Classic team at the Mille Miglia. So lets talk about a few things from a production standpoint. As so often I had planned to shoot photos and video together. I had my gear packed accordingly and also brought my brand new Manfrotto FigRig which I fell in love with! My Monopod plus most of my Nikon gear plus an external 7″ HDMI Monitor for shooting Video. Of course time was a big issue, in a rally like this no one will wait for you, no…

Mille Miglia 2013. Part two of three.

The next day we returned to the Convention Center to get ready to hit the road and it was certainly much busier than before. Strangely enough it felt very german dominated. Not by german car brands, but germans participating. Great to see people from all over the world though preparing their wonderful cars to get this thing started. Call it being unlucky… fate… or whatever but my old friend “bad weather” caught up with us, just as everyone got ready to leave for the Teatro Grande in Brescia. As I mentioned before I wouldn’t really agree with the people saying…

Mille Miglia 2013. Part one of three.

About two month ago I was asked by Mercedes-Benz Classic and the Mercedes-Benz Museum if I was interested in joining the Mille Miglia this year. For those wo don’t know the Mille Miglia, it started as a open road endurance race in 1927. After some time and some fatal crashes and so many drastic changes in the modern time the Mille Miglia change from a race to a rally. A lot people say that it’s “just” a show drive, but from just this experience I can positively say it ain’t entirely so. At least not for the majority or drivers,…
