Air Land Water – Mercedes-Benz x Silver Arrows Marine x Airbus

This was on of the big one. It felt a little bit like an A-Team episode. Not the Film itself, but the production of it. A small team of highly trained media professionals goes out on a high stakes mission. OKOK. I might be getting a bit overexcited here, but I am very proud of what we did here.

Car Photography – Mercedes-Benz CLA

Photos: Me. Text: Fabian Mechtel Mercedes shrinked the CLS. And as more good news they added a some curves, bulges and lots of chrome. As a result the – so called – CLA is even better looking than ist bigger brother. Even if the back is again not particularly good looking.

Not only because of the style, but because of its sportiness. Even if the CLA is based on…
