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. But there will be a Shooting Brake version of the CLA, so that will be fixed too. Despite that issue the guys at Mercedes are very excited about their new model. Not only because of the style, but because of its sportiness. Even if the CLA is based on…

Car Photography – Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive

A few weeks ago I was invited to a fantastic and exclusive Mercedes-Benz Event at the Paul Ricard Racetrack in France. It was day of great fun, lots of work and two of my most favorite things in the world, Driving great cars on a racetrack and shooting photos and videos of great cars on a racetrack! I will not go into detail here too much as you can read all about the first car over at Cool Hunting. So make sure to head over there! The fantastic Mr. Fabian Mechtel was kind enough to write for me and help…

#mbrt13 – wherever I may roam

What is it that pulls people like us out on the street and actually lets us enjoy a trip like this?! Why do I love being on the road? Sitting in the car for hours, devouring asphalt like a maniac. To be honest… NO IDEA! The thing I know is that I enjoy it. Listening to music, local news, meet people along the way, be it a travelling antiques dealer or a pissed of hillbilly trucker at a taco bell. Changing scenery, when you pull to the side of the road for photo, coffee or even a snack. I am…

#mbrt13 – the eagle has landed

#mbrt13, a hashtag for an idea that sprung from one mans head and developed into a project for twelve. In a very short period of time the plans for a fantastic road trip were made and what felt like an blink of an eye we had our plane tickets, roadmap and itinerary. An international crew going from Los Angeles (or actually Carlsbad) all the way to Detroit. I know, it doesn’t sound too hardcore, but if you have to make it in a bit less then 5 days it becomes a challenge. With our internal title “Guarding the E-Class” we…

#mbrt13 – rollin rollin rollin

It is our third day and we are on the Interstate 40 towards Amarillo as I am writing this post. I wanted to post way before this post, but we have been quite busy and get less sleep than anticipated, so the time that I am awake after driving the legs of our road trip I mostly use for importing and backing up all the footage. If you want to stay completely up to date you should check my Twitter, Flickr and YouTube channel as I post to those daily and from the road. Our connectivity is not always given,…
