Travel Photography – Tokyo (Part 1)

Not sure where to start. This trip was very special in more than one way. Tokyo, as is Hong Kong, has been on my bucket list for a long long time. And when we started looking into where to go for a vacation it was between Tokyo and Hong Kong. We decided on Tokyo in the end because of a couple of reasons. All of them gut decisions of course. As so many other people I got interested in, specifically, Chinese and Japanese culture through movies. From classic Hong Kong films to early Anime films and TV series. My first…

Teymur Visuals x BMW R nineT x Heldth

I don’t know if you know this feeling. Maybe it is something extremely gear head specific, but there is something to be driving alone in a car or on a bike in the middle of the night. No specific destination in mind. Rollin’ as the kids used to say. Since even before I had my license (psssssssst), I enjoyed cruising through the streets and out of the city on country roads to clear my head. No matter if I was depressed because of a girl or being stuck trying to finish a paper or anything in between. Of course it…

Editorial – AMG GT (part one of two)

Long time no see reader! after some major problems with my old hoster and then so weird big problems with the new one I am finally back with all systems running. So for those who also follow me on my Instagram channel it might not come as a surprise, but a few weeks back I had the pleasure of being on a trip WITH Mercedes-Benz for Heldth with the new Mercedes-AMG GT.

Whats in my bag / Every day carry – Brazil (Worldcup start)

It’s only two more hours and I will be on my way to Brazil. I am part of a small production crew shooting the last parts of a documentary that was filmed there earlier this year. I will try and post as much as I can from there, but I am not sure how much time I will have and how the connection will be at hour Hotel etc. So for now the WIMB / EDC post. This time also the “containers” for what I take with me. first up my beloved Goruck GRII, my Tank, the Pelican 1510 trolley and…

Mercedes-Benz Instagram Shootout NYC / LA

MBShootout NYC / LA The Mercedes-Benz Instagram Shootout in New York and Los Angeles was a fantastic experience, it was the longest of all the Shootouts so far and took place in two cities. New York City and Los Angeles. Our New York Team consisted of Mario-Roman Lambrecht, Joseph Linaschke, our local Andrew Link and me. In LA it was Mario, Joseph and me again plus our locals Royce Rumsey, Richard Thompson and Zach Benge. I cannot say it often enough how honored and thankful I am to have worked with this extremely talented and kind group of people. What…

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. Teymur       

Model Photography – Latex Ladies

I have posted a few Teaser shots over the past few weeks and I am happy to show you the final results now. When Tina contacted me about a spontaneous shoot with two of her friends and had some ideas what they wanted and needed I was very happy to get away from all the cars and shoot some human models again for a change. I love shooting both as you know, but it’s the mix that makes it really fun. So we have three wonderful and very different female models. Two nice and also very different Locations and two…

Event Photography – BMW R nineT

Last week I had the pleasure to cover an unveiling event for BMW Motorrad in Munich.  It was the unveiling of the new and stunning R nineT. The location was a blast, from the outside fitting perfectly into the conservative and upperclass Munich city center, the inside a mix of biker- and southern-bar.  Problem with that, well not really a problem, but probably very much out of the comfort zone of a lot of photographers… shooting somewhere between ISO 6400 and ISO 10000. That on a job?! Well, why not. Professional cameras nowadays are built for that, and thats why…

Car Photography – Bentley Continental GT Speed

Who doesn’t love the Continental GT? Well… there are enough people out there, but I have always loved it bulky, bulldog exterior. Though it is more like Batmans Tumbler. Just from the size to performance ratio. just feeling wise. The interior on the other hand was so much nicer in the pre-VW days. So much nicer! Anyways. The driver that brought the car was quite a bit late and we already only had one day to shoot, so we ended up with a few hours only, but I am very happy with the results.

Mercedes-Benz Instagram Shootout – I need you!

The night is over and we had a blast. Always great to be put into these situations that are just different. We produced some fantastic photos and got some fantastic responses. Thanks to those who supported me with their likes already and all the shout outs. In case you missed it or didn’t have time to head over to the Mercedes-Benz Instagram account I have embedded all my photos below. I appreciate it a lot and if you like keep on sharing this post.

A Night on the IAA – Mercedes-Benz Instagram Shootout

Some of you will remember the fantastic night that some assorted car bloggers and I spent in the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart back in August 2012. For those who have I have put together a collection of photos and the video below or just follow the first link.  For this coming sunday night they have come up with a bit different approach! Me and three other photographers will have the whole Mercedes-Benz “booth” on the IAA in Frankfurt to ourselves. Not only that, but we will have a Shootout between the four of us. Between 7pm on sunday and 7am…

Model Photography – Cassidy Rose and Frollein Miez

It was a very spontaneous shoot, only took about two hours and we had a lot of fun. It was Cassidys birthday, the weather was fantastic too and went down to the Rhine as the ladies had some swimwear the wanted to be shot in. I normally am very well prepared, especially equipment wise… well… lets say I ended up with some completely wet pants. Really pleased with the results though and hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. Spontaneous people FTW!!! If you want to see more of Cassidy Rose and Frollein Miez, just follow the links….

Event Photography – Schloss Dyck with Ford Germany

Ford Germany was so kind to invite me to this years Schloss Dyck classic car Event, which some compare directly to Goodwoods Festival of Speed. To put a beautiful red cherry on top, we met at the Ford Classic garage and were allowed to pick a car from the fantastic collection to drive to Schloss Dyck from the Cologne Plant. The weather was fantastic, the roads free and the place full of fantastic cars. And people. And cars… and even more people. And more cars. As nice as it is to be there and see all those cars and enjoy…

Model Photography – Filiz

It has been quite some time that I worked with a model and I felt quite bad about that. I always enjoy working with people and when you dedicate some time and work with a model on a shoot it can be a very rewarding thing. And for me it’s the perfect counterpart to all my car and event work. So to get back into it I just ask Filiz who I got to know quite recently and we just went out with a few basic outfits, no MUA and my buddy Thorsten to help out. the First set was…

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

This time it was Toronto and we had the pleasure of driving the new S-Class. Our HQ was a beautiful Hotel in the middle of Toronto, an absolutely fabulous location and hotel to get to know the city a little bit and roam the streets for locations to shoot and test the car. Also the fantastic dinner on our first night with some very special entertainment by Matt Dusk just pumped us up to the right level. Matt dusk is a real entertainer. I just wished we had clubs like this still around. You know like in the old days,…

Event Photography – Tanner Foust at Ford HQ

The Name Tanner Foust will ring a bell with most gear heads, videos of his Stunts will ring a lot more bells even and then there is Top Gear USA! ‘nough said! I can’t really remember the first time I heard the Name Tanner Foust or seen him race or do a crazy stunt but certainly was some time before I started following Ken Blocks craziness, who I for the first time really was aware of, a little before Gymkhana 1, so go figure. So when after the last Ford Event I was asked if I wanted join an internal…
