Asphalt Dining – or how I drove 5000km through Europe to cook a beautiful dish

Last year me and my friend Chef Reuven Schockner went on a roadtrip to Malaga, Spain for an Event with Mercedes-Benz. We took the opportunity to film the whole trip and also show the dish Reuven had come up with for this trip. Inspired by everything that a trip like this lets you experience. From Düsseldorf to Paris to Bordeaux to Bilbao to Madrid to Malaga and back.

Automotive Photography – Monaco, Mercedes and two wonderful photographers.

Last year we went on a wonderful drive down Monaco for a photo production for and with Mercedes-Benz. I was on the production team and helped out as good as possible and shot some BTS footage along the way. The photographers Lisa Linke and Nate Hassler were given two Mercedes-AMG SL63s in the Championship Edition. One white, one black. Also along the ride Stellan Stephenson who was Lisa and Nate’s photo assistant on this trip.

Travel photography – To the North-cape and back (part two)

So we made it all up in one piece. An amazing trip, exhausting, beautiful and lots of great opportunities to shoot some amazing photos, but when I first heard of the idea for the trip, I thought it would make so much sense to not fly back, but to drive back down all the way through Norway this time. Luckily I was able to convince the fine people at Mercedes-Benz and even get the Hasselblad with me on board for this part of the trip. I got a H5D-40 and a couple of beautiful lenses with and I was ready…

Travel photography – To the North-cape and back (part one)

This is one of those trips. Probably a once in a lifetime thing. Especially in this shape and form. Mercedes-Benz organized another fantastic roadtrip and this one went a little beyond everything we have done so far. What I have done so far for sure. The main trip was planned to promote the the GLE and take a group of around 22 Journalists, Bloggers, Instagramers from Kitzbühel in Austria to the North-cape. an at least 4000km Journey. The group was a fantastic mix of people from all over the world. Russia to South Africa, Italy, France and so on.

Travel photography – #MBRT15 road trip.

It was that time of year again and I was, for the first time, on my way to Alabama. Birmingham, Alabama to be precise. To meet up with a group of Bloggers, journalists, photographers and videographers to drive all the way up to New York City and the New York Autoshow. We would be “guarding” the brand new GLE from A to B and produce some beautiful work along the way. As so often on group trips like this time will be limited, so you can’t go totally bonkers and should be thoughtful of the others. Also the time table…

#mbrt13 – the video

It has been a while since we got back from this fantastic road trip and yes it took me a very long time to finish this video, but it’s finally here and I hope you will enjoy our little trip down memory lane.

Lots of great stuff lined up to be posted and shot in the coming days and weeks. and for all my other #mbrt13 posts, just follow the link. Teymur. #mbrt13 movie from Teymur on…

#mbrt13 – Instax invasion

Here a very candid collection of all the Fuji Instax shots of our trip. Still my favorite camera system at the moment!!! Hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I do. Oh and the order might be a bit off 🙂

#mbrt13 – the end is nigh

It’s nigh, but not here yet. We finish our digital stills journey today with a huge post. 52 photos. There is still a bit more to come though. We have a whole bunch of wonderful Fuji Instax scans coming up, as the Video I am still editing! After that though I promise at least one non-car photo post. And a glorious one for sure. I hope you will enjoy this post as you did the ones before and in case you missed them follow this link the previous posts. Cheerio and have a great weekend, Teymur.

#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…
