Griffith Observatory – Travel Photography

The Observatory must be one of my favourite places on the planet. If I had one wish to choose a place to live, this might be it. Overlooking the vast expanse of Los Angeles, the wonderful Architecture and Griffith Park surrounding it. So here are two older and one new photo from my most recent trip to LA. The two old ones I reedited, as I really did not like the the old editing anymore. Also, as you might have seen, you only see LA and not the Observatory, but it was shot from there. So ok, a couple of…

Cadillac CTS-V at Lake Mead

Taking this best from LA to Vegas and back was so much fun. Such a cool car. I wish we had more time with it, but the time we had I think we used well. and going to Lake Mead and get a couple of shots after or before visiting Hoover Dam. The weather didn’t really give me the mood I was looking for that day, so black and white was the best option I felt. Well still feel. High Contrast, not really interested in showing too much detail besides the car. Even though it is there. This was shot…

The Neon Museum – Las Vegas

While on vacation in Las Vegas, end of last year, we finally took the chance and visited the Neon Museum. One of those must visit tourist destinations. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, and not only that day, but I will go back the next time I am in the area for sure. As with many Museums and landmarks like that a lot depends on your guide that takes you around and gives you all teh facts and personal tidbits, but I am sure here everyone is into the subject matter more than enough. The experience there also…

Model Photography – VerjinyaLee

Back when I was in NYC for the MBRT15 Roadtrip I wanted to at least do one model shoot and was very lucky to have VerjinyaLee recommended to me. What a fun shoot and I think it shows. I am very happy with the results, especially as we only shot for quite a short amount of time. Always so much fun to create beautiful work with great people. Check out her portfolio over at http://verjinyalee.tumblr.com and let me know what you think.

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…

Car photography – Split decisions #mbrt15

I have written a lot about road-trips and I have been on many and a few weeks ago it was time to hit the road. This time with Mercedes-Benz again. “Guarding” the new GLE from its birthplace in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to New York City. This post is kind of a teaser. Seven photos, six conceptual, one typical. I had a great plan. I also misjudged the trips timing, by a lot. Besides the split photos I had planned another type of shot. And it does only look good as a full set, which did not happen. Ah well. You win…

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…

#mbrt13 – the video

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…

#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,…

#mbrt13 – we are ready for takeoff.

We are not only ready for take off, but by the time you are reading this, we should be in the air already. I was planning on putting a more elaborate packing post up than this, but… well… you know. time just went by like nothing. lets see though who spots what and I will point the gear out later then too 🙂 my german travel buddies all posted blog posts too just right now, so if you are interested in more about our fantastic road trip, check their posts out too!!! Bjoern, Heike, Jan and Jens. If you out…
