"Photography — that’s how I want to talk", Tyler Gourley confesses. It’s how he communicates.

While growing up, he would fantasize with his father about buying classic cars and fixing them up. Enthralled with drawing cars and all their interesting lines and curves, Gourley originally started taking photographs only as drawing resources. But he discovered that he reveled in finding the key attributes of a subject and featuring them in new and expressive ways, so he put down the pencil and picked up a camera.

His commercial photography career has realised that early love of cars through large, complex shoots for BMW, Volvo, Jeep, Subaru, Lexus and Acura.

"As objects, cars are very beautiful", he says. "What makes a good car photographer is finding the key attributes and the lines... and what really makes that car shine".

WE-SHOOT-IT Frankfurt - Munich

The last days of summer are near so a wintery refreshment is just right. WE! Shoot creative duo Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon didn't leave anything out in their wintry transport spread.

The new bright red Jaguar F-Pace plows through the wintery snow-capped Alps. The backplates were already created in spring in southern Bavaria and Austria, some with a drone, while the spheres were also delivered by the duo thanks to a 360° sphere camera. Despite the -20° temperatures and the frozen diesel, the multi-day backplate shoot at 2,750m altitude went smoothly.

For the third vehicle from the Hyundai I30 family, the pair - who had already shot the Waggon and Hatchback - also filmed the trailer in addition to the studio stills: a job quite welcomed by the two automotive pros as being true to their slogan "anything visual".

A few days later, the team flew to Berlin to stage the brand new KIA Stinger together with Paul van Dyk for Innocean Worldwide. For a couple of days the creative duo and the star DJ went through the streets of the German capital with the new Coupé - a perfect match!
