Represented by Catherine Collins Anton Watts London - Los Angeles

In this full CGI Polestar1 project Anton collaborated with Curve Digital. The concept was to not only create a car in CG but to also create its environment. Anton supplied visual reference from Nordic locations, including tree types, islands, road shapes, and architectural designs.

One of the most important points was to create the correct type of light - Anton wanted to have the mist and mood of a Scandinavian morning. Curve approached this by experimenting with volumetric fog and various kinds of CG noise. This in combination with sun position generated the appropriate look.

Nick Limb, CEO of Curve said: "We loved the challenge of working on this project with Anton, and the beauty of using full CGI gave us the ability to control the light whilst retaining the delicacy of the mist/fog, which was essential for the final overall look and feel."

Jeff Ludes Photos Los Angeles

Times have quickly changed, but Jeff’s commitment remains the same: to prepare ahead and create the best shoot circumstances possible, then make some amazing images. Early in the year, Jeff and his team of two assistants, plus talent, spent a day in the California desert with Porsche’s latest 911. On this personal project, Jeff showed what can be accomplished with a skeleton crew, coming away with shots including car-to-car action and drone shots.

CGI projects also tend to lend themselves to a somewhat more compact team, with the car rendered digitally in post.  Here are a couple recent examples from projects for Nissan and Renault. With CGI shots, because the car isn’t real, Jeff finds it essential to keep all other aspects as real as possible, such as shooting a reference vehicle in place, and lighting it as they would on any other shoot.

Jeff’s production team has been working to implement protocols for working conscientiously and safely in this ’new normal’.  Both high-tech solutions such as live screen sharing, and simple things, like the use of masks, combine to make productions that are smart, effective, and produce great shots.

Lisa Linke Los Angeles

One of the projects Lisa photographed in 2020 was a personal shoot with the new BMW Z4 at the Bridge House in Los Angeles. This unique house, designed by Dan Brunn Architecture, was the perfect modern location to compliment the Z4´s stylish body lines. 

During the time quarantining at home Lisa went on occasional walks around her neighborhood in Venice Beach capturing a very different city, not the typical busy Venice vibe we are used to. 

The Porsche 911 Speedster Heritage Edition was another project Lisa captured for the manufacturer. This super rare 911 was later auctioned off as a benefit to raise funds to help fight the spread of Coronavirus.

WE! SHOOT IT Frankfurt - Munich

WE! SHOOT IT, Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, present their work ‘CX-Ray’, that makes fashion and transportation melt, plus a new website.

A high fashion model from Miami, a car like from another planet, a completely down-to-earth location and good styling: these are the ingredients creative duo Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon had to present their new personal work ‘CX-Ray’ on Production Paradise.

“We just didn’t want to go down the same old beaten transportation track, but instead let the creative juices flow,” the two photographers tell Production Paradise. Of course, the two petrolheads need a car for the mission. The 1970s station wagon ‘from outer space’ in the form of a Citroen CX Break is precisely the right antagonist for male model Ray and the outfits styled by Melina Johannsen, with everything from a balloon silk tracksuit to sensitive vintage fashion or even a fine Cavalli jacket.

The two proudly announce that they are represented in the US by Jay Rodan.

In light of current events, the two have completely redesigned their website. You’ve got to see for yourself what all is new!
