Chris Lawrence Italy - Spain

"I grew up in the darkroom of my family's newspaper company in the United States. In the early 90s, I went to art school in Italy. After many years as an art director, in 2005 I decided to leave Young & Rubicam Madrid to follow my dream of becoming a commercial photographer. From there I went on to work for all the major ad agencies in Spain, having created campaigns for clients like Chevrolet, Fanta, Land Rover and many others. Before moving to back to Italy in 2010 I had already began working for international clients Nike, MasterCard and Eden, just to name a few.

From 2010 to the present day I have worked very hard to follow my childhood dream to become an automotive photographer. It is a very competitive world out there, but I have had the pleasure to have worked for some of the most iconic car manufacturers in the world.

My love of creating art has taken me to shoot worldwide campaigns for MG, Pininfarina, Porsche, and many more."

Ciprian Mihai Bucharest

Ciprian Mihai is a photographer based in Europe, but his work goes beyond borders, working in the Middle East, Asia, and more. His current portfolio describes 15 years of shooting automotive commercial, lifestyle and motion photography around the world.

From his latest project we get an awesome view of the BMW X///M in different styles, mixing people and cars together. Ciprian shot a new commercial for Honda and created a new way of combining CGI and photography for a Porsche GT3 shoot. Using drones to shoot is a new way of creating awesome angles and introducing the audience in the atmosphere of the location.

His portfolio is based on using lighting techniques and retouching to perfection, but also shooting with natural light, scouting locations and picking up the perfect moment to shoot. Picking one photo from a set sometimes isn't enough, as he loves to have a full feature that can tell the story.

During his career he has worked for lots of automotive brands like BMW, Honda, Dacia, VW, Toyota, Acura, Lynk&Co, Chery, Chevrolet, Ford, Buick, Skoda, Opel and worked with various advertising agencies around the world.

Harniman London

"New campaign work to kick off 2023. Hero images, lifestyle and social. Working with an amazing team shooting the Genesis G80 with agency Innocean Seoul in South Korea.

The first time we worked with Innocean was in Dallas shooting Hyundai a few years ago and we had a blast (nearly got snowed in there for Christmas… but that’s another story!). This shoot was no different, the best bunch of people - it was almost like we weren’t working.

To come: an exciting Rolls-Royce project, sharing soon.

Get an insight behind the scenes on the regular blog, and our latest interview with Production Paradise."

Jeff Ludes Los Angeles

Jeff wrapped up 2022 with a couple exciting projects, both around his home base of Southern California. First up is a project for Hyundai, shooting their new Ioniq 6 electric vehicle. Over six days, Jeff and team covered the car from every angle, and then shot a day of video, presented during the reveal of the car to the public at the Los Angeles Auto Show. With a huge shot list, Jeff managed multiple units around the city to ensure they got every shot.

Next up is a cool concept for Turo, the car-sharing service. For their headline, "Open New Doors", Jeff created this series, where a whole other world exists just through the vehicle. The smooth results are not only the result of great retouching, but also good planning on set, to match the angle and integrate lighting.

Based in Los Angeles, Jeff has shot automotive projects around the world for over 15 years.
