Degler Studio Barcelona - Torino

Degler Studio's history cannot be told without knowing the person behind the lens.  

Piotr Degler (1985) grew up in Spain, in the midst of a family of musicians and architects. Equally influenced by art and technology, and motivated by his love for the four wheels, he moved to Turin after graduation to study car design, ending up at Bertone. It is here, in one of the world’s meccas of car design, that he started merging his daily job as a designer with another of his passions, photography.  

It is precisely in the combination of photography and his expertise in car design where resides the added value of his images. Degler hands the observer the key features of every design, the masterstrokes imagined by the creator, by reinterpreting through each photo the perspective, lines and volumes, of some of the most important production models and prototypes in the automotive history.  

Today, Piotr Degler is considered one of the most respected photographers in the industry, having worked for legendary names such as MaseratiPininfarina and the everlasting Ferrari

In 2016 he published his first book, 'Carros de Cuba'. Last year he published his new and awaited coffee table book 'Made in Italy', after more than 10 years in the making.

Frederic Schlosser Frankfurt

Frederic Schlosser is an automotive photographer focused on strong moods and emotional light. Born and raised in Germany, Frederic's passion is mostly about cars and design.

His latest work for the all-new KIA Seltos shows his artistic way of shooting cars. The conscious interplay of light and shadow creates interesting shapes and layers to frame the car. The campaign was shot in Sydney, Australia, alongside with the famous model Georgia Fowler. It’s about transporting a lifestyle and a feeling rather than just showing a product.

For BMW ALPINA Frederic photographed the new XB7 on the beautiful German island of Sylt. Dramatic skies and soft lighting are underlining the powerful, luxury car. The constantly changing weather situation on the island was a challenge which allowed only short time frames of natural light.

Both projects are photographed and retouched by Frederic.

Jeff Ludes Los Angeles

Subaru has just launched their all-new Crosstrek, so finally Jeff can share the project, shot last fall. The team timed the shoot perfectly to capture the turning colors of the leaves around Telluride, Colorado. As a top-secret new vehicle, special methods were used to keep it out of public view while shooting. Shooting in the mountains is no issue, but to capture images of the vehicle in town, Jeff employed the new Gybow LED lighting array, at a secure LA studio. Check Jeff’s Instagram for more details on this amazing tool.
