Hamburg: Thomas Motta

Thomas Motta started working as a photographer of industrial facilities in 1996. For six years he travelled to places all over Europe, Asia and South America, shooting for clients in the steel industry.

To focus more on what he was always passionate about, he moved to Hamburg where he assisted well known photographers in automotive and people photography until 2007.

All of these experiences gave his minimalistic, reduced, natural style the fine-tuning it has today. Thomas's photographs are often "one-shots" without composing. He prefers fast cars in their "natural environment", so whenever possible he shoots them car-to-car.

Additionally, he makes spontaneous handheld shots, which are not very common in today's commercial automobile photography. Thomas also has the experience and knowledge needed to translate his style to a virtual car during a CGI shoot.

He has been represented by UPFRONT photo & film since 2015.

Clients include ADAC, Blohm+Voss, BMW, Condé Nast, Ferrari, GQ, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Opel, Porsche, Skoda, Thyssen Krupp, Viseon, Volvo and VW.
