London: Ray Massey

"In an effort to find new styles and approaches, Chromedia, the in-house Porsche marketing studio, recently approached a number of photographers who were not noted for car work and ask that they provide proposals and themes for a series of images of the new Porsche Macan for a “coffee table" book.

I was lucky enough to be furnished with one of the few existing prototypes which I spent a few enjoyable days shooting in a car studio in London, and then on location in Cornwall. Bright sunshine, sunsets and photoshopped blurry roads were not on my agenda, so I went for a very 'organic' wet and wild,  black-on-black with lots of water thrown in!

Porsche loved the shots and came back and asked me to shoot the latest GT2 Cayenne for an advertising brief celebrating 50 years' racing, on a road trip from Stuttgart to the Porsche Design studio in Zel Am See, through the Austrian Tyrol and down to the historic Targa Florio race circuit in the Sicilian mountains where Porsche first cut its teeth as a successful racing marque 50 years ago."
