Porsche Track Experience / season 2018

{automotive} The Porsche Track Experience was once again amazing to be part of for another season in 2018. Looking back at all the Porsche pictures we shot in 2018 and all the countries we saw in Europe… grateful for awesome clients and fun work. Several visits to the Nürburgring, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, ACI Vallelunga Circuit and more made this a heck of an experience. One of the things we love about this job are all the interesting people we meet and friends we make. Bring on 2019!!

First Ascent / winter collection 2018 / shot in Cape Town, South Africa

{commercial} First Ascent‘s new winter range was launched last week! It was super fun shooting this campaign with an awesome crew a few weeks back at the height of summer.

We could not believe our luck. We had real rain for the new rain jackets ;).  Thanks to everyone involved, we had loads of fun! DNA
