Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars Calendar 2018 / shot in Spain

{automotive} In July we got a call from Mercedes-Benz Germany. They told us that they love our natural style of taking photos and they would love for us to be part of the international 2018 Mercedes-Benz passenger cars calendar.

Five other car photographers from all around the world were selected for this collaboration. Each photographer got a country and a car. We got the GLC and Spain. We decided to go up country to the lesser traveled north and east. Our main spot was Bardenas Reales, a semi-desert natural region.

We are super honoured to have been part of this, it was definitely a 2017 highlight.

You can buy the calendar here.

Have a look at the photographs used and some behind-the-scenes shots.

“The Mercedes-Benz 2018 passenger car calendar takes you for a ride with the new EQ Power vehicles. Look forward to the fascinating trip with #MBSocialCar photographers and allow yourself to become inspired for 12 entire months.”
