TopGear shoots for issue February 2014

{automotive} I’m so proud of the February TopGear(South Africa) issue! (Or how the guys at TopGear call it ‘the Desmond Louw issue’ 🙂 I shot the cover and 28 pages on the inside, including my Detroit to NYC, USA trip I did in August last year! On the technical side, we bought a D800. I had so much fun shooting with this machine. Editing 36 million pixels comes in handy…love it!! Cheers, dna – Desmond

TopGear shoot: Mercedes G-class AMG vs the Suzuki Jimny

I (Desmond) had loads of fun with the guys of TopGear to shoot these two cars, the Mercedes G-class AMG and the Suzuki Jimny. We went mad with them! The whole idea behind the shoot was to compare the cheapest and the most expensive 4×4 vehicles available in South Africa. Buy the latest TopGear mag (August 2013) to check out the whole story!

TopGear shoot BMW M135i

I (Desmond) went out with the TopGear guys to Calvinia, apparently the place where you can buy the best meat in South Africa. They compared the car, a BMW M135i, with a piece of meat. We bought a few steaks and had a braai next to the road. What a cool day! Oh yes, I have the cover photo!!! I love working with awesome people, thanks Calvin Fisher and Braam Peens!
