Pascal Schonlau

about
Pascal Schonlau: Photographer. Fascinated by surfaces, bodies, shades, digital artefacts. Sometimes commercial, mostly conceptual. Pascal Schonlau’s work explores the boundaries of the human body in its shape and appearance under the influence of digital media. German–born artist excludes CGI as a method of production, and yet Schonlau reproduces digitally seeming artefacts through sculptural settings and precision photography. Playing with sleek surfaces of various objects is a main characteristic of Schonlau’s digital creations. The images appear hyperreal and perfectly artificial. Small imperfections and discrepancies within the picture seem to be the ultimate proof of their ‘natural’ origin and thereby create ambiguity for the viewer. Pascal Schonlau operates from his studio in London.

Anton Watts

about
Anton Watts was born in Melbourne in 1973. He graduated from Australia's prestigious PSC in 1992 and moved to London to pursue fashion photography, working between London and Paris. He targeted car magazines with his fashion book and before long he was travelling the world shooting cars for leading UK magazines.

His work is cinematic and is characterised by a strong colour palette. The love of fashion, where it all began, remains.

about the artwork
I was one of 11 photographers commissioned by Redwood to shoot the automotive art book ASTON MARTIN - THE BOOK, featuring Aston Martin’s most iconic cars from the 1940s to the present day.  Each photographer was allocated a chapter and car; mine was the DB7.  I set my character driven story depicting edge and sophistication in Joshua Tree National Park.

about the artwork
A personal project exploring the Japanese art of 'Dekotora'  For more than 40 years Japanese truck drivers have been piling on lights, patterned fabrics, and other over-the-top adornments to their work trucks, creating moving masterpieces covered in LEDs. This tradition of decorated trucks or “Dekotora” originated from a 1970s Japanese movie series inspired by Smokey and the Bandit titled Torakku Yaro or “Truck Rascals.” Drivers first began decorating their vehicles in the style of the comedy-action films in hopes of being cast in upcoming films. Eventually the extravagant trucks became a way of life for many workers, with decoration costs to produce such elaborate vehicles sometimes running over $100,000. Although the art form is now in decline after it reached its peak in the ’80s and ’90s, the Utamaro-Kai Association of Dekotora drivers has begun to help raise funds for various charity initiatives, including areas of the country that have been hit by the recent Tsunami. Also included is work for the new Suzuki Swift and Carwow.

BEN & MARTIN

about
BAM Photographers are Ben & Martin, two professional advertising photographers, based in Cologne/Germany. After traveling around the world twice, working and sipping coffee on each continent of the planet, they teamed up as BAM Photographers to share our skills, love & passion for photography. Wether it be People, Portrait, Cars, Landscapes, Architecture or CGI, they put 100% effort into each project while keeping a good vibe.

about the artwork
'Hocke' (German for squat) - a revived 90s hip-hop pose, trending on instagram and in fashion editorials - is the title of a series by BAM, aka Ben and Martin. The two photographers portrayed chilled car lovers, posing with a vintage Golf Mk1 and a Toyota Tazz on the beaches of Muizenberg, outside of Capetown.   South African manufacturing plants were the last ones to build the entry level cars up until the late 2000s and both models are still hugely popular today, greatly defining the streetscapes of the cities. All bare bones and boxy, these affordable cars are like blank canvases that can be driven as they are or pimped out and completely converted under the hood to challenge modern supercars for a race.

about the artwork
Mercedes G-Klasse. Dichte Weitwinkelfotografie aus extrem kurzer Distanz zur fahrenden G-Klasse zeichnet diese Strecke aus. Ungewöhnliche Dynamik und Action zieht den Betrachter mitten ins Geschehen. Im editorialenl One-Shot Gedanken sind diese Aufnahmen nicht composed. Pure Fortografie verknüpft mit brachialer Explosivität und dem archaischsten Geländefahrzeug. Stronger than time.

Making Pictures

about
The Wade Brothers are the sorts of people who make you feel like you want to shave your head, grow a shapely beard and move to Kansas so you can frolic in their skate park studio and casually set things on fire. From a commissioning perspective they’re THE UNICORN PACKAGE. They get it, they listen, they visualize, they’re complete professionals and they are exactly who they say they are. They’re a sure thing. There’s nothing more disconcerting than briefing someone who is masquerading behind their influences, contrite and nervous. The Wades are unashamedly bold and they know their stuff. And that’s not because they’ve read up or because they run a successful tumblr, they just have it inside their bones. They know their subject inside out, which is why they’re able to tear it up from the inside and create something new, something totally and truly original. For advertising creatives working with a team of this calibre, well, that’s the Holy Grail.

The Wade Brothers are not photographers, they’re visionaries. They are inspired only by their united autonomous lunacy. And it’s palpably infectious and entirely uncontrived. Their commercial currency comes from something you cannot learn, something you can’t harvest or acquire on eBay, it’s experience and wisdom but it’s unaffected and ageless. They didn’t learn to be cool, they just are. Imagine commissioning a technically flawless photographer, a man who knows his stuff, knows exactly who he is and who he isn’t. Imagine that he can read what the client wants, he knows how to push it, and then double that human… Two best friends with the same eyes and the same brain, and you’ve got The Wades.    Clients include Adidas, Asics, Bacardi, Channel 4, Chivas, Easyjet, Ford, Gatorade, Helly Hansen, Hotels.com, Honda, Jameson, Oakley, Nike, Puma, Stella Artois and Sky.

The Wade Brothers photographed Paralympic athletes for Toyota, the worldwide mobility partner for the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

about the artwork
 "Catanare" is the Venezuelan name for klunker, the English name for an old shabby car. In the oil richest country, where petrol costs 100% less than drinking water, these old cars are common in the daily Venezuelan street scape. In addition to private drivers, this type of vehicle is traditionally used as a collective taxi called "taxi por puesto" and is considered a cheap and flexible alternative to the regular taxi and waiting for the bus. It thus serves as a transport vehicle of a fixed start and end point, for example, the connection of two cities, towns or urbanizations. Depending on the agreement, the end point can be set by the passenger. The price for passenger transport is negotiated before departure and paid in cash when getting off. As Venezuela suffers from the worst economic crisis in its history in recent years, these rolling historic vehicles are slowly disappearing from the streets. Not that there is not enough petrol to fill their fuel tanks, the gasoline paradise has problems getting spare parts for their "Catanares" because of the economic embargo. To the detriment of the population thereby the public passenger transport worsens and has become a speculative object of the countrys hyperinflation.

Benjamin Pichelmann

about
Benjamin Pichelmann. Born 1976 in the north of Germany. Why Cars? He probably wouldn´t give a complex answer to whom is asking this question. But he might say: „because for me cars are one of the most fascinating design objects“. You really understand what he loves about shooting cars when you see him at work. He literally falls into a trance hanging out of a driving cars´s trunk in front to capture the perfect dynamic of his model driving behind or sitting on a grass strip in the middle of a racetrack waiting for the drivers to slide their cars into the turn. While others are portraying people, Benjamin is portraying cars. He is a visionary who always tries to capture each car´s uniqueness and characteristic design. Even the smallest detail is well worth for him to be captured in a picture. His images often invites the viewer to jump in the car and take a race. Beside his automotive photographs his portfolio also shows several portraits, because in addition to his passion for cars, he is a passionate friend of people. Benjamin is working for Mercedes Benz Magazine, Mercedes Benz Classic Magazine, Ramp-Magazine, Alfa Romeo/FCA, Skoda AG, VW-Magazine, Porsche AG and …… Benjamin lives in Hamburg and works all around the world – permanently happy.

Michael Schnabel

about
The German photographer, Michael Schnabel, does not simply wait for the ‘decisive moment’, he creates it. He is a perfectionist whose work – particularly his original and sophisticated landscape, automobile and architecture photography – has won him growing worldwide acclaim. His international breakthrough came with his series, Stille Berge (Tranquil Mountains), which impressively exemplifies his artistic approach: meticulous preparation, total concentration, genuine commitment, a clearly defined concept and ‘his own’ light. As a result, it is hardly surprising that Lürzer’s Archive has long numbered him among the world’s top 200 advertising photographers.
 
Born in 1966, Michael Schnabel studied photography in Darmstadt. During his early creative period, he discovered the world around him as a stage. A photographer whose work is very much in demand, he succeeds in visualizing complex worlds of interlocking motifs with such surpassing skill that the viewer is simultaneously surprised and emotionally touched. Although his work is contemporary in style, Schnabel always strives to lend his images an enduring, almost classical quality. Clients from all over the world have booked his services: Schnabel has worked in deserts, mountain ranges and megapolises. Furthermore, his work has received a number of national and international awards.
 
Schnabel’s highly impressive artistic oeuvre has been presented in numerous one-man shows and group exhibitions and is to be found in many art collections. In these works, Schnabel is constantly exploring and extending the possibilities offered by photography as a medium – an approach that also bears fruit in his commissioned work. His oeuvre reveals an ongoing process of development, yet photography remains his domain. Schnabel also enjoys sharing his considerable experience and knowledge by teaching at universities and by his membership of juries of the ADC, AOP and D&AD, to name but a few. Michael Schnabel lives with his family in South Germany.

about the artwork
Better use your mind to travel. The shown pictures are portraits in a transposed sense. The basis were portraits which were found in family albums. Persons of the ordinary life, no celebrities, models or actors. These pictures were confronted with the author's picture language and thus generated narrative portraits that invent with humor, the genre of the collage, the comix and the game analogous versus digital stories in which the portrayed person resurfaces as in a dream. The people in these portraits become actors in a surreal context. The world of the individual before and the individual behind the camera is a symbiosis and creates a picture which ultimately surprise both.  

 

Patrick Curtet

about
Patrick Curtet has been shooting professionally for over 20 years and after concentrating on sports and reportage photography, where he traveled to more than 60 different countries, he shifted his attention to automotive work. He is really keen on proper technique and has an expertise in controlling the lighting, effects and/or other elements in order to control the scene. But he works to have these elements hidden and out of sight... as if they’re not even there.

He has moved his base from Paris to Los Angeles to further develop his very special art of photography. At the moment, he is planning an exhibition of his work, which will be on display in Hollywood this September. We will report on it. Find several more productions by Patrick on GoSee, Instagram and his website curtet.com.
