Mercedes E-Class with Nadav Kander

  • Nadav Kander brings his unique style to this car campaign. Fresh from capturing Donald Trump for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year cover, the photographer flew to Lanzarote to shoot backplates and HDR spheres, and continued to a private platform in the South of Spain to photograph the convertible. 
    The E-Class was top secret at the time so could not be photographed on location - it needed to be shot on a closed set with high security, 

    As well as working to set the car seamlessly within the volcanic landscapes, the layouts also contained architectural elements. Initially the idea was to have a modular set built that could be moved around the platform. But with time pressing, our Berlin team offered to create the elements in CGI instead - we matched the layouts perfectly, to the delight of the clients.
