Mercedes-Benz photography

Close

Overview

Mercedes-Benz has been engineering innovative, race-winning, luxury motor vehicles for over a century.

For the launch of the “S-Klasse”, 400 international automotive journalists were invited to Stuttgart. In preparation for that launch, an S500 luxury saloon and German personnel were flown to Hong Kong for a photographic shoot.

Head of Production Andy Chan and Executive Producer Andrew W Morse (of Essential Asia, now a division of Digital Tsunami), and their crew of photographic technicians, grips, gaffers, stylists, make-up, hair and wardrobe artists and production assistants managed the shoot. Asian and European models were cast in Hong Kong.

The crew shot on Hong Kong locations, including the prestigious Clearwater Bay Golf and Country Club, the fluid contemporary architecture of the Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Excelsior Hotel, The Peak and the podium of Ocean Terminal in TsimShaTsui against the dramatic Hong Kong Island skyline.

Andrew W Morse has a long personal and professional connection with the Mercedes-Benz brand, having featured the cars in many feature film, TVC and corporate projects, and driven a Mercedes-Benz when attending high school!

Andy, Andrew and their crew also serviced the 35mm film shoot of the global launch film.

(We) took a fairly substantial audit of .. sophisticated sites both technically and creatively .. Out of six prominent designers, Digital Tsunami stood out.

The quality of the images, the sophisticated management of text .. together with smooth animations makes (our) website of very high calibre.

I would personally rate this site in the top 2 percent of world wide web sites today.

We were very happy with the development process and the outcome. The objectives have all been achieved, in terms of usability and ease of use in updating the site. You definitely nailed both of these.

Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.

While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
