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.

From Our Clients

I worked with Andrew on a photography project that involved a high level of visual complexity for a multinational client. Andrew was clear and professional in his briefing, but at the same time, was open to other ideas and approaches.

Our take-away menu advertised TamarindThai.com.au, even though the site didn’t exist.

Digital Tsunami offered great ideas and design to set up a professional website that matches our name, ideas and style of the restaurant.

Andrew is very knowledgeable IT professional and he never hesitated to see and consult us in the restaurant.

Once again, thanks for your promptness and partnership.

The current challenge of my job at Abbott is one of the greatest I've faced in 25 years of IT career. It's reassuring to know I can count on people like you when things go wrong.
