BMW and Marco Wittmann got DTM Champion 2016, after a super exciting final race weekend on the Hockenheim Ring. To celebrate this victory, BMW M designed a 200 unit limited edition of the M4 called the DTM Champion Edition.
I was sent up to Hockenheim the day after their victory to do a little shooting with the M4 DTM Champions Edition, Marco Wittmann and his BMW M4 DTM Race Car. Sadly they were already tearing down the pits, so I had to switch to Plan B and did the whole shooting in less than a hour on the racetrack. But it worked out quite good.
Over the last years I did a lot of work for BMW M mainly in the documentation sector. But from time to time I get the chance to hijack one of their beauties to do a little extra round of shooting.
And these ones are always special.
Thanks to Andi of Delta E Postproduction Agency for his incredible work on these shots and being so patient with me!!
This year I did a little special send out. After searching for months for a funny and recognizable possibility to present my photos to potential customers I found a „Whooohooo …. itse meee!!“ way to do it.
Everybody likes pizza and everybody knows the boxes when you get one delivered … so I customized a small version of the box by stamping it in two colors (the classy it alien red/white/green) and filing it with a choice of pictures.
I hope you like the idea and if you want one just drop me a message and I´ll send mario to deliver one.
Right before New Years Eve I had the chance to shoot at the Mercedes Benz Off Road Experience at Kitzbühel in Austria.
During wintertime you can drive all Mercedes Benz Off Road Models from the GLA to the G-Class in an open surface quarry. An Off Road Fan finds everything there from gravel roads over lakes to steep ramps he needs to have a lot of fun.
And the best about the whole thing is, everyone can experience that together with a professional driving instructor.
Here you find some more information, shots and the clip from my friends at Marvin Films.
Thanks to Mercedes Benz Offroad Experience and Fischer Appelt Stuttgart for making it work.

BMW M gave me again the chance to do the documentary shots of their M Power Experience. After AbuDhabi in 2012 and Istanbul in 2014, it happened in Las Vegas this year.
What should I tell you about this glittering SinCity right in the desert of Nevada … everything you ever saw or heard about it is true and thats not even all of it.
The Event itself was a great combination of unbelievable locations, good food and perfect fun with the brand new BMW X5M & X6M between the LasVegas Motorspeedway and some scienc roads to drive.
The pictures are just a small glimpse of what I´ve experienced over there.
