IMO, this is how SUVs should look, black, lowered, and in this case, on 26" brushed Strasse S8s. So damn clean. Let me know what you guys think! Haven't shot in this location in a loooong time, some of you may recognize it. =)

You produce some very high quality car shots and obviously Strasse is very happy with the results.

Personally I still feel like you're often not watching your backgrounds, though. For example, 3. is a really, really nice shot in my opinion. I really like it (minus the flash on the mirror maybe). And in that shot, the buildings in the background really work the way it's framed - great shot.

But 1. and 6. are killed for me with the building snippets sticking up above the roof line. It just doesn't look right to me. But of course that's individual taste...

Thanks for sharing again and definitely quality work!

Thousands of bucks for RIMs, hundreds on lowering springs and the tint and then no money left for actual brakes... Whenever I see an SUV with 20"+ rims and 8" brakes, I just laugh. Oh, and get out of the way :p

HOLY SHH.... those brakes are SOOO damn little!!! the added weight of those wheels cant be helping matters much. If this guy can afford 5 MPG, you think he could buy brakes, haha.

I like the shot with the high-rises and the armored car. It really adds to the BET-inspired, fake, money-centric feel that most people who are interested in a vehicle like this are into. For marketing purposes this is well done.

The detail shot of the Escalade badge and wheel is great!

Thanks for all the compliments everyone! These are 3 piece forged wheels and you'd be surprised at how little they weigh.

You dont have much of the skyline in there. If you hadn't told me you were in Miami I wouldn't be able to tell... you cant see the buildings.

This is a shoot for the wheel manufacture.
Safety dont really matter to them.
Bet they are "blind" to things other than their wheels and logo.

On the shoot - I would pay more attention to the background and glass reflections.
Watch the sun visor on the pass side and Photoshop out the distractions of the road
and background.
FYI - Most car ads are done in studio w/ background added but if you must do outdoors ... it was done at a good time of day w cloud cover.

Wasn't there to photograph the skyline.

So many assumptions here. Like I mentioned in my last post these are custom 3 piece forged wheels. They are much stronger than your average aftermarket wheel and weigh less as well. There isn't anything "unsafe" about these wheels or the car they're on.

As for "most" car ads being done in a studio, that's great, but I much prefer to do things on location.
