Audi magazine commissions Spacesuit
Spacesuit Media photography features in the 04 2016 edition of Audi’s official global publication.
The magazine publisher commissioned Spacesuit to shoot the ABT Schaeffler Audi Sport Formula E team at the sport’s second season finale, in July 2016, in London. The brief was challenging, calling for a mix of portaiture, track shots, pit lane and garage activity. What’s more, the photos needed to slot alongside photos of an Audi road car, taken by another photographer. The publisher wanted shots of race cars on the same parts of the track as the road car, challenging given that the road car was shot on a closed track with total access, whereas our photographers had to shoot under restrictive race conditions, on a narrow track congested with other racing cars.
Adding to the complexity was the fact that the publisher particularly wanted portraits of Lucas di Graiss; however, the Brazilian race driver was fighting for a championship title and was in no mood to pose for photos. The shoot was smoothed by Shiv Gohil’s strong relationship with the driver; Shiv has shot personally for di Grassi in the WEC series, so we were able to get access that others simply couldn’t.
In the end, the publisher was very happy with our content. We supplied high resolution edited photos, which the publisher’s design team tweaked to suit the style of the other photography in the magazine.
