Formula E: Eiffel Tower shoot

Event: Eiffel Tower and Paris context shoots
Series: FIA Formula E
Location: Paris, Fance
Date: 21 AprilĀ 2016

When turning Paris into a race track for the FIA Formula E series, it’s worth making use of the landmarks. The DS Virgin Racing press team wanted some hero shots of their drivers Sam Bird and Jean-Eric Vergne in front of the Eiffel Tower; coincidentally, CNN asked for a gallery of contextual shots including an aerial view of the city to get a perspective for where the track ran.

We sent both Shiv Gohil and Nat Twiss along with the DS Virgin Racing party; despite an overcast grey sky, the boys managed to find a patch of blue. Meanwhile, Dan Bathie went for a stroll around the streets adjacent to the track to capture details to colour the sense of being in Paris.
