With Hollywood star and Porsche ambassador Patrick Dempsey, transportation photographer DAVID MAURER took it to the racetrack in southern Spain in the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport – entirely out of the comfort zone and straight to the limit until the dark of night set in.
Patrick Galen Dempsey, born in 1966, is an American actor and race car driver. He became known above all through the role of Dr. Derek Shepherd in the ABC TV series Grey’s Anatomy. Motor racing means a lot to the actor who says that racing is his true passion, but he also enjoys working on the film set. Patrick is an avid race car driver in his spare time and competed in the 24 Hours of Daytona in 2008, among other races.
Patrick Dempsey : “Porsche has always held a special place in my life. Whether as a race car driver or co-owner of a racing team, the brand radiates a special passion for me and the feeling to strive for top performance, which I always felt connected to. I am very happy to be part of the lifestyle world of Porsche Design outside of motor sport and to represent Porsche Design Eyewear as a brand ambassador in 2021,” says Patrick Dempsey.
The responsible agency was Keko, and post-producer was Simon Schinken.
“Keep it simple and connect the best of the best” – words to live by for new GoSee entry THE KLUBHOUSE COLLECTIVE, a post production company with Swedish creative power. “For the best results, it takes the best minds,” says Christa Klubert, who has worked as a representative in the areas of photography and fine art for many years, and who knows exactly what she is talking about.
In Johan ‘Cabbe’ Cabezos / Senjor Studio Stockholm, Christa Klubert has found the ideal partner, as Head Creative and retoucher, for her new project : A collective of high-end retouchers and CGI artists. Whether for large-scale or small but exquisite projects, for commercial work or editorials – the services offered by THE KLUBHOUSE COLLECTIVE are individually tailored to meet every requirement. There’s nowhere better than THE KLUBHOUSE. Welcome to the KLUB. GoSee had a few questions.
“On the German and international markets, I see great potential for such a collaborative network, which finds not one but several solutions for each challenge and is able to adapt to every new one as a flexible unit,” Christa tells GoSee.
And why have you moved from being a representation for photographers to representing post producers and post production companies? “I just can’t get enough of strong images. They are ultimately the products of a long creative chain of individual steps. I have an extensive network at my disposal which I would like to use to give images the perfect final touches precisely there : in post production.”
Which clientele does your work appeal to or who is you target group? Who books Klubhouse? “First of all, photographers – that is, the best of the best. Our services are, however, also directed at agencies, the industry and direct clients.”
We present you two new jobs here on GoSee. A celebrity portrait for GQ UK with actor Rami Malek. The actor plays the antagonist of the eponymous secret agent in the new James Bond film. He was photographed by Kurt Iswarienko, film producer and husband of US star Shannen Doherty.

After Alex Waltl completed his education as a photographer in Stuttgart, he first went to New York for three months, where he assisted photographers such as Annie Leibowitz, Russell James and several others in the years which followed. As a consequence, he was offered a full-time position in London as an assistant to Mario Testino, one of the world’s most sought-after photographers. Shortly after that, he became his first assistant and traveled around the globe with Mario over the next six years, producing large campaigns and photographing for the most renowned magazines. Since 2018, Berlin has been his home.
