WE! SHOOT IT, aka Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon, photograph the electric car AIWAYS U5 (social media) for Herren der Schöpfung

The creative duo from WE! shoot it c/o Kelly Kellerhoff, aka Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon, once again had the pleasure of staging the AIWAYS U5 on commission for Frankfurt-based agency Herren der Schöpfung (part of the Liganova Group). The brief this time once more was to show an entirely new side of the modern electric SUV. To do so, the two photographers scouted the perfect location in Austria’s Vorarlberg region for their spread named ‘RED’!

“When we saw the location for the first time online, we were immediately blown away, and when we scouted it during the location check in Austria, we realized that it was even much cooler in real life,” Michael tells GoSee. “The perfect match of location and vehicle was rounded off by a good model cast and ideal styling.” For the campaign, the two photographers chose stylist Sabine Holderer again. Model Daniel came via Instyle from Berlin.

The result is a perfect balancing act between transportation and fashion / people photography.

WE! SHOOT IT, Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon, photograph a personal landscape project in Scotland and England’s Lake District

Last year, the two photographers from WE! SHOOT IT c/o KELLY KELLERHOFF were drawn to the solitude of the highlands in northern Scotland as well as the Lake District, where they photographed a personal landscape project off the beaten tourist routes.

“It all meant oftentimes getting up early and above all: waiting, waiting and more waiting! Sometimes, we even had to come back a few days later because the weather was simply ‘too good’ to capture the typical Scottish colorfulness,” Thomas tells GoSee. Photos were often shot with extremely long exposure times to depict the flowing water and cloud movement in greater detail.

Post production was taken care of by the duo personally once they got back to Germany, and they present you a larger selection of their motifs for the first time exclusively on GoSee!

WE! SHOOT IT, Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon, photograph the AIWAYS U5 during the last warm days of summer

In the last warm days of summer this year, the two people and transportation specialists Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, aka WE! SHOOT IT c/o KELLY KELLERHOFF, were on the road at the beautiful Lake Plansee in Tyrol to capture the Elektor SUV U5 for the Chinese electric carmaker AIWAYS in authentic vacation photos. Models Andreas and Hannah from Instyle stood in front of the camera, with casual styling by Sabine Holderer. Jasmin Meier took care of hair & makeup.

Post was in the hands of the two photographers themselves. “The special request was to create a spread as authentic as possible about a young couple on a warm vacation day in late summer,” the two photographers tell GoSee.

And you can see for yourself on GoSee that the two experts have once again succeeded in delivering a masterful mix of people and transportation with the person front and center.

The up-and-coming brand AIWAYS has taken up the goal of getting a young, tech-savvy generation excited about future-oriented e-mobility. Aiways, a provider of individual mobility solutions from Shanghai, was founded in 2017. The Aiways European headquarters is located in Munich. With the Aiways U5, the company was the first Chinese startup to launch a battery-electric passenger car on the European market in 2020 – an SUV with an impressive range, individual style and high quality.
