Concept Car Photography: A Brief Look

Last year, photographer Steffen Jahn had the opportunity to photograph BMW’s handsome new concept car, the Zagato. The following video offers a quick behind-the-scenes look at Jahn’s photo shoot, which was set in various European locations:

Jahn contrasted the sleek lines of the Zagato with rugged snow-capped mountains for a striking composition. His work on this shoot was presented at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2012, an annual event that was initiated in Italy in 1929 to celebrate historic cars. The BMW Group has organized the event since 2005.

    Loved the final pictures. The editing and music, for me, diminished and interfered with the viewer being able to carefully study and appreciate the fine work of the photographer.
