Colorful is the key word best suited to tag the new spread by the photographer duo from WE! shoot it, represented by KELLY KELLERHOFF. In their search for unusual but reliable locations in times of Corona, the duo discovered precisely what they were looking for in Munich and were able to immediately get the client AIWAYS on board with their colorful concept.
The new electric vehicle U5 by the Chinese manufacturer was staged with model Sarah M. from Mostwanted in a young, powerful and fashion-inspired visual language. The perfect styling for the loud location was taken care of by Andrea Tzelepides c/o FAME, and the reduced, fresh make-up was the work of Jasminka Makeup Artist Jasmin Meier.
Post was once again in the personal hands of the duo : “If you already have a clear conception of how you want a spread to look and also lay the foundation for it with your photographic approach, it’s sometimes better to put on the final touches in post production yourself, too,” Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon tell GoSee.
With their work, the duo once again demonstrated that impressive visual worlds can be created even under restrictive conditions with the right concept and adequate approach. At GoSee, we are definitely just as thrilled about the striking fresh look as AIWAYS!
Aiways is a Chinese car manufacturer with headquarters in Shanghai and a European branch in Munich. The company builds electric cars and uses artificial intelligence. It’s elegant, dynamic design gives the U5 an equally aesthetic and timeless look & feel. The interior features an impressive minimalist design language and finest quality materials.

Even though the summer in southern Germany was a bit rainy from the start, the photographer duo from WE! shoot it c/o KELLY KELLERHOFF still found the perfect evening to photograph their personal work ‘Ferry’ on a Munich parking level. “Model Atshushi N. and the frequently underestimated vintage Porsche 924 had a little rendezvous in the perfect evening light. The result is an authentic people and lifestyle-heavy portfolio spread with which we would like to demonstrate how palpable both model and car can be in our photos.” Michael Compensis & Thomas von Salomon tell GoSee.
For Hans Lehner from LEHNER MOTOREN, WE! shoot it c/o KELLY KELLERHOFF staged a recently rebuilt frame off BMW 2000 Tii Touring with an Alpina A4S engine in a deserted barn in the Upper Bavarian outback. “It’s always nice to get cars in front of our lens that make our hearts leap,” the two photographers tell us. Lehner Motoren Technik, aka LMT, manufactures brushless high-performance electric motors for the highest demands and has meanwhile 50 World Championship titles to show for thanks to the company’s bespoke engine technology.
This personal passion for classic automobiles is a must-see in these two different spreads. GoSee : lehner-motoren.de & we-shoot-it.com

The CUPRA Formentor – the perfect crossover SUV with a distinctive design is the first independent model of the CUPRA brand. The creative duo from WE! shoot it, Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, were commissioned by Cupra Germany to stage the new Formentor together with business philosopher and game changer Anders Indset.
Anders Indset is among the leading business philosophers in the world and is considered a trusted sparring partner for international CEOs and leading politicians. Celebrated by the media as ‘Rock’n’Roll Plato’ for his approaches to practical philosophy, he is now one of the most sought-after keynote speakers in Europe. “Our executives of today need the philosophy of yesterday paired with the science and the technology of tomorrow,” is the credo of the Norwegian publisher and entrepreneur.
The first drivable prototype of the Cupra Formentor was photographed in Frankfurt, when the sun was still standing low on the wintery horizon and casting long shadows. The honest and authentic editorial spread for the social media channels of CUPRA and RAMP magazine was photographed by the two in parallel, resulting in many different perspectives.
CUPRA on the shoot : “Creativity and knowledge-gone-wild are the pioneers of the 21st century – the driving force. Philosophy is there to support the process. Rough edges can and should be emphasized instead of always going with the flow. Precisely what the CUPRA Formentor demonstrates with its design language. And in an extremely striking way. So self-confident.”
Photographer duo WE! shoot it, aka THOMAS VON SALOMON & MICHAEL COMPENSIS, represented by KELLY KELLERHOFF, didn’t want to leave post to others either : Their modern look goes to show once again that international spreads can be staged in the middle of Germany. GoSee : cupraofficial.de///formentor
