100 images in 5 weeks. 7 global locations.My first poolshoot. As long as I´m usally producing one ad image per day it was quit an experience to shoot almost 10 images per day. With our more reportage kind of approach it was pretty easy and a lot of fun for me to work with all these different kind of people. The project took us to China, Sweden, India and Austria. I was amazed by the piecefulness and serenity of the Indians. The ambition of the Chinese and the beauty of Sweden. It was nice to see employees, which all work under the same human and friendly conditions.Thank´s Lina for the great experience...

For AMW BBDO in London we produced 9 pictures in several countries and continents.
Finding locations which instantly tell you the city and which kind of match together was pretty challenging.
Even if I always try to find a perspective which is closer to the catering,I mostly end up in a man lift, or a helicopter.Whenever I go up the landscape szenery open up,get layers and just look a little different.And the Best of all.It provides a unique,never seen before perspective.
Thank´s to Marty Amsler for choosing me for the project and spending so much time with me in the gondola.And Thank´s to Dan Halprin for his excellent production service
