When it comes to beautiful landscapes, Oman never fails to deliver. And similarly, when it comes to beauty on wheels, nor does the Bentley GT. We had three days to create a set of regional images for Bentley’s latest model, the 521 bhp Bentley GT V8 S, three days to work magic with this stunning car.
I’ve been commissioned by Bentley a number of times and it’s always proved to be sheer, exhilarating visual excitement. As it panned out, it was a pretty high performance gig, involving a fancy hotel, stunning road and these luxury wheels. I could get used to this… Bentley lifestyle!
What’s it like working for a conservative British brand, you may wonder? Simple, just pick up the camera and get to work. Do a bit of homework in advance but don’t get to hung up on it. Well, that’s my way anyway. I introduced lots of motion in the imagery, shot handheld, with little to no post-production editing. Bringing in Oman’s iconic landscape was key, simply because there are few other places in the Middle East featuring this sort of terrain.
So the work was great. And the results? Same. Pretty pleasing to the eye, wouldn’t you say?
