CLASSIC CARS IIAbout this photograph
The photographer founded his own company, the René Staud Studios Corporation in 1980, immediately becoming one of the leading automotive photographers in Germany. He developed his own system of adapted lighting known as ?Magicflash" for automotive photography, a system operating with the aid of powerful light reflectors that distribute the light in a homogenous and atmospheric way. Progressively adapting the technique to digital, he decided to equip his studio with specific automotive shooting equipment in order to prepare the vehicles and showcase them for the many advertising campaigns he undertakes. René Staud is also the author of over one hundred photographs of vintage cars of which this print is one of the finest examples.Read more Read less

Born in Stuttgart in 1951, RenÃ© Staud has worked as a photographer for several decades. Since the age of 12, he has been fascinated by this practice that allows him to capture the exterior world as it appears to him. He thus excelled in the subject early on and quickly obtained a number of photography awards, which led to his decision at the tender age of 16 to create his own photo laboratory. Having worked originally as a portrait, fashion, and architecture photographer, RenÃ© Staud was able to brilliantly adapt his practice to shooting vintage cars. His desire to produce original works quickly enabled him to become one of the key automotive photographers in Germany, collaborating with some of the biggest brands in the industry such as Mercedes, Porsche, or Aston Martin. While he was thus able to forge a reputation as a master of studio photography, he also distinguished himself through his images of vehicles shot amidst breathtaking scenery.
