Especially the interest for Briese Lights (www.brieselichttechnik.de) has increased steadily. It is obvious, that photographers pay more attention to the Focus Module System © which offers a wider range of opportunities in using advanced light shaping tools. Further we have lots of interest for our new iWorkcase Product and brand new Lithium Batteries from Profoto (www.profoto.se) Here a selection of our supported clients in autumn just for the Iberian peninsula:

A warm welcome to master of photography Albert Watson (www.albertwatson.net) in Spain. His new photo campaign for Macallan Whisky led him to the beautiful landscape of Andalusian town Jerez and to the northern region Santander. Due to our extensive network of branch offices, it has not been a big deal to deliver required light material to any shooting spot on the Iberian Peninsula. In cooperation with our ProductionPool partner we could fulfil all his needs. In the end of the day Mr. Watson had found the art of photography that he was looking for. “The light conditions have been terrific” he said. Cheers Mr. Watson.

To capture attributes of a fragrance into a photo is complicated, but there are few photographers who are able to achieve that. One of them: star photograph Juergen Teller, who rented lighting equipment at our SPOT Office Marbella recently for his new work Daisy Perfume by Marc Jacobs. A full production service from our Production Pool partner guranteed a successful realisation.
In March SPOT realized in cooperation with Calvert Studios Spain an outdoor daylight car shooting for our client MASERATI. Embedded in a beautiful landscape SPOT MARBELLA provided lighting material like Profoto 7 B2 and Bowens Wind Maschines. Or better said: Gone with the wind…
Triple F is wonderful – Formula one, Fashion and Foto. Our SPOT OFFICE MARBELLA realized a fashion shooting in cooperation with photographer MICHEL COMTE and PRODUCTION COMPANY FOTO FILM VIDEO. None other than seven time world champion MICHAEL SCHUMACHER glamourized during the shooting as a perfect match. Our result? Professionalism needs professional equipment. SPOT is your strong partner, wherever you are.
