Pictures Worth 1000 Words
Recently I got the opportunity to take a customer’s car out for a photo shoot. This is something we do from time to time because we love to share the great results we get with our products with people. It was a welcome reprieve from my day to day schedule, and the icing on the cake was that it meant I got to drive around a Mercedes CLS500 AMG all morning. That thing is beast. But best of all it meant that we got some great shots in some really cool areas of the city to share with you…
We’re located in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, so that affords us a ton of opportunity for great urban scenery for shoots like these. First stop was a nearby parking garage so I could get some photos with the skyline in the background. It was completely empty so I had run of the place, which was nice.
After that it became a bit trickier because I wanted some shots in a busier atmosphere. There’s a huge industrial area just south of us with some really cool warehouses. Only problem was it was the middle of a work day, which meant I didn’t have the luxury of time on my side. I was getting some strange looks from scrap pickers and cement truck drivers, and I was asked to leave the area more than once. I guess it’s not often that a guy pulls up with a Mercedes, jumps out, and takes a couple pictures before jumping back in and taking off. Oh well.
Anyway, the car looked great, and I was able to get some good shots in before coming back to headquarters. Check out the gallery below, or take a look at our Flickr page for the full set. Hope you enjoy, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
