TM_vita Thomas Motta started working as a photographer of industrial facilities in 1996. For six years he travelled to places all over Europe, Asia and South America, shooting for clients in the steel industry. To focus more on what he was always passionate about, he moved to hamburg, where he assister well-known photographers in automotive and people photography until 2007. All of these experiences gave his minimalistic, reduced, natural style the fine-tuning it has today. His photographs are often "one-shots" without composing. Thomas prefers fast cars in their "natural environment", so whenever possible, he shoots them car-to-car. Additionally, he makes spontaneous handheld shots, which you don't find very often in todays commercial automobile photography. Thomas also has the experience and knowledge needed to translate his style to a virtual car during a cgi shoot. clients: ADAC, Blohm+Voss, BMW, Condé Nast, Ferrari, GQ, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Opel, Porsche, Skoda, Thyssen Krupp, Viseon, Volvo, VW.
