In 2017, the creative duo from WE! shoot it, Michael Compensis and Thomas von Salomon, launched a somewhat different self-advertisement campaign. Instead of shooting glossy cars, the two posed for the camera themselves this time. In a series of great in-your-face, humorous photos you won't forget all too soon, Thomas von Salomon and Michael Compensis slip into various roles with one thing in common: They are all about cars and, let's say, traffic.
The latter might well be a double entendre: With their “Whores” motif, Salomon and Compensis apparently offended even before the first publication: The advertising partner for the 18/1 posters refused to publish the wonderful motif just like that. He thought the motif was too risqué. Which is why since Mid-January only three motifs were hung as large-scale posters first in Hamburg and later in Frankfurt. Munich and Berlin are to follow.
As postcards with no less edgy wording, all four motifs are flying around the top agencies. We present the duo on GoSee along with a peep behind the scenes, of course, with all four motifs, plus the derrière of the postcards! They naturally look forward to portfolio inquiries from interested agencies, which have not yet postcards or are simply into extremely quick and highly professional traffic.
The concept was developed by the duo personally. Layout and typo were in the hands of Florian Stürmer from Die Stürmer. For copy, the two had, as WE! shoot it put it, “the great” Michael Brepohl. Styling came from Cornelia Heuser, and make-up or the light day make-up were done by Melina Johannsen.

The team from RAMP had a sporty task in hand for photographer duo Thomas von Salomon and Michael Compensis in the late fall. Awaiting them at the studio in Düsseldorf were two new Renault MEGANE GTs along with two professional athletes! To underscore the sporty side of the new MEGANE GT, the motifs were supposed to also show split-second sequences of sports routines next to the vehicles. With heavy use of material, the duo created and exceptional transportation & sport spread, which can be seen in RAMP #36 from 15 December. Post production was taken care of by Andreas Neuerer. Exclusively on GoSee, they present the first motifs and a look behind the scenes.

Thomas von Salomon and Michael Compensis, aka 'WE! SHOOT IT,' flew in the first half of 2016 for VOLKSWAGEN to the industrial capital Shanghai, where together with the Peking-based agency DMG-Media they staged the new VOLKSWAGEN Sagitar R-Line. Shortly thereafter, the duo took care of visualizing the GLI version, for which the vehicles were photographed in the Shanghai studio T.H.E.. Since time was short, the two started with the first post production steps themselves in parallel to the shoot so that the motifs and backgrounds only had to be finalized by T.H.E..
