had the pleasure of photographing the stunning Lincoln Nautilus, a blue beauty, set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Hajar Mountains. This project was particularly exciting due to the loose brief, which allowed for spontaneous creativity and on-the-fly shooting. The resulting images were later featured on Lincoln’s digital and social platforms, showcasing the vehicle’s elegance and the majestic scenery.

The Setting

The Hajar Mountains provided an awe-inspiring backdrop for this photoshoot. Known for their rugged terrain and dramatic landscapes, these mountains offered the perfect setting to highlight the Lincoln Nautilus’s sophisticated design and adventurous spirit. The natural light and varying textures of the landscape played a crucial role in enhancing the visual appeal of the shots.

On-the-Fly Creativity

With a loose brief, I had the freedom to experiment and capture the essence of the Lincoln Nautilus in a way that felt organic and true to the moment. This flexibility allowed me to explore different angles, compositions, and lighting scenarios, resulting in a diverse set of images that highlight the vehicle’s elegance and versatility.

Key Shots

  • Hero Shot: The main shot features the Lincoln Nautilus in all its glory, set against the sweeping vistas of the Hajar Mountains. The contrast between the vehicle’s sleek blue finish and the rugged, earthy tones of the mountains creates a striking visual.
  • Close-Ups: Detailed shots of the Nautilus’s design elements, such as the grille, headlights, and wheels, emphasize the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Lincoln is known for.
  • Action Shots: Capturing the Nautilus in motion, these shots convey a sense of power and capability, perfect for Lincoln’s dynamic branding.

Post-Production Magic

Post-production played a vital role in refining these images. By enhancing the natural colors and textures, I was able to bring out the best in both the vehicle and the landscape. The goal was to maintain a balance between realism and visual impact, ensuring the final images were both authentic and captivating.

Featuring on Lincoln’s Platforms

Seeing these photographs featured on Lincoln’s digital and social platforms was immensely gratifying. The images not only showcased the Nautilus’s design and performance but also highlighted the brand’s commitment to elegance and adventure. The feedback from Lincoln and the audience was overwhelmingly positive, reinforcing the success of the shoot.


This project was a testament to the power of spontaneous creativity and the beauty of natural landscapes.
