I met Sergio years back when I just started shooting for ADV1 back in 2010, they asked me to shoot his SLK55 AMG. Ever since then we’ve kept in contact and I’ve shot some his other cars over the years.
Skip to this year, I came across Sergio’s Instagram account, @AiMotorsports, and saw that he had picked up a Porsche 918 Spyder. I reached out to him and mentioned that I wanted to shoot his 918. He liked the idea and decided that we could shoot his fleet of cars but focus on the 918.
I have been trying to shoot a 918 for some time, but something always came up and I never got around to shooting one. So I made sure that I did everything possible on my end to guarantee this shoot took place.
The photoshoot was held at Sergio’s place, where his stable of cars included the Porsche 918, Turbo S, Maserati Gran Turismo, Lamborghini Huracan, Super Leggera, Ferrari 458 Speciale and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, which, to me, is like my dream collection.
My goal for this shoot was to get some great group shots. So, I brought out my Nikon D800 and used the Nikon 24-70 lens. It was the ideal lens to capture some great group shots.
We began shooting at around 8 am and thankfully it was a gorgeous day to shoot; the lighting conditions were ideal. Peter, my assistant that day, helped me with the ladder and tripod set up to get those high group shots. While I was shooting, Sergio brought out his drone and got some great video of the photoshoot taking place. Overall it was a great time shooting these exotics.
While wrapping up the photoshoot, Sergio also mentioned that he has four additional cars coming in very soon, which I will have the exclusive once they come in. So until that next photoshoot takes place, take a look at these shots of his Multi-Million Dollar Fleet.
