The Challenge

Lilium has been developing the first electric vertical take-off and landing jet since 2015. I have been photographing for the company since 2018 primary on location. These include shots of the aircraft, people and production in a rapidly changing environment with a consistent visual language.

Shoot with 250 Lilium employees in a Hangar here in Munich

Photographing the Lilium crew from a lifting platform - having almost 280 employees in front of the camera is something special.

With so many people, everything has to happen very quickly and be well organized. Many hours of planning for a 30-minute shoot. I like to support my clients with the idea, concept and planning, and my background as a creative director helps me here. The images are used as brand images and serve as communication.

Bonus Challenge: Without a tripod but with a harness. Another reason why I love industrial photography so much - there are always new/different requirements.
