ALPA of Switzerland - Manufacturers of remarkable cameras
Apr 24, 2011

Once upon a night...

Before the car launch in Valencia the official shooting of the new Sauber C30 formula 1 took place during the night 28/29th January in Hinwil/Switzerland. Jean-Jacques Ruchti as long term commissioned photographer for Sauber asked us to take part in the 13 hrs shooting at the Sauber construction site. Due to the movie production that was going on before we had to wait till 5 a.m. until the new car got rolled in... and the clock ticked as noon was the deadline for the cars departure to Valencia.

Jean-Jacques was using his ALPA 12 XY and SWA for some of the main shots of the racing car together with his Leaf Aptus-II 10 in AFi mount (the swiveling screen is ideal for low position shots). The pictures get used for press and official media, website... also the autograph cards of the pilots got shot with ALPA cameras later in Valencia.
