Leica Q2 Monochrom commercial

Leica Q2 Monochrom ad with Siegfried Hansen

In November 2020, Siegfried Hansen and I worked on a short commercial video for Leica to promote the Leica Q2 Monochrom.
The concept was to showcase Siegfried's work done with the Q2 Monochrom complemented by his commentary and video footage of him using the new camera. Everything was filmed in our beautiful hometown Hamburg, which in my opinion is a great city to photograph in black & white. 
As a Leica fan and monochrom lover, this project was a great opportunity to challenge myself and film this project entirely in black & white (using a filter inside the camera) and focus on telling a story with nothing but greytones, light & shadow and music. Thank you Siegfried and Leica for the great opportunity. Below are some behind the scene photographs from the shoot. Enjoy!
