René Staud

opened his first studio in Stuttgart in 1975. His big break came with the success of the development of his Magicflash®, a lighting system that complemented the creative needs of sophisticated studio photography.

Due to this innovative surface illuminating technology he was quickly able to enter the world of automotive photography. Moreover, this lighting system soon convinced the experts and enabled him to receive numerous photographic assignments from renowned car manufacturers, first in the studio then on location. Since then René Staud is constantly challenging himself and his team to deliver the highest creative standards and services in the industry.

Today, with more than 35 years of experience in advertising photography, René Staud is active in all areas of automotive photography. In this challenging and demanding environment, he is still seen as one of the most progressive innovators.

The client base includes many major automotive manufacturers, whose international awareness was also shaped by his pictures.
