A few months back, I had the opportunity to photograph Volkswagen’s new Beetle Dune. Along with the COTU crew, we shot video and photos from Beatty Nevada east to Valley of Fire National Park. We then headed south through Kelso Dunes, Joshua Tree national park and wrapped things up in Palm Springs California. Chris Stahl from Volkswagen North America was with us every step of the way- through flash floods, the toxic chemical fires in Beatty Nevada, late nights and early early mornings, and all the constant cleaning of the Dune Beetles’. We also had a the opportunity to meet the Desert Dingo Racing team. Not only did they bring their 1969 Baja bug for us to shoot, but they also brought a ton of great stories to share. But those stories are meant to be told in person and over a few cold ones.
Here is a special Directors cut of the reveal video.
