It seems like every time I open Instagram, I see some incredible photo of a Lamborghini in some luxurious building or next to mountains straight out of a movie. This may be because I follow people like Pepper Yandell who travel the world photographing the most extraordinary cars in the most extraordinary places. This video documents Pepper’s latest excursion to the UAE to experience Dubai’s rich car culture.
A year ago, I met Pepper at a photoshoot we did for Chevrolet Performance. I had seen his photos prior and expected a giant bag full of lighting equipment and multiple cameras. When we got to the first shoot spot, I was disappointed to see that he was shooting with the same camera and lens as me and only one ProFoto B1. I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong to not create the breathtaking images he did. Something about his process blows away most photographers in the business and creates true beauty. This trip to Dubai is simply a showcase of his talent.
When Pepper first started getting shared on big Instagram pages such as @black_list, he started gaining a following. Since then, he’s gained international attention, which led to this trip to Dubai. On this trip, he got the chance to drive a LaFerrari, Porsche 918, GT2 and other incredible cars. Supercars Club Arabia brought him along for the Omanya Rally, which took them to the world renowned Yas Marina Circuit.
From an $80,000 a night hotel room to driving million dollar hypercars, Pepper took the ultimate tour of Dubai. Instagram is filled with luxury pictures, but Pepper takes us behind the scenes to show us that it is no joke. The United Arab Emirates is a truly spectacular place with incredible cars at every corner. He wants to thank Mark Payne and Bjoern for helping make this video a reality.
