One week with a Ford Focus ST

Ford Focus ST Stealth 07

I love cars and I especially love Ford Motor Company South Africa as a brand because not only are they on top form when it comes to their social game, but they are constantly releasing new vehicles, like the Ford Focus ST that I was sent for a week to drive and photograph.

When the cars are sent to me, I never know what colour they are coming in until they arrive, so when the Ford Focus ST arrived in their own colour, Stealth, I couldn’t have been happier!

Shooting the car was a challenge as Stealth does not pop as much as their Tangarine Scream or Race Red colours, but I am always up for a challenge and it didn’t take Carlinn and I long to find our angle for the theme we would shoot this stunning car in.

The theme for the Stealth Ford Focus ST was to incorporate Street Style fashion and graffiti, so off to Woodstock we went in search of some awesome art to make this car pop.

First up we found a bicycle shop that has some rad road bikes on the walls around their building. The lines from the art combined with an idea by Carlinn to clone me into the shots worked really well!

Our second spot was a little tighter because we were in an extremely narrow one way street with some interesting characters walking around eyeing out my gear, so the shoot lasted about 5 minutes before we decided to pack up and leave!

This graffiti was pretty cool though and the colours on the wall enhanced the lines of the Ford Focus ST, making it look slick and sexy!

We had the car for a week, so we also drove it out to Franschhoek for our 13 year anniversary and places we visited were the damn wall just outside of town, Babylonstoren for lunch, Dutch East for dinner and a night at the luxurious Le Franschhoek Hotel.

The Ford Focus ST drives like a dream, has instant power and an interior as sexy as its exterior with features like the touchscreen display that has Sync 3.0 on it! Did you know, you can upload your own wallpaper onto the home screen of the display, so I uploaded this shot for the next person who would be taking this car over from me.

Thanks again to Ford South Africa for another epic vehicle that we got to test out!
