IDM Photography LLC was tasked with photographing images for the 2015 Subaru WRX/STI product launch on location in Northern California. Over a 6 day stretch we shot more than 100 press photos of the STI in varying conditions and settings from the majestic scenery around the Monterey to full speed on the track at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Our instructions were to photograph the STI being driven aggressively on all types of terrain from county roads, to raceway tarmac, to gravel and dirt.
Subaru snatched the PR opportunity to also reveal their recently completed STI Nürburgring 24hr Challenge WRX/STI race car on the Leguna Seca track for testing the same week. In town for some testing of their own were Subaru Rally Pro drivers Bucky Lasek and David Higgins.
