MEDICINE WHEEL – HAND IN HAND 2019 WITH BOSTON POLICE COMMISSIONER WILLIAM GROSS

The Indresano Studios team has partnered up with Medicine Wheel Productions to host Medicine Wheel’s “Hand in Hand” event, which aims to bridge the culture gap between some of Boston’s at-risk youth and the Boston Police Department. It is a full day of bonding activities, eventually culminating in a photoshoot at Indresano Studios!

In addition to hosting the photo shoot, the Indresano team is producing a short video for Medicine Wheel’s promotional purposes.

Hand In Hand brings together Boston Police officers and young adults, most of whom have had negative experiences with police in the past, to try to understand and accept their differences by embracing their similarities; namely their humanity, and common experience.

Medicine Wheel Hand in Hand – Hand Casting

Before the workshop began, our team interviewed a few of the young adults, as well as Medicine Wheel Director Michael Dowling and Director of Public Art and Advocacy Richard Dinsmore to learn a little more about what this program is and how it has helped the two communities become closer together.

Each young adult is paired with an officer, then the workshop begins with a meditation period. Following this, each participant writes an “I Am” poem about identity.

Partners then create a mold of their clasped hands, which is later turned into a bronzed cast. These hand-in-hand statues are then displayed at Medicine Wheel, and at any events that Medicine Wheel hosts.

After a short dinner, participants then head to Indresano Studios to get their portraits taken.

SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY WITH NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ALL STAR JAMES WHITE

With the AFC Championship coming up, New England Patriots fans STILL can’t get over the Superbowl LI win, and it’s all thanks to James White’s OT touchdown. Earlier this season we had him in the studio for a portrait photshoot for one of his charity causes off the field.

James White is transitioning to take over the Mayo Bowl from retired Patriots player and defensive captain, Jerod Mayo. And what do you need to host a charity event? If you guessed some great new sports photography to promote the event, you’re right!

Check out a video sneak-peek behind the scenes of the shoot below.

Patriots player James White was a natural on set, and gave us a bunch of great images to chose from. See some of them below:

BEST PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY OF 2017

With the start of 2018, we looked back on a year full of challenging photography and videography projects, exciting clients, and big changes at the studio! Check out some of the highlights of the last year below:

The year started off with a photoshoot – Baby Michael’s first time on set! During our annual Indresano’s Angels shoot, we were fortunate to have our own ‘Charlie’ for the day, although we think ours was a little cuter. 🙂

Then it was time for some deja vu: we were back in San Diego to conduct a video interview of new international executives for a corporate video series. Our crew did a quick turnaround and was only on the ground for 36 hours, but that didn’t stop them from seeing the sights and getting in a little local fun!

With the crew back to the cold New England, we had a client who was keeping it hot in the studio with a model photoshoot! Hair product company Toni & Guy came to the studio for a glamorous beauty shoot. In addition to the final shots of fun new hairstyles, we also captured some tutorial photographs of how to get the same look.

It wouldn’t be a year in review if we didn’t mention the amazing Superbowl LI win for the Patriots! We were excited to photograph two New England Patriot all-stars in the studio this year- running back James White and tight end Rob Gronkowski. Check out some images and behind the scenes videos below!

This year also included some fun videography projects, including one for a new DuoClean vacuum. We worked to capture the high end, sleek side of a product that people often overlook as simply utilitarian.

Some of our video productions also took the team on location, such as the 2-day video shoot we did in a gym to showcase Nike. We worked with a highly athletic model to help capture a gritty and intense final video.

We also had a new exciting addition to our photography team this year- our Hasselblad H6D 100C! It gives us files twice the size of other leading cameras, a much faster shutter speed, and 4K video capabilities.

The team was very honored to win a Black and White Spider Award for our photography and a Hatch Award from the Ad Club for our videography. Below is the Hasselblad image that won for the Black and White Spider Award.

And below is the video we made with MIT Tangible Media which won a Hatch Award in 2017.

We also had several opportunities to drive some high-end cars into the studio. First up was a Range Rover in order to capture a sleek and detail oriented video showcasing the car. Next up was a Volvo XC90 Excellence Edition. We used the luxury car to showcase a new software design which creates a proactive suspension that eliminates motion in the car. The images from that shoot are coming in a blog soon, so keep an eye out!

A big project we undertook this year was converting our storage room into a highly organized prop closet. We went through all the props we collected over the years and logged them in a digital portfolio. We also created a numbering system so that we will be able to find any prop needed instantly. The result is a food photographer’s dream come true!

Michael Indresano Photography is a full service commercial photography studio in South Boston, Massachusetts. We offer a full suite of creative services ranging from pre-production to post-production.

This past year, the team had a chance to capture some shoe photography as well as make some videos. For instance, this fall we collaborated with Timberland on an exciting project, where we used photo smoke and our Sony F5 to create a social media campaign for their Limited Release boot.

We also worked with New Balance to create a dynamic photography campaign in magazines and other printed publications.

It wouldn’t be an annual review of all our work if we didn’t mention some of our food photography! We teamed up with Improper Bostonian and the talented food stylist John Carafoli to capture the cover photo for their pasta issue. Check out the final result below!

With a year as full as this one, we can’t wait for all the new projects and changes that 2018 will bring. Make sure to stay tuned to our blog to get sneak peeks and behind the scenes access in the new year!

GRONK TIME: NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ROB GRONKOWSKI PHOTOSHOOT

As the football season kicked off, the Indresano team was excited to kick off a new project with New England Patriots Rob ‘Gronk’ Gronkowski for his latest brand partnership with Brookstone- the GronkBall!

If you’re sad you missed it, don’t worry! We captured some behind the scenes shots of the fun football filled day so you can relive it with us.

As usual, Michael was completely focused on getting the shot just right.

Even Rob Gronkowski needs a little wardrobe styling! Thankfully Coleen from TEAM Artists was on hand to make everything perfectly camera ready. 🙂

Gronk came prepared with many poses and was working the camera the whole shoot. Here’s a little sneak peak at one our personal favorite faces from the Patriots player!

Gronkowski screams summer ready in this shot. We would love to have a day at the beach with the fun and lovable Gronk!

As the team reviewed the shots, Patriots player Gronkowski just had to test his new product. Can you guess who Gronk was playing catch with on set?

If you guessed our Production Coordinator Shannon then you were correct! She couldn’t pass up the chance to play catch with the all-star New England Patriots tight end!

Still want more? Check out the behind the scenes video we put together below!
