ROD SOX’S DUSTIN PEDROIA VISITS INDRESANO PHOTOGRAPHY

At times we have to venture out of the studio-
it’s a good thing Michael owns this warehouse space.
It takes a lot of set-up for this kind of shoot, but the crew enjoys the challenge.

Intern Robyn Maguire earns her keep making that car shine, while Digital Tech Rob Coshow “supervises” (a.k.a. slacks off).

 

A behind-the-scenes peek at how Michael perfects his acclaimed lighting.
Chevy Dealership Owner, Gary Beard,
takes a shot of his Camaro for the last time.

 

Rob inspects the set-up while Greg stands in for Dustin.

 

Dustin’s arrival.

 

Pedroia gets ready for a quick outfit change, with assistance from WEEI‘s, Emily Starr and Melissa Capuano.

 

Handing over the keys: The Camaro is Dustin’s for the summer, then one lucky winner gets to keep it!

Lunchpail Production‘s Videographer, Jason Jenkins, covered the shoot.

SHOOTING IN THE CHILL ZONE

Dreaming of Summer with flip-flops and frozen drinks!

 

Producer Michele says “Michael get that shot before it melts! “.

Studio intern Robyn in the wings to help with damage control: real ice, real water!

“Keep can upright”? When all else fails, bypass the warning label on the “Dust Off” for frosting up the ice.

ZONA – “AN AVEDA CONCEPT SALON”

We created 3 posters for Zona Hair Salon, conceived by
Creative Director Tim Needham.
The hair styles were designed to relate to the hand held props, inspired by Aveda‘s focus on natural ingredients and care for the environment.
“Beautiful on the inside and outside – Inspired Naturally”

Zona recruited Katie O’Connor, one of their clients, for the shoot, pictured with Janessa, make-up artist from Aveda.
