IT’S NEVER TOO COLD FOR ICE CREAM

As a Boston Food Photographer studio, it’s no surprise we like ICE CREAM around here! Just take a look through our website indresano.com and you will notice we are obsessed with ice cream! Some people love cat videos, we LOVE ice cream. We photograph ice cream, we video ice cream. If the sun were a ginormous scoop of tiramisu gelato we would be a sunflower basking in its delicious ice creamy rays. And we would take the ice cream on exciting adventures too. Like this recent project where we made cool melty looks from a few of our favorite flavors.

Nothing looks more tasty than melting vanilla ice cream.

We are such enthusiasts, we even create our own homemade vanilla bean ice cream!

EXPLOSIVE VIDEOGRAPHY AND PHOTOGRAPHY

We always love an adventure, and when we were preparing for a recent photo shoot and full video production, we know we had one! We were all blown away by the final product:

To go along with the video series, the client also wanted some photography work done. The goal was dramatic and sleek looking images to promote a health care leadership program. Check out some of the images from the series below!

Next up was the video, which required a lot of components working together in synch. We had to make custom props,  hire pyrotechnicians and  find the highest caliber slo-mo camera to make the shot look just right.

We started our day with the preparation: our pyrotechnician drilled into the back of the mercury staffs  in order to make room for the explosives.

Back inside, his son (and partner), was gluing in the detonation cord, or det cord for short. It might look like harmless laces or rope, but it packs some serious power!

The finished product was prepped for the shoot by being strung up in midair.

In order to capture all the details of the blast, we needed a camera with a very high frame per second, like the Phantom Flex shown below.

Explosions are messy; we had to make sure we protected the camera behind some plexy! Cleaning between takes definitely took some time but the final product was well worth it.

After the explosive shots, we needed some shots of the aftermath as well. After switching the Phantom to the dolly we were ready for action!

Before breaking down our explosive set, we couldn’t help but experiment with a few other products. Check out the video below!

BOSTON POLICE COMMISSIONER: LEADING BOSTON’S FINEST

Boston’s Finest needs a strong leader, and that’s exactly what Police Commissioner William B. Evans is. Our team recently had the opportunity to photograph the Commissioner for the cover of SCENE magazine.  Rather than photographing him in the studio, we wanted to showcase him out in the city he protects.

First thing was getting the set ready. We picked a location with a city skyline, and added in the police cars to set the mood.

Michael and the team worked quickly in the cold to get all the lighting and setup ready for when Commissioner Evans arrived.

When the Commissioner arrived, Michael and Bobby gave him a warm welcome before quickly diving into the details and getting the Commissioner groomed by our stylist Krystle Feher.

Michael went over the image inspiration with the Boston Police Commissioner before beginning the photoshoot to make sure that the mood was just right.

Commissioner Evans and a few of Boston’s Finest got into their places and received a few last minute pointers and tips from Michael before starting.

All that was left to do was to shoot! The team had to work quick to get the perfect image with the time that Commissioner Bill Evans had available in his busy schedule!

Everything went smoothly, and the image only needed a few lines of copy before gracing the cover of SCENE magazine!

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF ICE CREAM

It might be getting cold outside, but that won’t stop us from having fun with our favorite dessert: ice cream! Our team spent some time recently creating some very appetizing treats and showing them off in a lively way. Check it out below!

Scooping up ice cream for the whole studio!

With all these delicious treats tempting us, we had just as much fun eating it as we did shooting it!

TAKING THE NEXT STEP WITH NxSTAGE

Our recent project with NxStage for a home dialysis machine was a rewarding experience! We had a great opportunity to be part of a creative process that will benefit those that require kidney care. On casting day, over 60 people came in to audition for a few different roles. We hit the ground running on the shoot day by creating a set that really told the story and communicated the product message. The images represent the freedom of using home dialysis. Check out the tear sheets from the shoot below!

GOVERNOR CHARLIE BAKER LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR KARYN POLITO VISIT THE INDRESANO STUDIO

Things were quite exciting at the studio last week when the Governor Charlie Baker stopped by! Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito also made an appearance so Michael could photograph the two for the Spring cover of Scene Magazine. The Indresano team was honored to have both high-profile public officials take some time out of their busy schedules to visit the studio. State Troopers came to the studio the day prior to conduct a site survey and they also assessed the area twice during the day of the shoot to ensure everything was safe and ready for the Governor’s arrival! Check out some pictures from the shoot below as well as an exclusive behind the scenes video!

HONORING THE KENNEDY LEGACY

It was a big day in Boston today – President Barack Obama made a quick visit to Massachusetts to celebrate the opening of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. The institute is located on the UMass Boston campus, right next to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. President Obama and Joe Biden were among the distinguished guests honoring the late Kennedy’s legacy who passed away in 2009. Michael had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Senator Ted Kennedy back in 1995 right at the beginning of his photography career. See the photo and thank you letter Michael received from the Senator below!

WOULDN’T THIS BE A PERFECT WEEK TO BOOK A VACATION?

We’re wishing to be back in the warm weather after all the snow from that blizzard last week!  The picturesque river ways of Watertown Massachusetts got our attention when we scouted this location for a shoot with AAA. It provided the perfect backdrop for the concept of this ad campaign. As the Indresano team set up for the shoot, we encountered a few little web-footed surprises. Take a look!

RE-IMAGINING THE FEMALE FORM

Renaissance artists made paintings of her, Da Vinci and Michaelangelo evoked her from blocks of Carrara marble, photographers of the last 2 centuries captured her on film, musicians composed melodies about her, her beauty and form shown on the silver screen have dazzled audiences from around the world since the first movie reel was set in motion. She is the quintessential representation of biological perfection. Today, entire industries are developed that focus on providing care and health improvements for women. For our most recent project, Michael Indresano Photography has teamed up with an advanced medical imaging corporation who is the leader in defining the standard for women’s health on a journey of re-imagination.
