MICHAEL INDRESANO NAMED MEDICINE MAN OF THE YEAR 2019

Indresano Studios is proud to announce that Medicine Wheel has named Michael Indresano as the 2019 Medicine Man of the Year.

Michael served on the board of Medicine Wheel for 6 years, eventually being voted in as the chairman of the board.

PINE STREET INN VIDEO

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Pine Street Inn, one of Boston’s largest providers of shelter and support for the city’s homeless population. In recognition of this milestone, and to give back to the community, we here at Indresano Studios have embarked on a documentary project with the Pine Street Inn in an effort to highlight the important work the Pine Street Inn provides to the city of Boston. The goals of this project are to give voice to Boston’s homeless community and to spread awareness of the resources still needed to support and re-house the city’s homeless population.

The team’s first objective was to collect stories. The most effective way to dehumanize the issue of homelessness is to spread personal stories, experiences, and words.

The Indresano Studios team strategizes how to best capture these personal stories

Our team had the opportunity to interview three homeless men, John, Ray, and Jamil, on the first day of the shoot. In the interviews, our team learned details about each man’s past that led them to homelessness, their struggles to find housing and their hopes and goals for the future.

The team’s 4th interview of the day was with Nelson, the director of the Pine Street Inn’s Outreach Program. The Pine Street Inn has multiple vans traveling Boston 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to help bring the Pine Street Inn’s support to people in need, rather than leaving them on their own to secure transportation to the shelter.

Our team also had the distinct privilege of accompanying the outreach team on a particularly snowy night. Members of the outreach team supplied blankets, hot food, and other forms of support to members of Boston’s homeless community.

As this project progresses, we hope to bring further updates to our readers. For now, it’s back to work on the Pine Street Inn’s 50th anniversary video!

WARDROBES & WINDEX: MY FIRST WEEK AS AN INTERN

“Cream or sugar?” It’s the clich√©d but fail-proof question lurking in the back of my mind on Day 1¬†of any internship. Somehow my social awkwardness didn’t scare away the interviewers, and the¬†much-anticipated¬†first day leaves my mind spinning.¬†Will it be super corporate? Will the rest of the team like me? Will I learn about the industry or practice my barista skills? “Point me to the Keurig,” I think, just to be on the safe side.

I am so grateful to say those anxieties evaporated the second I entered Michael Indresano Photography. The studio is stunning. It’s modern and sophisticated yet fun and energetic.¬†Early 2000s R&B blasts on the radio all day. Oh, did I mention there’s a dog? Take a look at the majestic Sofia who keeps us company:

Just when I thought things couldn’t get better, Michael let us know we would be having a shoot later in the week for a company specializing in beauty products.¬†Check out some behind the scenes moments as I took in all this incredible first week had to offer:

The Set

Rule #1: Windex is your friend. We got right to work preparing for the shoot by making sure the studio was spotless and the equipment was ready to go. Shoutout to Abby for teaching me how to test the camera and set up the lights.

The Wardrobe

Hangers galore! I was stunned to see how many clothing options arrived at the studio for the shoot.

The Crew

A shoot is nothing without a dedicated crew. Here we have our insanely talented hair stylist Paula, wardrobe specialist Coleen, and makeup artist Jennifer. It was so great working with this detail-oriented team!

The Models

Not only were they beautiful, but the models are some of the most genuinely friendly people I’ve met.¬†Here are some shots of Lauren, Anna, and Anais as the shoot got underway.

The Favorite

Last but not least, here’s one of my favorite behind-the-scenes shots from the day. Check out the beautiful flares that the lighting cast on our bold model Anais.

As you can see, I’d say it was a pretty amazing first week all in all. Thank you so much to Michael for the incredible internship opportunity. I can’t wait to see what else upcoming weeks have in store!

A LOOK BEHIND “THE SCENE”: PHOTOSHOOT WITH NEW ENGLAND PATRIOT, DANNY AMENDOLA

While the final images are now published in a series in Scene magazine, we wanted to give you a look behind the ‘Scene’:
