We were so excited to discover we were honored at the 57th Annual Hatch Awards the that we just had to share! The video, Transformative Appetite, won bronze for the Digital: Video Long Form Single Entry.

It was a very exciting collaboration between our studio and the MIT Media Lab team. After a week of shooting in our studio well as on location, countless hours of editing and color grading, and the production of custom music and sound effects, we couldn’t be happier with the results!

Check out the final video below:

(As well as some bonus still shots from the shoot as well!)

We had a blast handling all aspects of pre-production, shooting, editing, and producing the final video showcasing the magnificent Seapoint Estate!

A special thank you to Robert Kinlin for his kind words and a big congratulations on the successful sale of the magnificent Seapoint Estate! We are so grateful to have gotten to handle the video production for this project.

“Michael Indresano’s reputation for quality, perfection, and excellence made him the ideal person for this job. Only someone of his caliber could capture the fine craftsmanship, high quality, and sheer beauty of the Seapoint Estate. The video the Indresano team produced played an important role in displaying the magnificent  Estate. It was a pleasure working with Michael and his team.”                                -Robert Kinlin, Owner and Founder of Robert Paul Properties

Not only did we handle the shooting – including using drones for overhead shots – but we also took care of wardrobe, hair, makeup, casting, audio, lighting, and so much more. You name it, we did it! Here is a glimpse behind the scenes of this video production.

Our drone helped capture a breathtaking view of Sherry Spinale from Maggie Inc. running through the estate’s gorgeous green yard.

Of course we had to snap a quick picture of the amazing views. The sunsets at Seapoint Estate are unparalleled! It is the ideal location for a video production team.

We are so grateful to have been given the opportunity to produce a video of this incredible property. Check it out below!


Welcome to our newly renovated prop room! With a space the size of a small studio apartment- 18 x 24 ft (432 sq. ft)- we have plenty of room for our huge collection of props 🙂 What more could a food photographer want?

We’ve updated and organized our large plate selection to accommodate any food imaginable. For a studio that loves food photography as much as we do, this prop room is a dream come true.

Ice cream bowl? Check. Soup bowl? Check. Coin bowl? Check. You name it, we’ve got the right bowl for you. It’s truly an oasis for a food photographer :p

We created an efficient system to arrange our platters, dishes, vases, mason jars, glasses, silveware, and so much more. Clients can see and access what we have available by simply visiting the prop room- in person or digitally!

Color coded and perfectly folded fabrics make us happy 🙂 Our newly updated system lets clients find what they need quickly and effortlessly. We’ve digitally archived all of our props so clients can pick exactly what they want before even coming to the studio!

Beautiful china such as these deserves a nice place to call home and we are happy to have built it.

With all these dishes, we might need to have a dinner party soon :p

We also have wooden surfaces, metal surfaces, all kinds of background options, and many more props not seen here. With all these props, we can create any set imaginable!

If you have any questions about what we have in stock, please give us a call and we’d be happy to send over some images of our extended collection.


We always love a client that comes to us with a new approach, and this Limited Release Timberland photography and video shoot was exactly that. What better way to showcase a purple boot than with beautiful photo smoke!

When shooting photo and video with colored smoke, it’s important to be in a well ventilated area. And what’s more ventilated than shooting outside! We built our own little set right in our parking lot, which certainly had heads turing on the sidewalk.

While overcast skies can be great for lighting, the Sony camera is not a fan of the possible rain that comes along with it. Fortunately, our team created the perfect umbrella attachment to keep the Sony dry and happy!

The team worked with the shifting winds in order to capture the perfect shot of the smoke engulfing the boot. We ended up with some truly amazing images and video clips.

Close up, you can see the colors blending right at the point of ignition before billowing out in the wind. The saturation and movement of the smoke amazed us, it was almost like ink in water!

To help balance out some of the red in the smoke, we counteracted it with a blue light, leading to the perfect shade of purple.

After covering the block in a faint purple haze, it was time to edit! The goal was a seamlessly looped video, and our client was impressed with what we put together. Check it out below!


We recently worked on a new campaign of images and GIFs, and we knew immediately we were in for an exciting time at the studio. With two sets for a photo and video shoot, seven models and stylists, it was a packed house full of fun! Check out more below.

We started the morning off right with the energetic Courtland. With so many different models coming in overlapping times throughout the day, it was great to start the day on a high note.

When having both a photography and video shoot in a day, you need to streamline everything as much as possible. We worked seamlessly with our team to get both a photography and green screen video set in side by side.

Hair and makeup artist Alexandra from TEAM helped make sure Gabi, the model, was looking her best on both sets!

Hiding behind the racks, you can see a glimpse our wardrobe/prop stylist Coleen, also from TEAM, hard at work. She shopped for all seven models and the different props needed for the shoot- talk about shopping ’til you drop!

The high energy start to the shoot continued throughout the entire day . Just look at this excitement! It’s safe to say we had a totally awesome day with Total Wireless!


Our team always enjoys a chance to capture things from a new angle, and a recent photography and videography project for Mimecast was just the opportunity!

Our client’s aim was to capture models in a moment of ‘falling’ in to a vortex, and we think these models nailed it!

The shoot certainly required a lot of core strength from our models. To help a little, we rigged a second stool as a smaller backrest. When you have to be filmed leaning back for minutes at a time, a little support can go a long way!

Our models still got a good ab workout during this shoot!

Thanks to our video monitor, we were able to catch wardrobe stylist Coleen and hair and make up artist Maryelle in action from a whole new vantage point!

Our photo assistant Abby couldn’t help but have some fun while testing out our set!

After wrapping on a successful and fun day of video and photography, we all wanted to see if we could have been models for the shoot. What do you think?

Check out one of the final videos below!



Earlier this year we worked with New Balance to photograph their new line of running shoes. Take a look behind the scenes of all the components that go into getting the sneakers to look just right!

In order to hit the ground running, all the different styles and colors had to be lined up in order and ready to be prepped! With so many exciting colors, it was hard to pick a favorite.


Gina, our shoe prepper, made sure all the shoes looked camera ready. No detail was left unnoticed!


She’s so focused even Sophia can’t distract her, much to Sophia’s dismay!


Getting the shoe to have the right angle and pressure can be challenging. It takes a lot of maneuvering and a few tricks to get everything just right!

Michael checks every shot and compares all the small adjustments made to make sure that no bend of the shoe or lace is out of place! As Michael would say “It’s not final unless it’s perfect”


The final images were added into graphic for two page ads in magazines.

Run out and get your pair now!

The Video Shoot:

It takes 90% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to manufacture a new one. That same amount of energy is enough to power a television for 3 hours. Also, only 27% of newspapers in the US are recycled. We would save 1 quarter of a billion trees a year if we recycled all newspapers. And, 14,000,000,000 pounds of garbage is tossed into the ocean a year, killing at least 1 million creatures.


This year, more than 192 countries, totaling over 1 billion people, came together to celebrate Earth Day to try and change these statistics.

Earth Day Social Media Post

The inspiration for our Earth Day shoot came from the idea that one small action (or drop) can create a ripple effect.

The Rig

Using magic arms, we were able to get the baster we used to create the drops, in perfect position for continuous drops, giving us lots of options to work with.

Using magic arms, we were able to get the baster we used to create the drops, in perfect position for continuous drops, giving us lots of options to work with, and eventually giving us the perfect shot for our Earth Day post.

Using our new Profoto lights with our Laser System, we were able to sync our lights to our new Hasselblad H6d-100c camera to capture the water drop right after it hit the surface of the water, freezing the splash and capturing the drop in mid air.

The water drop interrupts the laser beam firing  the strobe lights and camera simultaneously, getting the perfect shot every time.

A drop just before it hits the laser. The Profoto D2's capture the splash with no motion blur, freezing the drop in mid-air. The drop suspended in air reflects the map behind it.

We placed a world map behind the set to create a reflection resembling a globe in the drop in order to capture as much in camera as possible.


After getting the perfect splash image, the team needed a solution for a larger drop. Leave it to Michael to have exactly what was needed.

To get a perfect shot of the globe like reflection, the team used a custom made acrylic drop.

Using a glass drop composited into the final shot, we get the perfect reflection of the world map behind it. The New Profoto D2's light up the set.
