The cold and snow were too slow to leave Boston, and Indresano team was impatient for warmer weather! So they packed up their gear and went down to sunny San Diego for a video shoot.

Once the crew scouted out the best location, they got right down to business getting all the gear set and ready!

Our Production Coordinator Shannon filled in as the interviewee in order to adjust lighting and sound just right for the videos. But that didn’t stop her from working!

Notice anything about the window frames? Here’s a hint- it involved a lot of taping! We covered the black frames in white in order to create the perfect background for the shot

With everything all ready to go, our professional interviewer got everything underway.

It takes a great crew to film a strong interview!

After two days of prep and filming, our team had just enough time left in San Diego to visit the seals in La Jolla.

 Jayna and Shannon even managed to snag a ‘seal’fie with one of them!



Walking into the gym, we were greeted with huge, muscular men and women who helped us lift up our heavy video equipment onto their loading dock and into the gym. They made it look so easy! Tossing our bags and picking up our heavy cases as if they were as light as a feather.

Sony F5 Video Camera

After meeting Jeff, we set up to do some heavy lifting. We get tired from lifting our Sony F5 camera all day which weighs about 12 pounds, so when Jeff showed us his signature move: lifting a dumbbell with metal chains attached to it, he made us look like wimps!

Man Lifting Weights

Nike Fog Effect

Our goal for the video was to create a cool effect. With the right tools and techniques, we were able to give our video the misty, dark, and grungy look we were hoping for.

Nike Workout

After an intense day of working out, Jeff was getting so pumped and heated from all the heavy lifting that the fire alarms went off! (We actually triggered them off, whoops!) We had a brief chat with the fire marshal, and then got right back to work.

Let’s just say if we saw Jeff or any of the other members of the the gym walking down the street, we’d think twice before messing with them. Those guys are jacked!

With the winter refusing to give up, we’re trying to move on and warm up to something more exciting than the snow. And what’s better than some melty ICE CREAM! Let that insatiable appetite for luscious flavors and creamy textures stimulate your imagination. You will forget the cold in no time when the sensations explode, popping like fireworks from your taste buds. Your brain will instantly fall in love, as all you can think about is “ICE CREAM!” You have just been ice-creamatized!

We created these animated GIFs to illustrate that exact point – the love for ice cream never ends.


Drip, drip, drip…




When the cold weather hit, it meant one thing at the studio- Indresano Angel’s time! We got a date on the calendar, found our inspiration images and we were ready to go!

Maryelle Artistry came to help get the production team all ‘glammed’ up for the shoot. It’s not everyday you get to get the full Kardashian treatment!

A couple of final touches from Maryelle on set as the lighting gets set.

Executive Producer Millie stands in to help get all the final touches ready, and to show off her fabulous outfit!

Emma, Millie, and Shannon really know how to work their angels!

A quick shot behind the set shows all the work that goes into getting the lighting and set just right!

Charlie’s Angels had their mysterious leader, but we think ours is much cuter. 🙂

One last shot of Mommy and baby Michael, because we couldn’t pick just one!


“Cream or sugar?” It’s the clichéd 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!


With the beginning of 2017 upon us, it’s a good time to reflect on all the highlights and video and photo accomplishments of 2016. Here are just some of the exciting and rewarding projects we were able to work on throughout the past year.

The year started out with a trip to warmer climates for the first leg of an executive video interview series for a corporate client. Our team packed up as much of the video equipment as they could and headed off to San Diego!

The rest of the interviews took place in the snowy wonderland of Massachusetts. While the weather was a bit colder, the interviews were all just as warm and friendly, and the clients loved the final videos!

Next up was the completion of an ad campaign for a master’s program at Brown University. The high end photography was complimented by some explosive videography to push the program to the next level.

The video portion was very well received, and even won the agency, NAIL Communications, a Hatch Award towards the end of the year!

While the Boston Bruins season was in full swing, we released the exciting video of Tuukka Rask we started in 2015. His killer reflexes and crazy saves continued to excite and entertain us through the 2016 season!

Near the close of the winter, we worked with SCENE magazine to capture their Spring cover of Boston Police Commissioner William Evans. Working with the commissioner’s busy schedule, Michael and the team worked quickly to make sure the location and set up was just right. We LOVE how the final image looks on the cover of the magazine.

With the spring came new projects for new clients. The Wynn Casino opening in Everett needed a photographer to capture all the details of their 3-D model, and the Indresano team were just the ones to do it!

Before the football season got into full swing, we worked with SCENE magazine again to do a 2-day cover shoot with New England Patriots Wide Receiver Danny Amendola. We started with some shots in full (and partial) uniform at Gillette Stadium

The next day, Amendola came to the studio to show off his fashionable side. While he is a great asset to the Patriot’s team, he could certainly have a back up career as a model!

Fall was quickly here and the leaves began to fall. Our friends at Liberty Mutual took this as a time to partner with Medicine Wheel on a clean up of No Man’s Land. Our video production team captured the collaboration for all to see!

When Thanksgiving started to approach, we worked with the fun team at ’47 Brand to get some holiday-worthy images of their sports team apparel to share through the rest of the year to take us into 2017! It was a lot of moving pieces to coordinate, but in the end the results were more than worth it!

A theme throughout the 2016 year for us was ICE CREAM! As a Boston Food Photographer, we wanted to share several new GIFs and videos made throughout the year showing the many ways you can enjoy a frozen treat.

With so many exciting projects all packed into 1 year, we can’t wait to see what video and photography projects 2017 will have in store for us!


As a Boston Food Photographer studio, it’s no surprise we like ICE CREAM around here! Just take a look through our website 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.


Except melting chocolate ice cream!


Imagine doing a double twister triple somersault dive straight into this scoop Olympic style?



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


Over the course 3 rainy days, Liberty Mutual had over 150 employees volunteer to clean up a public park called No Man’s Land in South Boston.  Michael Indresano and the team are doing their part in giving back to the community. Joining hands with Liberty Mutual on behalf of Medicine Wheel on this project is not only a way to show our appreciation but also to give thanks to the community to which we belong. See video below of all the hard work and inspiring moments from the No Man’s Land cleanup:


Liberty Mutual is a huge contributor to public charity on a global scale.


Anna White, Director of Community  Initiatives at Medicine Wheel, shows volunteers the lay of the land.


Richie Dinsmore, Director of Advocacy and Public Art at Medicine Wheel, gives directions as workers clean up.


Joseph DiMaio from Liberty Mutual led the effort as project manager also gets hands-on and puts in the extra effort.


3 days of rain makes this project that much more rewarding.



Who wouldn’t want to grab a Baskin-Robbins Polar Pizza slice after watching this!? Enjoy!

Check out the final video above!

Some of the behind the scene shots of our Baskin Robbins Polar Pizza. Took Michael and the team 3 days to shoot the sequences needed to make the cut. Each flavor was shot separately and edited in post to give that final polished look. Momentum, music, rhythm, appetite appeal, and the flow of the video are qualities that we focused on highlighting. In total there are 49 actual shots to create this 30 second video, however we took 2-3 takes per shot.


Something that looks simple in a video may be quite complex to shoot. Applying math is an indispensable way of accomplishing such a task. Image above shows how we divided up each slice and marked them numerically for an action sequence. In the final video clip, you can see the results of this kind of math in action.


At the end of the day, it is about getting the shot and getting it right. Executing creative ideas take a lot of “thinking outside the box”. This is just a casual example of the things we use to get the shots we want.

Very cool slow motion behind the scenes video of Jayna dropping the candy pieces on top of the Polar Pizza (below)! See the clip in the final Polar Pizza video at 0.07 seconds in (above).



We always love being able to collaborate with great teams on exciting projects, and the caduceus video we made for NAIL Communications was no different. When we heard they were entered our video collaboration to the Hatch Awards in the category of “Digital : Video Short Form Single Entry” and that it was awarded a merit, we were so proud we just had to share! You can check out some behind the scenes on our blog post on it.
