Fasten your seat belts, it’s time for an epic lifestyle photo shoot! For this lifestyle shoot, we brought and shot a luxury self-driving car in the studio.

This was not the first car we’ve shot in the studio so we knew exactly how to set up our Hasselblad camera to get the best angles.

Since we were shooting in the studio, we had to create our own weather. We used this fan to help show how it would feel to ride in this luxury autonomous car with the wind in your hair.

A TOTALLY FUN DAY: TOTAL WIRELESS PHOTO AND VIDEO SHOOT

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!

BEST PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY OF 2016!

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!

ICE CREAM POLAR PIZZA SHOOT

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.

FROM TOUCHDOWNS TO STRIKES: THE MAYO BOWL

The New England Patriots might be superstars on the field this year, but the work they do off the field is truly inspirational. In particular, Jerod Mayo’s charity bowling event for the Boston Medical Center showcases the great support the players have for each other and the community.

So you can understand why were so excited to be the videographers for the event. We were ready and set up well before the red carpet started, which started a long wait for the excitement to begin!

The carpet was quickly a buzz when Jerod Mayo and his family showed up. We were fortunate enough to get the exclusive spot right by the door and got the chance to talk to many players including Malcolm Butler, Nate Solder, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman!

Kim Zyotti, the owner of Blue Sky Entertainment and the person who helped to make the whole event happen also took the time to talk to us about the charity and all the good it’s done for the community. Over the last 6 years, the annual event has helped to raise over one million dollars for the Boston Medical Center!screen-shot-2015-10-01-at-12-39-20-pm1

There was even a back door entrance from Tom Brady! While he managed to sneak by our red carpet interviews, our own Michael Indresano got the chance to say a quick hello.

Then it was time for the main event: bowling! Mayo, his family, and other Patriots players bowled alongside teams of fans.

Although he was focused on bowling strikes, Edelman also managed to spare a moment to talk with our production team!

There was also a pool tournament in a second room, where a select few got the chance to shoot pool with players, including Nate Solder or Sebastian Vollmer.

Last up was the auction, which brought “the Chandlers” together to help get the crowd excited and bidding high!

By the end of the night we were exhausted, but some of our team worked through the night to edit together the video showcasing the amazing night. Check the video out below and check our blog out for other exciting behind the scenes access!

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!
