We all decided to give up our summer diets for one day only when the smell of freshly baked  pizza permeated the studio last month.  There was no escaping the grip this cheesy goodness had on our senses – it smelled so good even the camera couldn’t get enough…

After a day of shooting and help from master food stylist, Catrine Kelty, we delivered the ad-worthy shot above.  The ad is featured in this month’s BJ’s journal.

Catrine uses a heat gun to keep the cheese nice and melty until Michael gets the perfect shot.

Doubling as a prop stylist, Catrine never fails to bring a wide array of props… this lady really knows what she’s doing.

Close-up of the heat gun in action… must keep that cheese melted to remain picture perfect!

Michael studies the layouts to make sure the lighting is perfect.

***CLIENTS!  New feature: All of the images Michael shoots on set can be viewed real-time on the oversized flat screen TV in our client sitting area.  Now you can sit back, relax, and oversee the shoot from the comforts of the massage chair!

After a long day, it’s time to serve up some hot slices.


Recently, one of our clients asked us to hit the road and photograph a family in southern Massachusetts. BJ’s Wholesale Club prints a quarterly journal for it members and features a member profile in each issue.
It is always a fun challenge to go into someone’s home and photograph people who are not models or used to being in front of a camera. We rearranged their living room to create a studio for the main picture and then set up a shot on the couch to capture the whole family.  Cindy was fantastic to work with, and her little girls, Ryleigh, Peyton, and Emerson were very fun.
After we put everything back in it’s place we bid them farewell and headed back to Boston.
If you are a BJ’s member you could be the next member profile – go to their Facebook page to learn more!


It looks gourmet, but you can get it all from the freezer section at
