BEST PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY OF 2017

With the start of 2018, we looked back on a year full of challenging photography and videography projects, exciting clients, and big changes at the studio! Check out some of the highlights of the last year below:

The year started off with a photoshoot – Baby Michael’s first time on set! During our annual Indresano’s Angels shoot, we were fortunate to have our own ‘Charlie’ for the day, although we think ours was a little cuter. ūüôā

Then it was time for some deja vu:¬†we were back in San Diego to conduct a video interview of new international executives for a corporate video series. Our crew did a quick turnaround and was only on the ground for 36 hours, but that didn’t stop them from seeing the sights and getting in a little local fun!

With the crew back to the cold New England, we had a client who was keeping it hot in the studio with a model photoshoot! Hair product company Toni & Guy came to the studio for a glamorous beauty shoot. In addition to the final shots of fun new hairstyles, we also captured some tutorial photographs of how to get the same look.

It wouldn’t be a year in review if we didn’t mention the amazing Superbowl LI win for the Patriots! We were excited to photograph two New England Patriot all-stars in the studio this year- running back James White and tight end Rob Gronkowski. Check out some images and behind the scenes videos below!

This year also included some fun videography projects, including one for a new DuoClean vacuum. We worked to capture the high end, sleek side of a product that people often overlook as simply utilitarian.

Some of our video productions also took the team on location, such as the 2-day video shoot we did in a gym to showcase Nike. We worked with a highly athletic model to help capture a gritty and intense final video.

We also had a new exciting addition to our photography team this year- our Hasselblad H6D 100C! It gives us files twice the size of other leading cameras, a much faster shutter speed, and 4K video capabilities.

The team was very honored to win a Black and White Spider Award for our photography and a Hatch Award from the Ad Club for our videography. Below is the Hasselblad image that won for the Black and White Spider Award.

And below is the video we made with MIT Tangible Media which won a Hatch Award in 2017.

We also had several opportunities to drive some high-end cars into the studio. First up was a Range Rover in order to capture a sleek and detail oriented video showcasing the car. Next up was a Volvo XC90 Excellence Edition. We used the luxury car to showcase a new software design which creates a proactive suspension that eliminates motion in the car. The images from that shoot are coming in a blog soon, so keep an eye out!

A big project we undertook this year was converting our storage room into a highly organized prop closet. We went through all the props we collected over the years and logged them in a digital portfolio. We also created a numbering system so that we will be able to find any prop needed instantly. The result is a food photographer’s dream come true!

This past year, the team had a chance to capture some shoe photography as well as make some videos. For instance, this fall we collaborated with Timberland on an exciting project, where we used photo smoke and our Sony F5 to create a social media campaign for their Limited Release boot.

We also worked with New Balance to create a dynamic photography campaign in magazines and other printed publications.

It wouldn’t be an annual review of all our work if we didn’t mention some of our food photography! We teamed up with Improper Bostonian and the talented food stylist John Carafoli to capture the cover photo for their pasta issue. Check out the final result below!

With a¬†year as full as this one, we can’t wait for all the new projects and changes that 2018 will bring. Make sure to stay tuned to our blog to get sneak peeks and behind the scenes access in the new year!

BEST OF 2015: OUR VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECTS IN REVIEW

2015 was quite a year for us here at the studio! From exciting photo and video projects to awards we were honored to win, we have a lot to be thankful for! Here are some of our favorite memories:

Early in the year, we were still working on finalizing and putting out two exciting video projects. The first was the Seapoint Estate video, where we highlighted a beautiful ocean side mansion.

Another project we finished up was a TV commercial to help promote the Pine Street Inn, a local homeless shelter in Boston. It was exciting to see our work air on Channel 5!

Even though the weather was poor, our spirits remained high!

We also finished up a video helping showcase the non-profit Medicine Wheel and their goal of installing a paved path connecting the Boston National Historical Park.

When Obama came to Boston to open the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States in honor of the late Ted Kennedy, we all enjoyed reminiscing on when Michael photographed Ted Kennedy in 1995.

In April, Michael was honored to be highlighted in Boston.com for his constant philanthropic work for the community and his help for local charities to increase their support and donations.

In May, Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito came to the studio to be photographed for the cover of Scene Magazine. We were all so excited they took the time from their busy schedule to get their portraits taken!

Over the summer, we got started on some exciting video projects, starting with a video and photoshoot featuring Boston Bruin’s goal keeper Tuukka Rask.

Next, we worked on some some dramatic close-up filming and photography showcasing the beauty of the new iRobot product.

We also helped to promote one of Medicine Wheel’s other endeavors, Hand in Hand. The program helps to promote communication and understanding between police officers¬†and young adults.

Using a dolly and a lot of patience, we worked tirelessly to capture the beauty of Circle Furniture.

The fun continued when we filmed the Mayo Bowl hosted by New England Patriots Defensive Captain Jerod Mayo. It was a lot of work but we made some time for meeting some of the Patriots team, including Tom Brady, Danny Amendola, Chandler Jones and Julian Edelman!
