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!

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!


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!


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!



Our YSL video shoot had the entire staff feeling luxurious. Check out some behind-the-scenes shots of this exciting lipstick filled day!

The Video Shoot:

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!

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…




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!


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.
