OCD SELF- PROMOTION CAMPAIGN #5: BREAKFAST

Our latest shot for our Self-Promotion Campaign with Fort Franklin.
Breakfast with Michael Indresano Photography
is a unique and precise experience.

Begins with a layout.

A few dozen eggs, to find the perfectly round yolk.

Hire a food stylist, like Travis Grandon.

 

A few instruments for cutting and shaping.

Travis to continually whip up a froth in the orange juice.

Bacon rejects, stolen by the Sparky the cat.

Meticulous placement of the eating implements.

Yes, an exacto and tweezers should do the trick.

Review the options….

 

Presto, Breakfast is served!

O YA, OH YEAH!

Boston’s award winning Japanese restaurant and sushi bar.”O Ya was named #1 New Restaurant in United States
in 2008 by the New York Times,
World’s 10 Best New Restaurants of the Year by Food & Wine
and deemed “Transcendental” by CNN Money
among other #1 and top ten ratings.”

prepping…

 

cooking…and eating!

Joel braving the cold to set up the perfect lighting
Mike carrying equipment up and down, up and down,
at least four, …maybe five, flights of stairs. 

Beautiful portrait of Mike (nice job Michele!). 

At least we can pretend it is a warm sunny afternoon with cocktails
(red dye and water, yum!).

 

No Cindy, you can’t thaw out with a hot bath, time to go!

COMCAST “ROBOT DOG”

Floyd Sipe, the “Floyd” of Floyd Factory, revising layouts.

LITTLE TINY, LITL WEBBOKS

They are small, flexible and adorable!

CANDY IS DANDY…

Look at that focus to get the perfect sprinkles

 

Under Michael’s wing, Michele shot this one.
“Michael, you said this was going to be easy! My back is killing me!”

“Candy” tools

 

If I had hammer…

 

Sugar-soaked, red-dyed cherries anyone?

 

Finally picture perfect candy trays!

It’s a wrap! Which one should we dig into first!?!

WHEN IT COMES TO KIDS: SAFETY FIRST

Full Contact’s Amy Rappeport hired Indresano for Safety 1st’s new car seat- designed to minimize the effect of side-impact crashes.

When Our Producer  couldn’t find an existing car to meet the “crash specs”, we sent Robyn Maguire, Studio Intern, off to the junk yard to find a car we could mold to our needs.

Robyn prepping the custom smashed car; now with the impact where the child safety seat would be.

Destruction compliments of G&J Towing.

Michael overcoming spacial challenges to get the shot (with the show mom making her way to the front: My Baby’s gonna be famous!).

We moved the studio outside for the day.

Digital Tech, Rob Coshow (a.k.a. Spiderman) going above and beyond his job description to keep the babies entertained.

Full Contact‘s Creative Director, Tim Foley joins Michael in taking a look at the latest shot.

Ryan, from Safety 1st, turned into a kid himself on this shoot!

This little champ takes a break to build up his energy for his next big smile.

Keeping happy babies was a big task, but Ryan and stylist, Beth Wickwire, stepped up to the plate and hit it out of the park.
God Bless them.
