GRONK TIME: NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ROB GRONKOWSKI PHOTOSHOOT

As the football season kicked off, the Indresano team was excited to kick off a new project with New England Patriots Rob ‘Gronk’ Gronkowski for his latest brand partnership with Brookstone- the GronkBall!

If you’re sad you missed it, don’t worry! We captured some behind the scenes shots of the fun football filled day so you can relive it with us.

As usual, Michael was completely focused on getting the shot just right.

Even Rob Gronkowski needs a little wardrobe styling! Thankfully Coleen from TEAM Artists was on hand to make everything perfectly camera ready. ūüôā

Gronk came prepared with many poses and was working the camera the whole shoot. Here’s a little sneak peak at one our personal favorite faces from the Patriots player!

Gronkowski screams summer ready in this shot. We would love to have a day at the beach with the fun and lovable Gronk!

As the team reviewed the shots, Patriots player Gronkowski just had to test his new product. Can you guess who Gronk was playing catch with on set?

If you guessed our Production Coordinator Shannon then you were correct! She couldn’t pass up the chance to play catch with the all-star¬†New England Patriots tight end!

CHILLIN’ WITH CARBONITE

If your first thought is Star Wars when you hear the word Carbonite, you are not alone. What this company offers, however, isn’t in the stars, but rather in the cloud. Founded in 2005, Carbonite is a high tech company that provides cloud backup and storage services to clients across the globe. In recent years,¬†they have since expanded to become one of the leading online data backup providers in the world. But that has not made them take themselves¬†too¬†seriously.¬†From a life size Yoda statue to silhouettes of Darth Vadar, this 50,000 square foot office screams fun!

Michael and the team photographed over a dozen top execs from Carbonite. Shooting was a breeze as we set up using our latest ultra high pixel-count camera addition to the family (more about that at a later point). Michael has also invested into using the latest technology in lighting and you can see in some of the shots below the lights are all LED Рno more hot lights and sweaty sets! This was a COOL shoot in more ways than one.

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!

MEDICINE WHEEL PRODUCTIONS – HAND IN HAND

Hand in Hand is an ambitious project of building rapport and extending the circle of friendship to include two often misunderstood groups of people – police officers and young adults. This project is the brainchild of Quincy¬†native and visionary artist Michael Dowling. For over 22 years, he¬†has spearheaded the well respected non-profit organization called Medicine Wheel Productions as its founder and artistic director. Mr. Dowling’s commitment to the positive transformation of troubled youths through art and community building has won him extensive recognition.

Michael Indresano, a board member of Medicine Wheel, did not hesitate to create a powerful video documentary that celebrates commonality and inclusion, further addressing hot-button social/racial issues that dominate our national conversation today.

Filming the the video took place for a few months and required countless hours of post production. Michael and his team were instrumental in organizing all the interviews, documenting the workshops through video, photographing the portraits, editing the footage together, and acted as technical consultant to all matters relating to video and photo. The video creation process started with a dedicated team of professionals bringing together their diverse skill set and industry know-how into conceptualizing a story. Many hours of brainstorming took place at our 33 A Street studio in South Boston. Michael Indresano led the team as director overseeing the entire creative process. With over 22 years of award-winning photography expertise, he is no stranger to the world of visual story telling. A true seasoned professional and master of detail, Michael directed the camera crew and lighting technicians with precise angles and adjustments; infusing every shot with a consistent degree of thought, emotion, and impact, further driving the message with vigor and determined vision.

The final video release was launched at the Medicine Wheel Turning The Wheel Annual Fundraiser at the Nixon Peabody law firm to exuberant applause. Attendees of the event included Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans, Boston City Councilor at large Ayanna Pressley, Community Affairs Liaison for the Boston Redevelopment Authority Mark McGonagle (MW Chair of the Board of Directors), Boston Police Deputy Superintendent Nora L. Baston, Vice President at Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Karen Young, Community Involvement Director for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Janelle Woods-McNish, Executive Director of South Asian Arts Council Amit Dixit, State Auditor Suzanne M. Bump, along with many more prominent high profile public officials and loyal Medicine Wheel supporters voicing their support for this project.

THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING

And walked they did! – all over Boston to four separate locations as we took it on the road with Timberland for a shoot featuring their latest style. As if that wasn’t enough, we brought our love for pyrotechnics out with us too. We created smoke and steam just to add a little urban flavor to the landscape.

WOULDN’T THIS BE A PERFECT WEEK TO BOOK A VACATION?

We’re wishing to be back in the¬†warm weather after all the snow from that blizzard last¬†week!¬† The picturesque river ways of Watertown Massachusetts got our attention when we scouted this location for a shoot with AAA. It provided the perfect backdrop for the concept of this ad campaign. As the Indresano team set up for the shoot, we encountered a few little web-footed surprises. Take a look!

RE-IMAGINING THE FEMALE FORM

Renaissance artists made paintings of her, Da Vinci and Michaelangelo evoked her from blocks of Carrara marble, photographers of the last 2 centuries captured her on film, musicians composed melodies about her, her beauty and form shown on the silver screen have dazzled audiences from around the world since the first movie reel was set in motion. She is the quintessential representation of biological perfection. Today, entire industries are developed that focus on providing care and health improvements for women. For our most recent project, Michael Indresano Photography has teamed up with an advanced medical imaging corporation who is the leader in defining the standard for women’s health on a journey of re-imagination.
