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!

There’s no need to fish around for the right dialysis product.

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.

Who would have thought that a public alley way could be used so creatively?

Even Officer Bobby got a little curious.

LIFE’S A LITTLE SWEETER WITH UNREAL CANDY

Mouth watering tastes and eye-catching colors filled the studio when UNREAL came on set to shoot their bold new packaging. We love what UNREAL is about- great tasting candy made with all natural ingredients, or in other words, candy that is “unjunked”. That made us feel a little less guilty as we snacked on candy coated chocolates and peanut butter cups throughout the day!

SMOOTHIE POWER!

With the change in weather, we thought it was time to get fit and ready for the summer. We started off our beach diet shooting with the great a client to get some healthy and tasty images into their cafes. All of the smoothies were delicious and gave us the energy to power through and create great pictures all day long! See below for a few of the final ads;

GETTING INTO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT

These cheery Baskin-Robbins holiday ads, featuring Michael’s photography, put smiles on all of our faces with their debut this month.  We are filled with holiday spirit here at the studio and hope all of you are having a festive December, as well.  ‘Tis the season!

How could you not smile seeing these cute faces light up your table this holiday?

Consider giving the gift of ice cream this year!

Michael’s photo of a Santa ice cream cake makes picking up a gift card simply irresistible.

This cake is so cute, it will be gone before you can sing one line of “Frosty the Snow—!”

Love featuring the Flavor of the Month.  Cool, minty chocolate chip ice cream must be Santa’s favorite!

RUSTIC COMFORTS

Even though Thanksgiving has come and gone, we apparently still can’t get enough food in our bellies here at the studio.  We’ve been shooting a lot of food lately, so we had to share some more photos from a recent rustic food shoot with expert food stylist, Catrine Kelty.  We love collaborating with Catrine, and everyone was extremely happy with the results of the shoot.    Check out our updated food portfolio for more final shots.

Bon Appétit!

A glimpse behind-the-scenes into what makes these shots so mouth-watering:

So many microgreens, so little time!  Catrine masterfully pulls together the perfect mix and arranges it beautifully in a rustic wooden bowl.

Michael has a moment alone with a head of lettuce sitting on set–naturally, he lets no opportunity for a beautiful shot pass him by.  Here, he uses some back lighting to showcase every fiber in this beautiful head of “hero” lettuce.

Catrine puts her finishing touches on the bowls of sweet potato soup as Michael sets up for the shot.

Jen has fun on set with a candle when she is tasked with making magical swirling steam appear over a bowl of winter sausage & vegetable soup.
