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!


As a Boston Food Photographer studio, it’s no surprise we like ICE CREAM around here! Just take a look through our website and you will notice we are obsessed with ice cream! Some people love cat videos, we LOVE ice cream. We photograph ice cream, we video ice cream. If the sun were a ginormous scoop of tiramisu gelato we would be a sunflower basking in its delicious ice creamy rays. And we would take the ice cream on exciting adventures too. Like this recent project where we made cool melty looks from a few of our favorite flavors.


Nothing looks more tasty than melting vanilla ice cream.


Except melting chocolate ice cream!


Imagine doing a double twister triple somersault dive straight into this scoop Olympic style?



We are such enthusiasts, we even create our own homemade vanilla bean ice cream!


Who wouldn’t want to grab a Baskin-Robbins Polar Pizza slice after watching this!? Enjoy!

Check out the final video above!

Some of the behind the scene shots of our Baskin Robbins Polar Pizza. Took Michael and the team 3 days to shoot the sequences needed to make the cut. Each flavor was shot separately and edited in post to give that final polished look. Momentum, music, rhythm, appetite appeal, and the flow of the video are qualities that we focused on highlighting. In total there are 49 actual shots to create this 30 second video, however we took 2-3 takes per shot.


Something that looks simple in a video may be quite complex to shoot. Applying math is an indispensable way of accomplishing such a task. Image above shows how we divided up each slice and marked them numerically for an action sequence. In the final video clip, you can see the results of this kind of math in action.


At the end of the day, it is about getting the shot and getting it right. Executing creative ideas take a lot of “thinking outside the box”. This is just a casual example of the things we use to get the shots we want.

Very cool slow motion behind the scenes video of Jayna dropping the candy pieces on top of the Polar Pizza (below)! See the clip in the final Polar Pizza video at 0.07 seconds in (above).


Graphis Competitions honored us with these 4 Merit Awards for our images from a recent shoot with Baskin Robbins! We’ll be celebrating with some ice cream!

Here are some more of our favorite behind-the-scenes photo opps from 2012.  We hope you enjoy, and we look forward to capturing even more fun moments on set in 2013.  Happy new year, everyone!


Velcro shoot: the school children — ahem, crew — sit quietly at their desks as they wait to take directions from the teacher during Saturday detention.


Long shoot days make for a sleepy Lulu!


Our 2012 interns learned a lot (while having some fun!) in the studio this year.  Thanks Elise, Anthony, and Allie for all your help!


The creatives from Hill Holliday don’t mind taking risks on set as they encourage our model to leap over them.

Caleb shows up at work even against Doctor’s orders.


Joel and Michael do a great job telling jokes to get our child actors smiling during a shoot.

Lauren and Jen get crafty in the kitchen during a shoot – cake decorating takes some serious teamwork!

Food stylist and Instagram-enthusiast, Catrine Kelty, takes a moment on set to post a snapshot for her avid followers.


Michael and Digital Tech, Jen, review images outside on a chilly day shooting on location, their iced coffees never far away.

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!


With this year’s Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, we wanted to share a special treat that was brought to our studio by our wonderfully creative client, Baskin-Robbins.  We thought we’d pose the question: what do you get when you cross a seasonal bird and a cake made of ice cream?

Why, a Baskin-Robbins Thanksgiving Turkey Ice Cream Cake, of course!

Not your ordinary cake, you might be thinking, but this ice cream cake is sure to be the hit of many Thanksgiving dessert tables come this Thursday.  We had a rare opportunity to photograph this one-of-a-kind cake for Baskin-Robbins’ holiday promotion.  This bird’s looks caused us to get a little silly in the studio… and we weren’t the only ones who got a kick out of it.

Digital Tech, Jen, pretends to “bake” the turkey cake.  Thank goodness no one turned the oven on for this one, or else we would have had a melting bird on our hands!

Jen, a.k.a. Martha Stewart, fixes pancakes from scratch for our clients while the shots are displayed on the big screen in our client area.

Michael’s final shot of the Thanksgiving Turkey Cake.  Be careful you don’t mistake this one for the real thing come Thursday!

And for the more sensible portion-seeker this holiday season, there’s always the single drumstick.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!


We are proud to share with everyone the latest edition to the studio (besides Natalia of course): our new prop room!

We’ve been actively building out our props collection over the past year and a half, so this summer we thought it was about time to showcase all of our great finds.

Our clients now have easy access and visibility to our large array of props and dish ware.  If a client needs something last minute, there’s a good chance you can find it here.

Our prop room is full of in-house dishes, silver ware, fabric, napkins, and various other props.

All the fabric and napkins are neatly organized and color coded, the OCD Photographer’s dream come true!

We have a diverse variety of bowls, making it very easy to find the perfect one.

A small glimpse into our glassware section.

Need a plate?  We’ve got you covered.

Pinky’s favorite section 😉

We also have a great selection of wood surfaces (not pictured here), including some new ones we picked up at Brimfield this year.  If you have any questions about what we have in stock, please give us a call and we’d be happy to send over some images of our extended collection.


Here come… the Men in Black. (again)

While we may secretly wish that we could announce we shot Will Smith’s promo portraits for the upcoming Men in Black III premiere here at the studio, we are proud to say that we did play a fun role in the promotion of the new film, which premieres nationwide this Memorial Day weekend.

We had the unique opportunity to help kick off ice cream season with some of Baskin-Robbins’ new flavor tie-ins to MIB III, which is predicted to be a summer blockbuster.  Enjoy some of our behind-the-scenes shots below, and indulge yourself in a scoop (or two or three) at your nearest Baskin-Robbins store this weekend.  What better way to kick off summer than with some Lunar Cheesecake or Pink Surprise Cake ice cream, a Spacey Sundae, or the new Triple Mocha Cappuccino Blast?

Aliens invaded the studio for one day only — though we had to do some hand grooming before taking them on set.

Prop designer, Shannon Shea (“The Captain”) flew in from Los Angeles to “handle” our alien hand. He paid close attention to every intricate detail on the hand, which was actually used in MIB III.

Cradled by alien hands, Lunar Cheesecake ice cream makes its debut on set.  Videographer, Justin, captures some behind-the-scenes footage in the background.

Michael works his magic behind the lens, capturing the perfect angle of the Triple Mocha Cappuccino Blast.

We think the final ad turned out great!
