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!

Santa knows what the Indresano team loves- a jam-packed day of apparel and model photography! This festive shoot for the winter was certainly full of excitement- and lots of fun lights! Check out some behind the scenes of shots like this one below:

Chicago Cubs, MLB, 47 Brand

With a shoot like this, more variety is better! We had a set builder design and construct two 8 foot by 8-foot backgrounds to use during the shoot.

The builder carefully burned one background to provide a unique texture and rustic feel to the set.

After we set up the¬†backgrounds, our set stylist went to work making them into fully decked out environments- down to the last plant arrangement. ūüôā

We started the day out without models, and so for the apparel shots we got in a bit closer to really play with the props and lighting.

Looks like Raider’s fans are getting a little more than coal in their stocking this year! It was so much fun to play with the textures in this shot.

oakland raiders, NFL, 47 Brand

As they say, a good wardrobe stylist always bring 3 times as much as you need! With racks lining the entire hall, that was definitely the case for this shoot.

As we started working with the models, everyone had to make sure the composition of the shot looked correct. The downtime, while everyone is reviewing, is the perfect time for a quick makeup check!

After a quick touch up, the models are back on set and getting playful to show off the products.

Our prop stylist worked to carefully wrap the lights around a skull for one of the more intricate hero shots of the day.

The final result of the skull looked perfect, and our model helped create the perfect frame for the shot.

Before the Patriots season kicked off and took over everyone’s Sundays, the Indresano team had the opportunity to work on a two-day, multi-location shoot with fan-favorite Danny Amendola. While the final images are now published in a series in Scene magazine, we wanted to give you a look behind the ‘Scene’:

First up is getting the camera and lighting just right.


The overcast over Gillette stadium might look dreary, but it makes for great photography lighting!


After a day of training, the Patriots wide receiver meets up with Michael to get started.

He brought his full gear, but we didn’t need it for the first few shots…

All eyes on Danny! Our videographer helped to capture some behind the scenes video of our time as well.

The day wouldn’t be complete without a group photo on the field!

While the shot was all suit, Danny kept it casual out of frame.

After our second set we had time for some natural lighting!

Michael couldn’t help but grab a quick shot of our Production Coordinator¬†Shannon working hard and enjoying her view of the set.


Before the shoot wrapped, Danny grabbed a quick behind the scenes snap of his own!

It wasn’t just the summer¬†heat keeping the studio hot! Giorgos¬†flew from New York to be our model at the studio for a big apparel company¬†video shoot. We had a lot of fun filming him¬†in various different pairs of pants for their spring line. Keep an eye out for the trendy jeans and chino pants coming to stores near you! Here’s a sneak peek and¬†behind-the-scenes look at the work that went into creating the video production and final images!

The production girls were Giorgos’ biggest fans!


 After having Giorgo walk around shirtless most of the day, of course we had to share a picture with all of you!



Recently, one of our clients asked us to hit the road and photograph a family in southern Massachusetts.¬†BJ’s Wholesale Club prints a quarterly journal for it members and features a member profile in each issue.
It is always a fun challenge to go into someone’s home and photograph people who are not models or used to being in front of a camera. We rearranged their living room to create a studio for the main picture and then set up a shot on the couch to capture the whole family.¬† Cindy was fantastic to work with, and her little girls, Ryleigh, Peyton, and Emerson were very fun.
After we put everything back in it’s place we bid them farewell and headed back to Boston.
If you are a BJ’s member you could be the next member profile – go to their Facebook page to learn more!


Finally! There was a reason why high school chemistry existed, other than to lower student GPAs and cause schools across the country to be evacuated,  as Michael Indresano Studio went back to CHEM 101 and morphed into a research lab for a few days.

Fortunately this was not shot using film and processing it using chemicals, but we could have pulled it off by just going into the kitchen and creating our own darkroom.

After being sworn to Manhattan Project levels of secrecy, Michael and the rest of the team donned white lab coats and methodically created some wonderful images that the client was very happy with – and yes, the studio is still in one piece.

How many props can the prop prepper prep?

Due to the hard work of our innovative producer Michele,
believe it or not, the laundry room was created in our studio!

Phil just got another bright idea!

Michael too, “Maybe I should iron my socks at home!”

Tui, where did you get these digs? Big and Tall or just BIG!
Michele says, don’t worry Michael, we can clamp them in the back!

Keith and Phil may have come up with the creative concept,
however, that’s Michele behind the camera, choosing the perfect steam moment.

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.

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.
