MAYO BOWL 2014 WITH THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

We were honored to be invited as guests to the Mayo Bowl last night, a fundraiser held by New England Patriot Jerod Mayo to raise money for the Boston Medical Center.  It was such a great time hanging out with the players, as we laughed, ate, and of course took photos, all for a great cause!

What a pleasant surprise to walk into the event to see the photo on the VIP passes was taken by Michael Indresano Photography.  It matched our business cards perfectly!

We never expected to be in the same room as Tom Brady, let alone having drinks with him!

PARIS TO THE CARIBBEAN AND BACK

As promised, here is the second installment of the ads we created with our friends at AAA. It was a fun challenge to set-up a pool in sub freezing temperatures, assemble a 1000 piece puzzle and navigate through the crowd at Gillette stadium during a Patriots game.  We are always willing to go the extra mile  to have a happy and satisfied client at the end of the day!

A first for Michael (right) and Rob, muddying the waters was necessary.

How many assistants does it take to assemble a 1000 piece puzzle? We know!

Game day at Foxboro! Last time we were here, it was shooting for the Patriots, this time AAA.

Michael and Rob will go to any lengths (or snow depths) to get the right angle.

The train emptied out and we worked quickly in a race against daylight.

20TH ANNIVERSARY

It is hard to believe it has been 20 years since I opened my first studio! It feels like yesterday that I welcomed my first client at 355 Congress St., in the late spring of 1992. I have enjoyed every day and every shoot; it has never felt like work to me.

I would like to thank each and every client I have had the privilege to work with over the last 20 years.  It is largely due to their loyalty and innovative ideas that the last 20 years in business have been so rewarding.  I’m not in this alone; my staff of professionals makes it possible for me to focus on what I love most: capturing the perfect image.  It goes without saying that without the support of my family and friends, I would not have achieved this level of success.

Although many things have changed in the photography industry since I snapped my first photo with a Pentax K1000, the way I think about my clients has remained consistent. From day one, my philosophy has been to bring my clients’ vision to life within the comforts of my studio.

My first studio at 355 Congress St.

Former producer, Heather, and I brainstorm before a shoot.

My first client Computervision, Inc., sent me around the globe for 5 weeks in 1993. I traveled with two assistants to South Korea, Italy, Germany, France, Japan (pictured) and Canada photographing CEO’s and factories for companies such as Hyundai, Siemens, Audi, and Fiat, to name a few. That’s me on the far right, with assistant Jeff to the left of me.

33 A Street After

I wanted a place where I could provide a comfortable space with all of the amenities. Luckily, I found a building that was a diamond in the rough at 33 A Street right in South Boston. This has been my home away from home since 1998 and continues to be today.

The patio area at 33 A Street became an outdoor shower for models, Sylvia and Mark, during a shoot for Crabtree & Evelyn.  Assistants Aldo (far left) and Joe (right) had a fun time too!

Hanging out with Jay Leno after I shot his portrait in Burbank, California. I found out that our families descended from the same town: Avellino, Italy!

Below are some of my favorite portraits and personalities from over the past 20 years. It’s been quite a ride – thanks again to everyone who has made it such a memorable adventure!

And here are just some of the thousands of products I’ve had so much fun shooting over the years.

I’m very excited to see what the next 20 years hold for the future of the studio.  If they are anything like the past 20, I can’t wait to get this party started.
