BIRD STRIKE!

You wouldn’t believe it if we told you, so we’ll show you instead. Before last months crazy blizzard, strong winds were blowing when we heard a tremendous crashing noise. We rushed outside and found a Cooper’s Hawk that had smashed into our window! In an attempt to fly south for the winter and escape the brutal cold & snow, the little guy made an unplanned detour at the studio!

Definitely not ready for a close up after that crash – OUCH.

Amazingly the hawk was still alive, but pretty dazed from the impact.

We immediately called animal rescue at MSPCA and they sent a field technician to recover the injured bird.
At the end of the day, we were all relieved and happy that the hawk survived and is in good hands.

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.

TIMBERLAND WATERPROOF TECHNOLOGY

When it rained, it poured as we captured a short lifestyle video of Timberland’s Waterproof Technology in action! We learned to embrace nature as it comes and enjoy the good things. The best part of the shoot was having the option to stay dry and deciding not to.

VIDEO SHOOT PART 2: BEHIND THE SCENES IN MALAYSIA

Where do we even begin with our trip to Malaysia?! We traversed half way around the globe from Boston to Penang for the second and final stop of our video shoot. Over two days, we shot in a spice garden, a tropical fruit farm, a butterfly sanctuary, the Penang national forest, on the beautiful beaches, and in the thick of the city. We filmed in tuk tuks, out of the back of a moving vehicle, in the water with our underwater camera housing, and on a boat at sunset. Our models held butterflies, rode bikes, hiked in the rainforest, and frolicked in the ocean. We worked hard in the 80% humidity and scorching temperatures, but we wouldn’t have changed one second of it! Stay tuned for Part 3, where we’ll release the final video!

FUN IN THE SUN WITH AQUA LEISURE

It’s been an endless winter here in Boston, so we’re dreaming of an endless summer! Our recent shoot with Aqua Leisure got us into a warmer mindset as we shot colorful water accessories for kids and adults alike to explore an underwater world. We’re ready to dive right in!

A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE

Sometimes we need to think outside of the box to create and capture that perfect shot. Rugged, durable, and authentic were the hot words of this shoot, while keeping the heritage of the Timberland brand top of mind. We loved the challenge of finding specific textures and backgrounds to help carry out this concept. Our favorite setup of the day included the bed of a vintage Ford pick up truck and a ten-foot ladder in order to snap the perfect bird’s eye view shot!

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!

TAKING THE SHOW ON THE ROAD WITH TIMBERLAND

Timberland Company boot photo shoot - CommercialPhotography_Boston

These boots are definitely made for walking.

There is no doubt each time we step out of the door it’s an adventure. This time was with our good friends at Timberland. Shooting outdoors has its special challenges but between the clamor of traffic and curious onlookers we got down to business capturing the right photo environment. Respect & appreciation goes to the Boston Police Department for their assistance in crowd control while the Team worked their magic.
