GOVERNOR CHARLIE BAKER LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR KARYN POLITO VISIT THE INDRESANO STUDIO

Things were quite exciting at the studio last week when the Governor Charlie Baker stopped by! Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito also made an appearance so Michael could photograph the two for the Spring cover of Scene Magazine. The Indresano team was honored to have both high-profile public officials take some time out of their busy schedules to visit the studio. State Troopers came to the studio the day prior to conduct a site survey and they also assessed the area twice during the day of the shoot to ensure everything was safe and ready for the Governor’s arrival! Check out some pictures from the shoot below as well as an exclusive behind the scenes video!

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.

THE BEST MISERABLE DAY WE’VE HAD

A mix of freezing rain, wind, and snow really put a damper on our shoot for the Pine Street Inn, but it turned out to be exactly what we needed! Shooting the promo piece for the Pine Street Inn in such dismal weather conditions not only gave us the opportunity to bring our video concept to life, but also gave us the chance to experience what it was like to be exposed to such harsh elements for an extended period of time. Going into the shoot, no one could have predicted the feelings we would all have at the end of the day. There was an overall greater appreciation for the warm homes we are fortunate to return to each night. We felt an extreme sense of pride creating such a strong awareness video for the Pine Street Inn to help fight homelessness. Take a look through our photos and experience what this long but fulfilling day was like!

Take a look at our finished commercial!

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.

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!

GOBBLE GOBBLE

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!

SO REFRESHING: OUR SUMMER PROMO CAMPAIGN

Like any good business knows, you need to keep things fresh — or run the risk of losing your audience’s attention.   Well, we like to keep our clients (and all you potential clients out there!) in the know about what we’ve been up to here at the studio via our blog, and you told us you were still thirsty for more.

So this summer we decided to lighten things up a bit, starting with what we had in our cups.  We centered our summer promo campaign around refreshing drinks that would quench your thirst for more beautiful photography.  Michael kicked off the campaign by producing a slew of thirst-quenching drink photographs, then we thought, “What good is a drink without a proper receptacle?”  So, to keep our clients well-hydrated, we ordered customized drink tumblers and then even more ideas started flowing.  So grab your tumbler, and take a few minutes to check out our photos below to see how the rest of the campaign played out… bottom’s up!

Our bold, refreshing drinks made their debut in an email blast (below):

After our email stirred up a buzz in the creative community, we decided to take the images offline and created a print mailer showcasing some of our favorites.  Creative with a Twist: that’s us!

We wanted a little something special to tie the campaign together, so we thought drink tumblers would be the perfect fit for all of our thirsty clients.  Just as the mailers were being sent out, Michael was hard at work creating even more refreshing imagery to line the inside of the tumblers.  We think the finished products turned out beautifully.

Which is your beverage of choice: cucumber-watermelon spritzer, strawberry lemonade, iced coffee, or peach-thyme iced tea?

Each of four different liners were individually inserted into the drink tumblers by hand.  Tedious work, but someone’s gotta do it!

Below, enjoy some behind-the-scenes photos from our “Refreshing” summer campaign.  We had lots of fun shooting these drinks and bringing the campaign to life.

Anthony delicately wraps each tumbler in tissue paper, getting them all ready to ship.

Tumblers galore!

Tumblers all boxed up and ready to go.

Risk-taker Anthony takes matters into his own hands; while Lauren and Jen ship off the tumblers at the Post Office.
