THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING

And walked they did! – all over Boston to four separate locations as we took it on the road with Timberland for a shoot featuring their latest style. As if that wasn’t enough, we brought our love for pyrotechnics out with us too. We created smoke and steam just to add a little urban flavor to the landscape.

Who would have thought that a public alley way could be used so creatively?

Even Officer Bobby got a little curious.

Our own special recipe for smoke (kids, don’t try this at home!)

You can say these boots are smokin’ 🙂

Dual purpose umbrellas – Mary Poppins would be jealous.

Yeah, that’s us back there.

HONORING THE KENNEDY LEGACY

It was a big day in Boston today – President Barack Obama made a quick visit to Massachusetts to celebrate the opening of the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. The institute is located on the UMass Boston campus, right next to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. President Obama and Joe Biden were among the distinguished guests honoring the late Kennedy’s legacy who passed away in 2009. Michael had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Senator Ted Kennedy back in 1995 right at the beginning of his photography career. See the photo and thank you letter Michael received from the Senator below!

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.

EVERYONE’S A LITTLE IRISH

We’ve been having lots o’ fun this week, gearing up for St. Patty’s Day in Southie–the capital of Irish Boston and humble home to our studio.  Join in on the fun and check out some behind-the-scenes photos from our recent St. Patrick-inspired splash test… because hey, if you can’t drink beer during normal business hours, you might as well splash it.  Sláinte!

The spotless calm before the storm.  Let’s get this party started!

Digital Tech, Jen, skillfully creates the perfect splash, while Michael and our incredible intern, Elise, look on in amazement.

Studio Producer, Caleb, tries to defy gravity with a different technique – the reverse splash.

The Aftermath.  Guinness, green beer, and Heineken kegs… who ever said we had to be all work and no play?!

The Final Ad.

BREAKFAST IN BED… BOY IS HE DREAMING!


Hard work for the models at Indresano Studio today.

Our producer  did work hard though,
to make it look like a believable bedroom.

This bed is made of plywood on saw horses.
It only has to look comfortable!
