Fasten your seat belts, it’s time for an epic lifestyle photo shoot! For this lifestyle shoot, we brought and shot a luxury self-driving car in the studio.

This was not the first car we’ve shot in the studio so we knew exactly how to set up our Hasselblad camera to get the best angles.

It was such a treat to shoot with Lauren Fitzgerald from Maggie Inc. Lauren is naturally beautiful, but TEAM Makeup Artist Paula helped enhance her gorgeous features!

Since we were shooting in the studio, we had to create our own weather. We used this fan to help show how it would feel to ride in this luxury autonomous car with the wind in your hair.

A FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER’S DREAM COME TRUE: NEWLY RENOVATED PROP ROOM

Welcome to our newly renovated prop room! With a space the size of a small studio apartment- 18 x 24 ft (432 sq. ft)- we have plenty of room for our huge collection of props ūüôā What more could a food photographer want?

We’ve updated and organized our large plate selection to accommodate any food imaginable. For a studio that loves food photography as much as we do, this prop room is a dream come true.

Ice cream bowl? Check. Soup bowl? Check. Coin bowl? Check. You name it, we’ve got the right bowl for you. It’s truly an oasis for a food photographer :p

We created an efficient system to arrange our platters, dishes, vases, mason jars, glasses, silveware, and so much more. Clients can see and access what we have available by simply visiting the prop room- in person or digitally!

Color coded and perfectly folded fabrics make us happy ūüôā¬†Our newly updated system lets clients find what they need quickly and effortlessly. We’ve digitally archived all of our props so clients can pick exactly what they want before even coming to the studio!

Beautiful china such as these deserves a nice place to call home and we are happy to have built it.

With all these dishes, we might need to have a dinner party soon :p

We also have wooden surfaces, metal surfaces, all kinds of background options, and many more props not seen here. With all these props, we can create any set imaginable!

If you have any questions about what we have in stock, please give us a call and we’d be happy to send over some images of our extended collection.

A TOTALLY FUN DAY: TOTAL WIRELESS PHOTO AND VIDEO SHOOT

We recently worked on a new campaign of images and GIFs, and we knew immediately we were in for an exciting time at the studio. With two sets for a photo and video shoot, seven models and stylists, it was a packed house full of fun! Check out more below.

We started the morning off right with the energetic Courtland. With so many different models coming in overlapping times throughout the day, it was great to start the day on a high note.

When having both a photography and video shoot in a day, you need to streamline everything as much as possible. We worked seamlessly with our team to get both a photography and green screen video set in side by side.

Hair and makeup artist Alexandra from TEAM helped make sure Gabi, the model, was looking her best on both sets!

Hiding behind the racks, you can see a glimpse our wardrobe/prop stylist Coleen, also from TEAM, hard at work. She shopped for all seven models and the different props needed for the shoot- talk about shopping ’til you drop!

The high energy start to the shoot continued throughout the entire day¬†. Just look at this excitement! It’s safe to say we had a totally awesome day with Total Wireless!

TIMBERLAND: 1 PIECE, 3 WAYS

We recently had the opportunity to work with Timberland on their new line of clothing and shoes for their “1 Piece, 3 Ways” microsite. ¬†With an incredibly talented team of wardrobe stylists and hair & makeup artists, and direction from a truly creative team at Timberland, we found countless ways to show off these great new products. ¬†Who doesn’t love a piece of clothing or footwear you can get 3+ completely different looks out of?

Here are our photos, as featured on Timberland‘s website (then keep scrolling down for some behind-the-scenes!):

Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the multi-day shoot:

Wardrobe stylists choose the perfect combination of clothing pieces to accentuate each Timberland product.

Sly Anthony tries to sneak in a shot of Michael between takes — little did he know Michael was actually taking a photo of¬†him!

As Michael prepares for the next shot, the client is able to view images in real time on our double computer screen and also tethered to the big screen. ¬†No matter where you are in the studio, you’re never far from viewing the images.

Clients are able to sit back and relax as they’re working hard in the comforts of the client area (complete with massage chair), watching their images come in on the big screen as the shoot goes smoothly in the shooting area.

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 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‚Äôs 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!

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.
