NEW ANGLES: PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY SHOOT

Our team always enjoys a chance to capture things from a new angle, and a recent photography and videography project for Mimecast was just the opportunity!

Our client’s aim was to capture models in a moment of ‘falling’ in to a vortex, and we think these models nailed it!

The shoot certainly required a lot of core strength from our models. To help a little, we rigged a second stool as a smaller backrest. When you have to be filmed leaning back for minutes at a time, a little support can go a long way!

Our models still got a good ab workout during this shoot!

Thanks to our video monitor, we were able to catch wardrobe stylist Coleen and hair and make up artist Maryelle in action from a whole new vantage point!

Our photo assistant Abby couldn’t help but have some fun while testing out our set!

After wrapping on a successful and fun day of video and photography, we all wanted to see if we could have been models for the shoot. What do you think?

Check out one of the final videos below!

 

BOSTON POLICE COMMISSIONER: LEADING BOSTON’S FINEST

Boston’s Finest needs a strong leader, and that’s exactly what Police Commissioner William B. Evans is. Our team recently had the opportunity to photograph the Commissioner for the cover of SCENE magazine.  Rather than photographing him in the studio, we wanted to showcase him out in the city he protects.

First thing was getting the set ready. We picked a location with a city skyline, and added in the police cars to set the mood.

Michael and the team worked quickly in the cold to get all the lighting and setup ready for when Commissioner Evans arrived.

SCENE Magazine’s Publisher and Creative Director Bobby DiMarzo chatted with the police offers on location to give them direction for the photoshoot.

When the Commissioner arrived, Michael and Bobby gave him a warm welcome before quickly diving into the details and getting the Commissioner groomed by our stylist Krystle Feher.

Michael went over the image inspiration with the Boston Police Commissioner before beginning the photoshoot to make sure that the mood was just right.

Commissioner Evans and a few of Boston’s Finest got into their places and received a few last minute pointers and tips from Michael before starting.

All that was left to do was to shoot! The team had to work quick to get the perfect image with the time that Commissioner Bill Evans had available in his busy schedule!

Everything went smoothly, and the image only needed a few lines of copy before gracing the cover of SCENE magazine!

TAKING THE NEXT STEP WITH NxSTAGE

Our recent project with NxStage for a home dialysis machine was a rewarding experience! We had a great opportunity to be part of a creative process that will benefit those that require kidney care. On casting day, over 60 people came in to audition for a few different roles. We hit the ground running on the shoot day by creating a set that really told the story and communicated the product message. The images represent the freedom of using home dialysis. Check out the tear sheets from the shoot below!

SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER

Michael surveys a sea of plants

It’s the middle of Winter and if Nature had its way, nothing would bloom. Well today we are seeing something that we usually don’t see this time of year – flowers and plants in full bloom. Michael took the team to Cavicchio Greenhouses in Sudbury to conjure up some Springtime magic, even if it’s below freezing outdoors. That’s no problem, as the temperature in these high-tech greenhouses is a comfortable 75 degrees all year round. Surrounded by glimpses of the Spring to come, seeds of a beautiful shoot are sown with the terrific team from BJs .

BRIT GETS STUCK ON BOSTON

Recently we were contacted for a photo shoot with the fabulous Brit Morin of  Brit +Co and her new partner Velcro Industries. With Brit flying in from San Francisco and the shoot scheduled just days away, we swiftly moved into production with a great crew to create an entire set made of VELCRO® Brand.  The shoot went flawlessly and the client was thrilled with the results, as was Brit. Look for her on the Velcro Industries site throughout the year, especially during the 2013 Holidays!

BJ’s MEMBER JOURNAL GOES DIGITAL

We were very excited to work on BJ’s first Digital Edition of their Member Journal.  Please check out some of our shots below, from fruits and veggies to smoothies to home and body.  Here’s wishing all of you a happy and healthy 2013!

Beautiful cover featuring four different types of smoothies – including one made from kale!

BJ’s is where to go for all of your fresh produce needs.

Everything you need to keep that cold at bay this season.

And check out some of the behind-the-scenes from this shoot:

Up close with the smoothies; these things are nutritional powerhouses.

Food stylist, Karen Tully, and her assistant create beautiful smoothies for the front cover of the digital journal.

Some of the many tools helpful in creating the perfect journal-worthy food shots.

EARTHKEEPERS FOR TIMBERLAND

We were really blown away with how our client, Timberland, used our photography from a recent shoot in the design of their rustic, moody catalog.  Take some time to check out a few pieces from the latest Earthkeepers Collection below; we hope you feel as inspired as we did after this shoot!  (Special thanks to Mari Quirk who provided some amazing surfaces for this shoot.)

Check out some behind-the-scenes from this fun photo shoot:

Tui Stark, stylist represented by Ennis Inc., expertly styles the Timberland bomber jacket in preparation for the shot.

The prepped shoes line up by number to take their turn on set with Michael.

Organization is key when shooting so much product in one day.  Michael and his team have a highly organized system (especially when dealing with product!) to keep the shoot flowing smoothly and seamlessly every time.

Studio dog Sophia says, “Wait a second, I want in on the action!”  Because what shoot is complete without our playful Golden Retriever?

CUMBERLAND FARMS – SURPRISES AROUND EVERY CORNER

Only three weeks into the new year and things are already “snowballing” here at the studio, so we wanted to share a the 3rd in a series of Cumberland Farms winter ads.  We had a lot of fun creating this shot on set, and hope the behind-the-scenes are as entertaining for you as the day was for us.

Our model gets up close and personal with a “snowball.”

RUSTIC COMFORTS

Even though Thanksgiving has come and gone, we apparently still can’t get enough food in our bellies here at the studio.  We’ve been shooting a lot of food lately, so we had to share some more photos from a recent rustic food shoot with expert food stylist, Catrine Kelty.  We love collaborating with Catrine, and everyone was extremely happy with the results of the shoot.    Check out our updated food portfolio for more final shots.

Bon Appétit!

A few of the final shots; scroll down for a look behind-the-scenes:

A glimpse behind-the-scenes into what makes these shots so mouth-watering:

So many microgreens, so little time!  Catrine masterfully pulls together the perfect mix and arranges it beautifully in a rustic wooden bowl.

Michael has a moment alone with a head of lettuce sitting on set–naturally, he lets no opportunity for a beautiful shot pass him by.  Here, he uses some back lighting to showcase every fiber in this beautiful head of “hero” lettuce.

Catrine puts her finishing touches on the bowls of sweet potato soup as Michael sets up for the shot.

Jen has fun on set with a candle when she is tasked with making magical swirling steam appear over a bowl of winter sausage & vegetable soup.
