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!



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?


We’ve been shooting apparel like crazy in the studio lately, so we wanted give a shout out to some of the highly talented wardrobe stylists and makeup/hair artists (some who we’ve worked with before, others brand new to the studio) who have helped to make our shoots so successful over the past couple weeks.  Thank you, Ennis, for providing us with such delightfully skilled talent!  They have been a pleasure to work with.

Lori Green touches up our model’s makeup on set between shots.

Abby and Lori work in tandem to create the perfect look in our dressing room.

Stylist, Eileen Eisele, prepares the clothing for the perfect shot.

Wardrobe stylist, Evan Crothers, puts the finishing touches on some sporty attire, moments before Michael begins to shoot.

Makeup and hair stylist, Kacie Corbelle, perfects our model’s makeup before sending her off to set.


Finally! There was a reason why high school chemistry existed, other than to lower student GPAs and cause schools across the country to be evacuated,  as Michael Indresano Studio went back to CHEM 101 and morphed into a research lab for a few days.

Fortunately this was not shot using film and processing it using chemicals, but we could have pulled it off by just going into the kitchen and creating our own darkroom.

After being sworn to Manhattan Project levels of secrecy, Michael and the rest of the team donned white lab coats and methodically created some wonderful images that the client was very happy with – and yes, the studio is still in one piece.

Hair and makeup artist, Heidi Wells, is careful not let any stray powder mix with the solution in the beakers.
There is no such thing as a “strange light” in a photo studio.
The entire creative team looks over the images.
