These Boots Were Made for Photographin'

A few months ago we were asked by one of our clients, Timberland, to photograph their classic yellow boot.

Timberland wanted the photo look as though it were shot outside, but it had to be photographed indoors for logistical reasons. So, we had the opportunity to fabricate an outside scene, with a very distinct looking wall and surface replicating the ground beneath the boot.

Since we were heading into a holiday weekend, we had only a few days for approval and to get the final set ready. Oh Boy!

The whole team kicked into high gear, and we want to give special thanks to Mari Quirk for making the set, even though she had a family reunion weekend at her house.

The shoot went fantastically, as we had the opportunity to work with a great stylist from NYC, Emeka Obi, who styled the jeans, while boot assistant Rob Coshow gallantly modeled for the shoot.

From the Street and into the Studio

One of the most rewarding parts of working on various advertising shoots is seeing the final results a few months later. This was a shoot that required careful planning from the start. The original idea was to photograph people in various locations around Boston.  Logistically it would have been possible, but to  and not break the budget and give us total control, shooting in the studio made the most sense. 

Over the course of three days, in the comfort of our studio, we transported our models into boardrooms, classrooms, and even a field of windmills. We shot the models in different poses with the idea that they would be holding a "window" into another part of the company.

The final results came out great! Take a journey and see for yourself!

Meet Hassy!

Indresano Photography would like to introduce you to our newest member of our team. Meet Hassy; our Swedish import, dedicated to making our images sing and our clients happy.

The great folks at EP Levine helped us get the latest Apple Mac Pro Tower and LED Cinema display synched to make sure that the huge, yet stunning files the Hasselblad H4-50 produces to can be shown to our clients instantly. Or if they prefer to relax in our massage chair, they can watch the the shoot progress in real time on an iPad. We are excited to use it next week on an upcoming shoot!

In no time the new camera is comfortable in Michael's hands as he takes it for his first test drive.

Super Ice Cream Shoot

We could not have been more excited to see the Captain America shield up close for a recent Baskin Robbins photo shoot.

We don't get a chance to see such an iconic movie prop everyday, so it was definitely the star of the shoot.  It arrived in a wooden crate straight from Hollywood, and we thought it would be fun to answer some questions that our inquiring readers may have;

Yes, it weighs more than the 12 pounds Marvel Comics claims.

Yes, it is very expensive.  We can only imagine the insurance policy must be similar to these items/body parts.

Yes, we had to give it back. Too bad, they probably noticed if we tried to pull a switch-a-roo

No, we did not test to see if it would stop bullets. We did notice that it would stop a goat. 

No, Chris Evans did not come along (sorry, ladies)

Be sure to check out the movie on July 22nd and get a scoop of Super Soldier Swirl!
