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.

Wouldn’t this be the perfect week to book a vacation?

We’re wishing to be back in the warm weather after all the snow from that blizzard last week!  The picturesque river ways of Watertown Massachusetts got our attention when we scouted this location for a shoot with AAA. It provided the perfect backdrop for the concept of this ad campaign. As the Indresano team set up for the shoot, we encountered a few little web-footed surprises. Take a look!

Paving a Common Path

It’s amazing what can be accomplished when we all work together! Naturally, we felt so proud and inspired after completing this project for Medicine Wheel Productions. Just last year the Edward Ingersoll Browne Fund awarded Medicine Wheel with a grant to install an accessible, paved path connecting the Boston National Historical Park. We couldn’t be happier to help Medicine Wheel promote their goal of having 600 engraved bricks donated to line the path. We tried our best to capture the essence of the project and help spread awareness to have bricks donated. Check out our finished video below and see what a great time we had!


Here is the final video we produced!

The best miserable day we’ve had

A mix of freezing rain, wind, and snow really put a damper on our shoot for the Pine Street Inn, but it turned out to be exactly what we needed! Shooting the promo piece for the Pine Street Inn in such dismal weather conditions not only gave us the opportunity to bring our video concept to life, but also gave us the chance to experience what it was like to be exposed to such harsh elements for an extended period of time. Going into the shoot, no one could have predicted the feelings we would all have at the end of the day. There was an overall greater appreciation for the warm homes we are fortunate to return to each night. We felt an extreme sense of pride creating such a strong awareness video for the Pine Street Inn to help fight homelessness. Take a look through our photos and experience what this long but fulfilling day was like!

Re-Imagining the Female Form

Renaissance artists made paintings of her, Da Vinci and Michaelangelo evoked her from blocks of Carrara marble, photographers of the last 2 centuries captured her on film, musicians composed melodies about her, her beauty and form shown on the silver screen have dazzled audiences from around the world since the first movie reel was set in motion. She is the quintessential representation of biological perfection. Today, entire industries are developed that focus on providing care and health improvements for women. For our most recent project, Michael Indresano Photography has teamed up with an advanced medical imaging corporation who is the leader in defining the standard for women’s health on a journey of re-imagination.

Mayo Bowl 2014 with the New England Patriots

We were honored to be invited as guests to the Mayo Bowl last night, a fundraiser held by New England Patriot Jerod Mayo to raise money for the Boston Medical Center.  It was such a great time hanging out with the players, as we laughed, ate, and of course took photos, all for a great cause!

Timberland Waterproof Technology

When it rained, it poured as we captured a short lifestyle video of Timberland’s Waterproof Technology in action! We learned to embrace nature as it comes and enjoy the good things. The best part of the shoot was having the option to stay dry and deciding not to.
