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!

Take a look at our finished commercial!

When a location is too beautiful for words…shoot video instead!

A weekend spent working isn’t so bad when you get to stay in a mansion like this one!  Our team spent days on location with the best crew and equipment to make sure we captured the breathtaking and magnificent essence of this home.  Stay tuned for the final product, we are beyond excited to reveal it!

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.

Taking The Show On The Road With Timberland

Timberland Company boot photo shoot - CommercialPhotography_Boston

These boots are definitely made for walking.

There is no doubt each time we step out of the door it’s an adventure. This time was with our good friends at Timberland. Shooting outdoors has its special challenges but between the clamor of traffic and curious onlookers we got down to business capturing the right photo environment. Respect & appreciation goes to the Boston Police Department for their assistance in crowd control while the Team worked their magic.

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!

Dreaming of a Winter Vacation

Now that we have dug ourselves out from the blizzard of 2013 here in Boston, it seems fitting that we start fantasizing about going on a warm vacation. We were contacted by the creative team at AAA to make a series of images that would transform you from the routine of everyday to a place you would rather be. Here are the first two in the series with more to come!

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?
