The average speed of a hockey puck flying across the ice in a NHL game is between 80-110 mph. What does it take to stop a projectile traveling at such a velocity? The answer is MORE speed. We found out just how that lighting reflex works when famed goalie Tuukka Rask from the Boston Bruins came to the studio for a video and photo shoot.


We had to get in close while filming the eyes that see what most people can’t.


Michael preps a photograph of Tuukka adjusting his Franklin gloves.


You have to be prepared before approaching a goal guarded by this stare!


Nothing like a little smoke to add to the mood!


After the shoot, Tuukka got down low for some knee hockey with a few of his younger fans.


He wrapped up the day with autographs for the kids who attended the shoot!

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!

These Boots are Made for Walking

And walked they did! – all over Boston to four separate locations as we took it on the road with Timberland for a shoot featuring their latest style. As if that wasn’t enough, we brought our love for pyrotechnics out with us too. We created smoke and steam just to add a little urban flavor to the landscape.


Straight from the Tear Sheet.

Who would have thought that a public alley way could be used so creatively?

Even Officer Bobby got a little curious.

Heatin’ Up with the Boston Bruins Ice Girls

…To say that we had fun with the Boston Bruins Ice Girls while they were in the studio is an understatement – we had an absolute blast! These girls brought so much energy to the set and we loved capturing that through both photography and video.

Back on the Ice

The Bruins drop the puck tonight to kick off their run for the Stanley Cup, so we wanted to share the photo shoot we did with the Ice Girls. When the NHL lockout ended, we skated into high gear on short notice to get everything ready. Fortunately, we knew the drill as we did the Bruins and Ice Girls team shoot the season before at the TD Garden. Enjoy and Let’s Go Bruins! Boston STRONG!



Looking Tough!


Photo assistant Anthony works the fan for perfect hair flip.


The Ice Girls are proud to wear the Bruins logo on their uniform.


The iPad tethered to the camera was a huge hit! The girls loved seeing the images as they were captured in real time.



Michael knows how to work the poses.


Ready to hit the ice!


We, and the entire city of Boston were happy that the Bruins dropped the puck in 2013!

Party Like it’s 1992!

We had a great turnout for the studio’s 20th Anniversary celebration.  Thanks to all of you who came out to toast to twenty years!  For those who couldn’t make it, check out the video and photos below for a glimpse into some of the night’s fun.  Some of our clients many not even recognize the space, but the party actually took place in our very own studio – transformed over just 24 hours into a Miami lounge scene right here in Southie.  A fun time was had by all.

– Click below to view the video –

Here are some of our favorite photos from the night:

Lounge areas were designed by Style Studio, and beautiful orchids, topiaries, and succulents provided by Stapleton Floral.

As a way to say thanks to his many loyal clients, Michael gave away party favors to each guest who attended the celebration.

Ice sculpture with 20th Anniversary logo created by Brookline Ice & Coal, lounge music mixed by DJ Mario (ESC Music Design), and event photography by Michael Young of StopDownFire,

We like to “roll out the red carpet” for our clients here at the studio… so we couldn’t resist doing just that for our Anniversary Party.

Above and below are some of our favorite clients who came out to celebrate with us.

A couple special ladies even flew in all the way from California to toast with Michael.

 Even Momma got the red carpet treatment!

Delectable hors d’oeuvers and flowing cocktails were provided by The Catered Affair,

From a martini bar on the patio to specialty drinks being passed inside, no one went thirsty at our party.

Everyone had plenty of cocktails and laughs throughout the night.

Smilebooth provided hours of entertainment for all.

(clockwise from left) Lauren (account exec), Michael; Millie; Caleb (studio producer); Shannyn (CFO); Jen (digital tech/assistant); and Elise (former intern) have a blast in the Smilebooth!  Thanks again to everyone who came out to celebrate this milestone with us!

20th Anniversary

It is hard to believe it has been 20 years since I opened my first studio! It feels like yesterday that I welcomed my first client at 355 Congress St., in the late spring of 1992. I have enjoyed every day and every shoot; it has never felt like work to me.

I would like to thank each and every client I have had the privilege to work with over the last 20 years.  It is largely due to their loyalty and innovative ideas that the last 20 years in business have been so rewarding.  I’m not in this alone; my staff of professionals makes it possible for me to focus on what I love most: capturing the perfect image.  It goes without saying that without the support of my family and friends, I would not have achieved this level of success.

Although many things have changed in the photography industry since I snapped my first photo with a Pentax K1000, the way I think about my clients has remained consistent. From day one, my philosophy has been to bring my clients’ vision to life within the comforts of my studio.

My first studio at 355 Congress St.

Former producer, Heather, and I brainstorm before a shoot.

My first client Computervision, Inc., sent me around the globe for 5 weeks in 1993. I traveled with two assistants to South Korea, Italy, Germany, France, Japan (pictured) and Canada photographing CEO’s and factories for companies such as Hyundai, Siemens, Audi, and Fiat, to name a few. That’s me on the far right, with assistant Jeff to the left of me.

33 A Street Before

33 A Street After

I wanted a place where I could provide a comfortable space with all of the amenities. Luckily, I found a building that was a diamond in the rough at 33 A Street right in South Boston. This has been my home away from home since 1998 and continues to be today.

The patio area at 33 A Street became an outdoor shower for models, Sylvia and Mark, during a shoot for Crabtree & Evelyn.  Assistants Aldo (far left) and Joe (right) had a fun time too!

Hanging out with Jay Leno after I shot his portrait in Burbank, California. I found out that our families descended from the same town: Avellino, Italy!

Below are some of my favorite portraits and personalities from over the past 20 years. It’s been quite a ride – thanks again to everyone who has made it such a memorable adventure!

And here are just some of the thousands of products I’ve had so much fun shooting over the years.

I’m very excited to see what the next 20 years hold for the future of the studio.  If they are anything like the past 20, I can’t wait to get this party started.

– Michael
