WBUR Featuring Ira Glass

May 18, 2015

The opportunity to enjoy dinner with a roomful of the best reporters, story tellers, and benefactors in town happens annually at the WBUR gala – and this year’s special guest was none other than radio host, producer and core personality of ‘This American Life’ – Ira Glass. Other highlights of the evening included presentations by some of our favorite hosts including Tom Ashbrook and Robin Young, a special MOTH story by Tricia Rose Burt, as well as finally putting a face to our Con Salsa man, José Massó, who celebrated his 40th year on air with WBUR.

Brian Carpenter

April 17, 2015

Over the years I’ve worked with Brian Carpenter, he’s made a lasting impression both solo and with his groups – The Confessions, Ghost Train Orchestra, Beat Circus. He is an artists’ artist and a big picture thinker; every idea is visually well-researched and referenced before we shoot, from location to emotion, Brian knows what he wants and is a stellar art director. This project called for a darker, less theatrical vibe than in the past, and took place primarily in studio for more control of light and shadow.

Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program

March 23, 2015

A U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development report recently cited that Massachusetts has the fastest growing homeless population in the country. BHCHP’s clinicians, case managers, and behavioral health professionals serve over 12,000 of Boston’s most vulnerable—and most resilient—citizens annually. Pangaro Beer designed the space for their fundraiser, and we helped put a face on a population that is in constant danger of being invisible.

Scott Arrington, DJ

February 26, 2015

Scott Arrington is a friend and collaborator. I remember first meeting him at an event we were both working – I shot & he spun for Murray Hill Talent at a Cambridgeside wedding. I was struck by his humor and calm cool demeanor, his rock-solid timing and intuition. Recently we discussed elevating his image as a DJ to represent the club angle, and set against the backdrop of Whisky Saigon on a moody late February morning, we did just that.
