  • Seaport Salon Facials

    Seaport Salon and Day Spa

    Who doesn’t like a day at the spa? Everyone should treat themselves to a full body pampering once in a while. This shoot was produced for my friend Susan Mulvihill Meldrum, owner/operator of The Seaport Salon and Day Spa, located on Lynn Harbor in Lynn, Massachusetts.                                   When I did the site survey and checked out the interior, I knew immediately that I wanted […]

    Temple of Heavenly Happiness – Macomber Productions

    Thian Hock Keng, the “Temple of Heavenly Happiness” is the oldest Hokkien Chinese temple in Singapore. It was built from 1839-42 and dedicated to Ma Zu, the Chinese goddess of the sea. Sailors would seek her advice before embarking on voyages because of the widely held belief that she could predict the weather. Since I am a big fan of both history and architecture… I decided to check it out with my Canon T2i and my GorillaPod. On the morning […]

    Macomber Productions Returns to Singapore

    Macomber Productions recently returned to Singapura, which is the Malay name for Singapore, meaning “The Lion City.” The Merlion statue, with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, watches over the city from Marina Bay at One Fullerton Place. It’s surrounded by Marina Park, the Esplanade, the Fullerton Hotel and the new Marina Sands Resort, three tall structures connected with a green roof deck designed in the shape of a Chinese character. Lazily winding it’s way […]

  • Boston Marathon Finish Line Bridge photo by Mo Tate

    Boston Marathon Photo Bridge “BTS” Blog

    To the news photojournalist the Boston Marathon isn’t about training for months in advance of the big day. Nor is it about shopping for fancy new running shoes and matching running attire.  For us it’s all about stringing and tie wrapping long video and audio cables under VIP stands and along the filthy gutters of Boylston Street. It’s about lugging heavy equipment up steep, rickety and narrow steps to the staging platform where around two dozen photogs will claim their tiny footprint and camp out  in […]

    “Notes On Video” Flour Bakery Promo

    I first met blogger Michael Murie when he answered one of my tweets on twitter I sent putting out the call for a crew and a glidecam for a music video I was producing for my friend Dave Munro and his band, Air Traffic Controller. Michael sent back a DM asking if he could shoot a “behind the scenes” video for his blog “Notes On Video” while I was working on our video, “Brightest Moon.” I said, “Yeah sure. Come down!” […]

    Rick Macomber on The Steve Katsos Show

    So here I am doing some shtick for a handheld camera in a dressing room at Arlington Cable studios with funny man Steve Katsos. We’re going over the pronunciation of my last name while Steve preps for his weekly cable TV program: The Steve Katsos Show. How did I get here? Me? A guy who always works behind the lens? Rewind to months earlier when I had agreed to shoot a music video for my friend Dave Munro’s band, Air […]

    Northeastern Undergrad Macomber Productions Promo

    Northeastern University contracted Macomber Productions to produce this new promotional film for their website. We were on a tight schedule but managed to get most of the shoot done in one day, including the b roll. For this shoot we used a combination of softbox tungsten light for some of the interviews and soft natural window light with 56K backlight for others. Since the schedule was tight and there was minimal setup time for lighting, it was key to have […]
