Norwood High School Theatrical Photography by Walpole Theatrical Photographer, Dan Busler {Performance}

Each year, beginning just a few days after the school year ends, the rehearsals for the Fall show begins for the drama students at Norwood High School in Norwood, MA. 

This is their summer vacation, because this is what they love to do. 

Yes, they go on their family vacations and work their summer jobs, but when they aren’t somewhere else, they are rehearsing.

Here is a look at the 2012 – 2013 season, the plays aren’t in order. 

Oh, yea… you better grab a cup of coffee and find a comfy chair, cause this fusion slideshow video is 12 ( yes twelve) minutes long.

And by the end of the video you too will understand why this is one great group of actors.

The Norwood Alumni Choir held their annual Christmas Concert on December 23, 2012 at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Norwood MA.

The choir is made up of almost fifty former students at Norwood High School and this year was directed by Daniel Mahoney, a 2007 graduate.

These events remind us of the important things and I’m already looking forward to next year!

A highlight of the evening was when former choir director; now Director of Fine Arts, Cathy Connor-Moen joined the choir to direct a number.

The Regency Plaza Apartments in Providence Rhode Island recently held their annual Holiday Party for the staff and guests. 

The food (which was almost all prepared in house) was fabulous, the entertainment was great, the atmosphere was lively and I was there to capture it all.

Norwood High School presented Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog – which was taken from the Emmy winning, All-Star … cult followed production written by Joss and Jed Whedon ( they’re really famous!). 

The show … or “sing-along blog”  is about Dr. Horrible, Penny, Captain Hammer ( said with a super hero echo) and lots of crazy characters. 

As you look at the pictures from the show I dare you to figure it all out! 

It truly was a fabulous production which was directed by Norwood High alumnus, Ian Cardoni.

Norwood Musical Performance Photography by Walpole Musical Performance Photographer, Dan Busler {Dream Secoya aka Sean Regan}

I was fortunate to catch … and photograph a recent performance by Dream Secoya aka Sean Regan at Perks Coffee Shop in Norwood MA (December 13, 2012)

Sean played material from his current album and a few from his new album which will be completed soon.

The coffee shop performance circuit is alive, but saddly not well attended. 

Think back to the days of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Bruce Springsteen … yea, I’ve seen Bruce perform in a coffee shop. Back when he was driving across the bridge from NJ into PA with his band in an old station wagon for a gig. The next year he was on the cover of Time and Newsweek and everything changed.

You see, the venue, small as it may be is often a launching pad for an entertainer.


 So let’s hope that one day we can smile and remember that night when we saw Sean Reagan in a little coffee shop.  I know that he will never forget the friends who came out to see him


Here is a link to some of his music

Boston Portrait Photography by Walpole Photographer, Dan Busler {Calendar}

I am writing this on New Year’s Eve 2012 -2013.

And I prepare to ring in the New Year I think about all the years gone by. I have been more than lucky to be sure.

Each year, I create a calendar with images from a few of the photo sessions I’ve done … more as a celebration of the moments I’ve been asked to capture. To say that I put my heart and soul into each session is such an understatement.

It’s always hard – but creating this year’s calendar was a labor of love but was also especially hard to pick which images to include of the hundreds and thousands and millions and … well not millions – but lots of images of the beautiful people and events I was honored to photograph. 

So next year, I‘ve decided that I want a billboard, placed prominently  on a major road so that I can celebrate a 1000 images on my calendar! 

My thanks go out to all of you for choosing me to photograph you . You rock!

Now, about that billboard … any one got one that they aren’t using ??? HA!

Jo is an actor with a medical background … which makes him the perfect person for those TV shows and movies where the actors need to say those long diagnostic terms. And he’ll actually know what they mean !

Like “Gastroesophagealduodenoscopy” … which Jo mentioned he can pronounce … and I do not want to know what it means … or is for that matter … HA!

Pamela has a smile that can light up a room … or the great outdoors if that’s where you are at the moment! She’s a cheerleader so I guess that just goes with the job.
