Elizabeth’s Senior Session and her Smiling Eyes

Every person I photograph has a defining look and it’s typically centered on their eyes.

It’s true what Shakespeare once wrote “Your eyes are the window to your soul ”

Now this doesn’t mean that wide eyes or small eyes or blue eyes (or what ever) really show much of anything about someone. It is what we see when we look into one’s eyes .

Happy, smiling eyes. Amazed, surprised eyes. Sad, quiet eyes. Caring, nurturing eyes. These are the emotions we see, we feel and experience when we look into someones eyes .

A photograph captures a moment and holds it there for us to see and enjoy, now and for generations to come. So it’s important that we choose the image to print which  conveys that emotion that was felt when it was taken.

Elizabeth is a 2017 senior. Her eyes smiled in every image I took during her senior portrait session. I’m looking forward to seeing the prints from the day and hearing how they brighten the mood in the room where they are hung.



Fernando Morales Norwood High Graduate

“Rest in sweet peace Fern, and begin your journey as your family’s guardian angel, we’ll take care of keeping your legacy alive down here” #cancersucks

These are some comments from Fernando Morales’ friends the day he died. 

Fernando Morales was a 2013 graduate of Norwood High School in Norwood MA. 

I had the great pleasure of photographing his senior high school portraits in the summer of 2012. And I am truly honored that the family chose one of the images for the program at his funeral

He lived his life focused on helping others and inspired everyone he touched. 

I remember Fernando’s senior session very well. His cancer had been in remission, but had come back and he was weak. I kept thinking that we should make the session as easy as possible for him. But he wanted to go to all the usual spots around my studio’s outdoor locations.

He was a very serious person and had a beautiful smile. I thought as we were shooting his pictures “this is such a solid person” – confident, strong, proud and un-shakeable.  

This slideshow includes some photos of Fernando from his senior portrait session and comments from his family and friends which were posted to his Facebook and Instagram pages the day he died; January 16, 2015, and for a few days after as well.


Senior High Portrait Photography by Walpole MA High School Senior Portrait Photographer, Dan Busler {Sydney MacQuilken}

Norwood High School senior; Sydney’s portrait session just flew by … but we got some great images.

Norwood High 2k15 Senior Portrait Photography by Walpole 2015 Senior Yearbook Photographer, Dan Busler Walpole MA {Mairead Kerrigan}

Pretty much every senior session starts out on a mission to get that shot for the yearbook – after which we can relax and have some fun!  

So Mairead’s session started out fairly typically … but those yearbook images we got turned out great … she was working that smile like a pro.

Thanks Mairead – you totally nailed it. 


Norwood High School Senior Picture Photography by Walpole MA High School Portrait Photographer, Dan Busler {Katherine Gillis}

Katherine’s a 2k15 Senior at Norwood High School in Norwood MA. 

It seems like only yesterday she was … younger !  

I know that many Senior portrait photographers focus on getting that senior portrait … “get the pretty picture and send them home” . 

And I do too. But then, I know that there is more to capture. 

Senior pictures mark one of the biggest milestones in their lives … and in their Parent’s lives too. 

I try to capture the person who is on the edge of their next great adventure … which will be a trade or going off to college. 

Katherine has a great smile and a serious look as well. 

Norwood Senior High Photography by Walpole MA Senior Photographer, Dan Busler {John Jeffery}

John’s a senior in high school, an excellent guitarist and an entrepreneur. Oh, and he has a model for a girl friend.

This sounds like Bond … John Bond ! HA!!

Medfield High Senior Photography by Walpole MA Senior Portrait Photographer, Dan Busler {Sam}

I told Sam that I saw a CEO position in his future. There’s a certain quiet confidence in the way he looks at the camera … and that’s how we get these great images. 

But for now, he has to finish his Senior year of high school. The rest?  We’ll have to wait to find out.

Norwood Party Photography by Walpole Event Photographer, Dan Busler {Tom Bruhl}

It’s time to Feature one of the awesome entertainers that I get to meet and work with … 

Tom Bruhl … The Music that Makes You Move !  – well that’s a fact I can attest to.

I recently photographed an event where Tom provided the entertainment.  Although Tom performs with a trio – this night he was a “one-man-band” – playing sax and guitar (not simultaneously) along with backing tracks that he recorded at his studio. 

It was interesting to find out that we both graduated from Berklee College of music Magna Cum Laude … the same year!  

All I can say is if you need a great DJ, who plays live instruments and sings … it’s kind of the whole package – you should check out Tom.  

Of course this is after you’ve hired me to photograph the event of course..!  

Norwood Theatrical Photography by Walpole Theatrical Photographer, Dan Busler {Rozenkrantz and Guildenstern}

This is kind of a “Throw Back Thursday” post.

The show, Rozencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is (in my opinion) one of the most challenging plays that a high school group can take on. The dialogue is rapid fire and really hard to perform. It’s also wicked hard for the audience to understand! HA !

Norwood High School in Norwood MA presented the show as one of the final performances of their 2005 school year season. It proved to be a showcase for a talented group of students.  I still feel that the actors didn’t realize the great job that they did with this very difficult material.
