Just a Moment in Time – Priceless

Many artists agree that there is beauty in life’s candid moments.

Unposed people, just interacting, conversing and enjoying each other’s company often makes for the most interesting images.

Many years ago I learned an important lesson about capturing the beauty of the candid moment.  Look behind you, because stuff is happening there too.

I photographed this image recently at a backyard party. Everywhere you look in this image, there is something happening.  Small groups of people having conversations, laughing, some discussing more serious subjects, some are looking away, ready to move on to the next group and their next discussion.

So, even though this image is dark and grainy (shot at ISO 32000!), it caught my attention. You see, it’s not always the image with the perfect exposure and perfect pose that makes it precious, but the contect of the image itself.

Lifestyle Photography, Show the Love and Keep those Memories Safe

“A Day in the Life” photo session is just that. From the time you get up until you go to bed, your day is filled with life.

And as normal and regular you might think it is, there’s a heck of a lot going on. Then you add other people ( spouse, kids, friends, co-workers) and the stuff you do ( hang out, play, talk, laugh, cry, yell, play in the pool, read the paper … get interrupted, eat, feed the cat, take a walk, look at some flowers and show them to your kids, pick those flowers to bring home to your spouse, see their reaction, get a hug and kiss … you see where this is going, your life is awesome!)

OK, so now you’ve got all these epic “day in the life” pictures of your awesome life what are you going to do with them?

First, realize how nice these captured memories of this epic day will be to look at in a month. Then realize how great they will be to look at in a year and how precious they will be in 10 years ,,, and 30 years when your kids are Grandparents and in 60 years when you are gone. They are no longer nice, or normal or just snapshots, they are so precious that the album they’re in is put carefully in a special box.

Boston Religious Event Photography by Walpole Event Photographer, Dan Busler {St Ann Neponset}

Confirmation is a sacrament in the Catholic church when the teens are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and are strengthened in their Christian life. 

It is a milestone in their lives as young adults. 

They have a sponsor; who is typically a Parent or sibling. But it can also be someone who had an effect on their lives.  


So I’ve seen everything from a religious leader to a police officer who helped then when they strayed into a possible life in crime.


St Ann Parish Neponset in Dorchester MA was the site of a recent Confirmation celebration that I photographed. I love photographing any religious event. It is calming and family focused. 

The values that are most important in life and the ones that we too often take for granted.

Boston Theatrical Headshot Photography by Walpole Headshot Photographer, Dan Busler {The perfect headshot}

What type of headshot do you need ? 

The answer is “the perfect one” to get you the gig. 

OK, so we get together and we have a fabulous session and you have that perfect headshot. 


And you show up for the acting or modeling call … you hand it in, they look intently at your headshot … look up at you and then they ask the dreaded question “Do you have anything else ?” ( Meaning another pose, or expression or outfit or background) 

Terror!  Ah … that’s my “perfect headshot” it’s … freaking perfect! 

If you don’t have a variety of other shots to offer they will whip out their “point and shoot” or phone and take a shot of you … with your hair and makeup … “not perfect”. That picture gets stapled to your headshot and resume and … “Next !”  

You can’t know what they are looking for – but you can come prepared. So in addition to your perfect headshot you can have images of you smiling, serious, formal, casual, “waist up” and “full length”,  fierce, sweet, urban chic and “flannel”.  





The comp card can also be the answer – it’s a quick look at all your looks. 

Remember – the purpose of your headshot is so that they will remember you.  Versatile, epic, handsome / beautiful / stunning / approachable / awesome  you.

Walpole Headshot and Model Photography by Walpole MA Photographer, Dan Busler {Christine Vlahos, Leo Blais}

If you ask me which session we’ve photographed here at Dan Busler Photography in Walpole MA was my favorite … I’d probably say my last session! 

But sometimes the sessions are amazing! 

I’ve been photographing Christine Vlahos and Leo Blais for many years. Headshots, theatrical productions, their senior session …  Both are now away at college, but I thought that it was time for a get together and luckily they both agreed ! 

We ended hanging out for five hours – photographing in so many locations around the studio and came out with some truly excellent images.  Images that show both how cool they are in front of the camera and how close they are as friends. 

I want this to be a yearly … bi-annual … semi-monthly  event. I hope that they’ll agree. 

Norwood High School Senior Portrait Photography by Walpole MA High School Senior Photographer, Dan Busler {Isabella LeSavage}

In addition to being an awesome young woman, Isabella … or Izzy as she’s known is also a dancer. 

So I knew that we would get some great pictures of her grace and beautiful poses …. and we did !
