This event season comes to a big finale for me at the Middlesex Community College Celebrity Forum 2017 with Red Sox Designated Hitter David Ortiz “Big Papi”.

I got Big Papi to give me a quick portrait in the green room just before all the action on stage. He was then interviewed to a full house at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium by Dan Roche, award-winning sports anchor and reporter for WBZ-TV News.

Later that night we did our usual hundreds of guest shaking hands with him before he dashed away into the night.

Vasa is the new waterfront restaurant in Salisbury MA just across the Merrimack River from Newburyport.

I met with owner Sean Toomey and head chef T. J. Bernard and did some views of their Savory Mussel bowl, Boston Strip Steak with Roasted Potatoes and Oyster Mushrooms, plus the Vasa Wings with Spicy Honey Garlic Glaze. When you get there you can start your meal with their specialty drink “A Shore Thing”.

A new guest in the studio a few weeks ago for a portrait with author and writer David Daniel.

I met David several years ago in Lowell MA for a photo session and I realized then he was the author of one of my favorite mystery novels featuring the detective Alex Rasmussen.

We planned a portrait session at my WAS studio in Lowell.

He graciously gave his time and brought some props and ideas to the session.
