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”.

Check out the review by writer Dean Johnson in the May/June issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine.

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.

I worked with Stylist Lysa Pelletier of Team in the studio as she arranged and propped an assortment of jeans and accessories for the shoot. I especially liked the barn door she arrived with for our background.

Just before their unfortunate fire I was at the Cedardale Health and Fitness Center in Haverhill MA for Merrimack Valley Magazine.

Alex and Aaron Molda (keeping his eye on the ball) along with Althea Bradley posed just before their lesson, and later I captured Josephine McKone making her return hit.
