Author David Daniel in the Studio

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.
