A quote from DiMaggio – Recalling My Adventures as a Working Photographer from the 60’s to present day. The book describes my career working for publications such as SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, TIME MAGAZINE, HBO, rapidly followed by a brilliant career in Corporate and Advertising. It’s also about how photography has evolved over the years.
FILL THE FRAME goes into detail about the many people I have photographed – celebrities, sports figures as well as many others and my experiences working with them as well as the stories behind the photographs.
Book is $20 plus $4 shipping. You can pay by check, paypal or credit card (through Paypal.)
Had a wonderful opportunity to photograph a Hanna Q Dance Performance the other evening. Used a small mirrorless camera. Pretty amazing quality. Dance Performance probably had something to do with it. If you have a chance make it your business to support them.
In November of 2014 dimaggio-kalishworkshops brought a group to Cuba. We called the trip “Photographer’s Eye on The People of Cuba.” In the small town of Cienfuegos I met a lovely and passionate artist by the name of Annia Alonso. We exchanged contact information.
One day I received an e mail asking if I would be interested in representing her in the States. After much deliberation, I figured why not? Artists helping Artists. I get it! Annia is part of the National Union of Writer and Artists (UNEAC) and this is how we first met. She has a Gallery nearby. In a very short time with many texts exchanging information back and forth we became friends. She told me a delightful story about meeting Jimmy Buffett at her first art show where the owner of the Gallery was friends with him. At the time she did not know who Jimmy was but was invited by the host of the Gallery to stay afterwards and play dominos with Jimmy as her partner. He gave her a CD of his music. She came back the next day and he was still there and he bought one of her engravings. The one he liked best was called Islands. He encouraged her to organize a show in America.
I am including some of my favorite engravings & Paintings (first three are engravings) of Annia’s. She has many more. If anyone has an interest in her work for purchase or for a show please contact me directly.
Just for the record dimaggio-kalishworkshops is planning another trip to Cuba October 19-26 2015 We still have some spaces available. If you like to join us please contact us as soon as possible. Click here for our Upcoming Cuba Trip

Dear Joe and JoAnne,
First of all, Congratulations to us all for President Obama’s announcement today to begin normalizing relations with Cuba. It has been visits like yours that have helped change the view of ordinary U.S. Americans towards Cuba and our relations with Cuba.
Thanks to all our friends who went to Cuba with us under our People to People license for making this happen as well.
For those of you who’ve never tried Nik’s software plug-ins I would highly recommend them. They are fabulous. With the right photos they are truly amazing. All I can say is don’t misuse them but for the occasional use on a particular photo they can really add that special something. In addition their Snapseed app for the Iphone is also a one-of-a-kind app. All the other copycat apps don’t compare in my opinion.
