GREAT DAY TONS OF FUN!

DynaLite’s Peter Poremba


To All the Ships at Sea –

Yes, I’m late with this blog… the last few days have been a little crazy.  Let me extend a thank you to my dear friend Peter Poremba, for hosting me at the DynaLite booth at Photo Plus.  It’s a little known fact that Peter is a great administrator, and the ultimate source of studio/location lighting. Yes that’s him in the tutu.  As the truth be known, it was actually my Tutu but since  I gained some weight the tutu no longer fits me. So, Peter agreed to put the tutu on to help promote my book FILL THE FRAME!  I would like to thank all my friends who came by to say hello and all the new people who stopped by to purchase my book.  By the way, the new battery operated Baja is very sweet and shoots TTL.  Like I always say DynaLite is the best lighting equipment ounce for ounce, pound for pound, dollar for dollar.  Not a commercial a fact!

“Recalling His Adventures as a Working Photographer from the 60’s to present day. The book describes his 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 he has photographed – celebrities, sports figures as well as so many others and his experiences working with them, and the stories behind the photographs.
Book is $20 plus $4 shipping. You can pay by check, paypal or credit card (through Paypal.)

Wow, what a great way to get my face on my blog.  Craig Leaper has been with me on several photographic adventures.  He joined us for Chinese New Year last week.  I’m very fond of a few of these photos.

Sandra Flickstein

To all the ships at sea,

I don’t know who said it first, but I believe the quote goes something like this, “I’d rather be lucky then great”… something like that.  Well, last Sunday Chinese New Year, the year of the sheep, ten photographers got very lucky.  Sub-zero weather sky rocketed up to 40 degrees.  My God, a Spring Day!  One of the photographers was Sandra Flickstein, she was with me on a few of the workshops and certainly did a good job at Chinese Year.  Kick back with a cup of coffee…or a glass of wine, and enjoy her photos, I certainly have.

It appears Sandra caught me shooting with two cameras. The new Go Pro and the Canon 5D Mark III  in my right hand.

Please see paragraph from Merri Ansara Director at Common Ground Travel Agency.

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.

Now I’d like to offer all my personal thank you to all of our friends who went to Cuba with us under our People to People license.  You had first-hand experience in making this happen.

Our next trip to Cuba will be April 13 -20 2015. We hope you decide to join us.
