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.

A Very Special Person























Every once in a while you come across a very special person. One of my student’s Ann Raine, has had an extremely versatile career. Her travels have taken her all over the world. She’s as comfortable in a high level meeting with a Fortune 500 Company as she is making environmental portraits on the streets of NYC. I’ve recently asked Anne to become one of the the new board members for our DiMaggio/Kalish Photographic Retreats, along with Brian Struble and Larry Malang.  




Holiday Greetings




Would like to thank all of our great students who sent us greetings for a wonderful Holiday Season.  


The Dyna-lite alumni group has recently got in touch with us and requested a second advanced Dyna-lite studio workshop.  We will be adding it to our 2011 schedule. For those interested date will be announced in an upcoming newsletter.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
