About Us

Maui commercial photographers is owned and operated by Joe Dalessandro, a native of NY who committed his college career to learning televison production and spent his formative years working as a P.A. in NY's film industry in the 80's. Seeking a more rewarding career and a less hectic environment, Joe moved on to Maui and started his first photography buisness working with destination wedding couples and various commercial clients including several celebrity weddings, a stint as the official photographer for the PGA and a recurring gig shooting the Ironman Trathalon on the Kona coast of the Big Island, among other things. Contracting "Rock Fever" in 1992, a particularly debilitating malaise in which the patient exhibits a strange feeling that there's something going on elsewhere that they are missing out on, Joe and his new wife Co moved to Santa Fe NM and lived in the bosom of the high west desert for some 10 years working as the in house photographer for the largest private employer in Northern New Mexico and photographing retsaurants, food and artwork for major publications. When at last the need for some humidity and blue ocean access became too intense to ignore, Joe and Co packed up the kids and moved back to Maui Nui in 2005 and resurrected their successful photography business. Having cultivated a loyal client base since then and receiving their rock fever innoculations, Joe and Co intend to ride this beautiful wave all the way out to the end on this spectacular island of Maui.
