Our 8 day photo adventure workshop roundtrip starts with an in-depth exploration of the backstreets of it's exotic neighbourhoods including Havana Centro, Old Havana and Vedado. We will visit a famous boxing gym, the oceanside promenade Malecón, and the Prado. 

The next destination after Havana will the the city of Santa Clara, Cuba's 5th largest city which is located in the most central region of the country.  It’s known for its revolutionary landmarks. In the city's west, the Che Guevara Mausoleum is the resting place of Che Guevara and other fighters. It’s crowned by a massive bronze statue of the revolutionary leader.

We will then continue our journey to the colonial, perfectly preserved Spanish settlement of Trinidad. Trinidad is a town in central Cuba, known for its colonial old town and cobblestone streets. Its neo-baroque main square, Plaza Mayor, is surrounded by grand colonial buildings. From Trinidad we will travel back to Havana to complete our roundtrip.

Both the home stay in a beautiful Cuban casa particular with gorgeous architecture, and all aspects of the daily itinerary are carefully put together to offer photographers access to the vibrant and authentic daily life of the amazing Cuban people. 

We’re passionate about teaching the different aspects of photography. A good amount of time will be spent on reviewing your work during the travel with a detailed feedback and assistance from our side. Our aim is to help you to become comfortable photographing strangers in unfamiliar environment, recognise favourable photography situations, judge the quality of natural light and adjust to low light situations. Our Ebook will be provided to you to help with your learning and we’ll make sure you return home with a beautiful photo essay.
