January 7-17, 2017: Cuba
Visual Artistry workshop
Cost TBA, limit 10
Cuba is a photography mecca. From our time in historic Havana to the port city of Cienfuegos, to the 500 year old city of Trinidad, just down the road from the Bay of Pigs, we help guide you to the best photo ops and incredible people images, some of whom we know personally after years of visiting. We’ve established a great rapport with our guide, who knows what we look for and knows how to get us into “off the beaten path” venues. For old car and grunge enthusiasts, classic American cars from the Batista era are everywhere and range from completely refurbished to au naturale. Cojimar is one of our favorite venues, about 45 minutes from Havana, and is where Ernest Hemingway spent much of his time. Cojimar is a classic coastal town, quiet, and quintessential. The architecture in Havana is old and unmaintained, giving us the opportunity to record this period in Cuba’s history before it officially opens up to cruise ships and US tourism. When visiting, it’s easy to imagine Cuba in the 30s, 40s, and 50s when it was the Rome of the Caribbean.
Watch the slideshow below to see some of the locations we’ll visit and
the types of images you could be shooting with us in Cuba.
An opportunity not to be missed!
