WORKING PHILOSOPHY ( in the words of Louis)

After many years in Cuba, I´m still surprised by how all tourist gather around the same places, which is why I have designed my photography travels to see another authentic Cuba, visiting the best photography spots.

Photography , Cuba and teaching, are my passions. I teach my travelers/students the culture of my country and how to capture it with their cameras/smartphones.

Travelers come to my Cuban photo workshops hoping to take beautiful travel photographs.
I don´t only help get astonishing shots, but I also show them the professional way of telling photo stories by creating sequences with a selection of their best photos, "and reach beyond travel photography".



I facilitate access to Cuban culture, an you will be immersed in the extreme kindness and embrace of the Cuban people.
I aim to transform the traveler´perceptions of the Cuban experience. Participants sometimes arrive with pre-conceived notions of the country and leave with a much more profound understanding, wich is very different from what they arrived with, as well as with a different way of understanding and working with documentary and artistic photography.

These photography stories are not only aimed at showing the changes in Cuba, but also create a historical record to understand this island that is so familiar, but still completely mysterious and unknown.
