Photography courses in Cuba

My passion for travelling took me to Cuba in 1998 and since then, I’ve covered hundreds of miles walking streets and absorbing a light, an inspiration hard to find in any other country.

My passion for photography led me to organize and manage a series of photography photo tours in Cuba, teaching my specialties: documentary and street photography.

Taking an intensive photography course in Cuba, mainly in La Havana, has some great benefits over other type of courses. The main advantage is that this location is a paradise for street photography. Also, people from Cuba are extremely friendly and welcoming.

There is no better place to learn and practice photography. Examining and improving our results every day is the right way to quickly step up our level.

Photography courses in Cuba

My courses for small groups have a duration of 8 days, but I also do individual and customized workshops. In both cases my main mission is to show how to work as a professional. This is the main goal in my courses.


  • Use of a camera, technique and tricks
  • Workflow: From taking a picture to the printing process
  • How to be professionally prepared before starting to take photographs
  • How to interact with people on the streets in order to get great pictures: tricks, non-verbal language, dress codes, etc.
  • Learn how to distinguish great photographs from the “simply beautiful” ones.
  • Work review, editing and retouching to get a narrative speech for the public to understand and enjoy.

Everyone can take good photographs, everyone has big cameras or mobile devices, but not everyone has good stories. We have to remember that great photographers always have great stories to tell.
