I’m very excited to announce that I’m launching a photo workshop through a new business, CubaWorkshops.com, this April 27-May 5th! We will visit Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad for 9 days and 8 nights. It’ll be an amazing time as we will be there for the huge May Day gathering in Havana as well as enjoying the sights around the city during the Havana Biennial. We will also head through Cienfuegos to the colonial gem of a town, Trinidad, with its sugar plantation ruins, cobblestone streets and waterfalls.
Our unique trip is in cooperation with Sony, who will provide each participant the option of trying out a camera and two lenses for the 9 day/8 night trip. Free! It’s open for both amateurs and professionals – camera owners of any brand. We will be accompanied by a Sony Pro Support representative who will be there to answer any questions you may have about the Sony gear.
Early-bird pricing will end in a week, so if you’re interested, please check your calendars and sign up through the site. I already have people signing up and I expect this to be a sold-out trip, so don’t delay. I’m limiting the trip to 10 photographers. If you can’t make this one, there’s a newsletter sign-up option as well.
As many of you know, I’ve spent over 20 years going back and forth to Cuba as a student, journalist, tour leader and family member. Creating greater understanding between our two countries is written into my DNA, so this business is an outgrowth of a lot of professional and personal time spent in Cuba. It will be a curated experience for photographers, led by myself and Orietta García, a professional tour guide in Havana and a former producer of one of the country’s most famous musicians.
Please share the word for anyone looking for an adventure!
Thank you so much!
