An unforgettable learning experience in one of the most picturesque places on the planet.
My primary concern is to open your eyes to the diversity of photographic vision.
Cuba is bursting with culture, nature and ‘joie de vivre’.
Photographing Cuba offers us the rare opportunity to capture its warm people alongside its natural beauty and breathtaking architecture. Relaxed Caribbean island culture mixed with the big city life of Havana, where American vintage cars from the 50s drive past you on Havana’s Malecon. Havana is straddling between socialism and capitalism, decay and glamour, seditious colours and melancholic interiors, racing in many opposite directions due to its slower development into an uncertain future.You’ll learn to capture some of it’s magic, the timeworn beautiful architecture, the colourful people, and the pulsating music, dance and art scene.
The photography workshops&masterclasses with Jörg Reichardt combine a very exciting visual tour with on-site work in a mindful photographic approach to connect your photography and spirit by expanding and deepening your vision. Joerg teaches you his philosophy in photography – how to develop concepts, work on the street, make portraits, work with body and movement, photograph with natural and artificial light, and bring images to life in post-production.
- Compact and easy goingDown to earth and practically oriented.You will learn that ingenious photos are less about technical know-how and more about using your most valuable instrument: Your eyes
- Small Group SizeThe masterclass is limited to 5 - 8 participants.The small size of this group will allow Joerg to offer each participant very dedicated photographic instruction and daily photo review sessions as well as a very exciting visual tour and program in Havana.
- ExperiencePhotographyThe masterclass is open to photographers at all levels who are basically technically self-sufficient, and passionate about improving their image making, in a mindful approach.
Cuba is a country full of contrasts, colours and cultures. It is a country of vitality and indefinable beauty, wonderful suited for photography.
The upcoming photo workshops have basically the same learning program, we only vary the locations and give each one a focus and adapt to cultural events in Cuba.
The HAVANA & TRINIDAD workshop focuses more on street and urban landscape photography. The HAVANA UNPLUGGED workshop is inspired by the simultaneous HAVANA JAZZ FESTIVAL and focuses more on music, rhythms and portraits. The HAVANA BODY & SOUL workshop is inspired by Cuban dance and focuses more on dance, body and movement.
