Havana Photo and Classic Car Tour „Havana Popular“
A full day of photographing the different aspects of Havana’s vibrant cultural life, including a photographic tour through the streets of the city.
Joerg has been traveling to Cuba for many years, and thanks to his personal connections, you can expect to meet Cuban photographers, visit people in their homes, get a tour of a tobacco company or a boxing or ballet school, or view a live art performance. You’ll get a chance to experience the real Cuba, and to document it through photography.
The workshop is fully focused around photography. We’ll be taking you to the the most inspiring places, making use of the best light of the day. You can expect to have some incredible portrait, street, and cultural photographic opportunities.
Throughout the trip, Joerg will be there to offer guidance and advice. Since we’ll be traveling in a small group, you’ll receive personal tutoring, which ensures that it’s suitable for your level. You can expect to learn how to manage light, how to compose compelling and complex pictures, how to interact with people if you’re keen on taking their portrait. Joerg will explain his photographic vision and help you find their own. We’ll be out shooting every day, and during the evenings there are opportunities to revise and analyse your images.
Please note: While we do our best to adhere to the itinerary listed here, traveling requires flexibility, and changes to activities may occur. The program, therefore, can vary somewhat.
