Joerg Alexander Reichardt
Teaches Photography
Joerg takes you onto ‘his’ Havana to teach you everything he knows about photography and telling stories through images.
Five-days Photography Masterclass
Havana, Cuba
Masterclass dates:

October 30. – November 03.

City of light.
Straddling between socialism and capitalism, decay and glamour, riotous colours and melancholy interiors, the city races in many opposite directions due to its arrested development toward an uncertain future.

Showing the world through your eyes.

That’s what it’s all about.

The masterclass combines a very exciting five-day visual tour and program in Havana with working in the field and lectures on a mindful photographic approach to connect photography and mind, expanding and deepening your vision. Joerg Reichardt teaches you his philosophy on photography— how to develop concepts, work on the street, take portraits, work with body and movement, creating a look in fashion, shoot with natural and artificial light, and bring images to life in post-production.

Get inspired,


and learn.

  • Compact and easy going
    Down 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 Size
    The masterclass is limited to 5 - 7 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.
  • Experience
    The 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.

I like walking in the street
I like to walk with my camera, it is a form of meditation. The goal is to get in the flow with the things that surround you.
It is not merely a record of an event, place or issue.
You look into an illuminated rectangle, in which the figures move between on and off, who surrender and cover, who give you a riddle and thus a desire for dissolution and revelation.
It feels more like first row in the world theatre.
Creating ambiguity with a blend of natural and artificial light
The gentle twilight carries a secret in itself. Light is not tangible and yet it has a body, a sound. Yes, it has to be measured – that’s easy – but exposure values ​​do not tell you anything about the „psychology of light“.

Teaches Photography

In the last 10 years Joerg shared it’s time between Berlin and Havana, and over the time Havana has become it’s second home. Join the next Masterclass in October in Havana, where he is passing on his knowledge and rich experience in photography.

The formal characteristics of the picture are the key to the visual experience
My pictures are no paintings, but they should satisfy the people who see them, like a painting does.
The camera is seen as an instrument to show things, but it covers as much.
In the fragment, in the simplification, in the silhouette, there is a multitude of open emotions and questions.
The human form counts among the most changeable terrains of photography.
The plasticity of the body – its posture, its position, its behaviour – offers many visual possibilities. It adapts to the place, and sometimes it emphasizes the awkwardness of the human form, sometimes its beauty and elegance.

The photographic frame is a charged space that creates its own context.

My primary concern is to open your eyes to the diversity of photographic vision.

Make your own book

Make an exclusive book of your Havana experience.

To see your photos in the context of a layout, is changing the way how you perceive them.

Joerg is setting up a book layout with Lightroom for you and discusses possible content and styles of the photography. Defining the formats and number of pictures in a variety of layouts for an individual book project. After the day Joerg will make a preselection with you and go through your material with a first image editing in Lightroom and Photoshop.

On our first day, Joerg describes the masterclass concept and discusses it with you, explaining possible content and styles of the photography.

After each day Joerg makes a first preselection with you and on our last day, we go through your material again and do a final selection with the appropriate image editing in Lightroom and Photoshop.

A finalised book can then be ordered e.g. via Lightroom at BLURB in the desired edition format and numbers.
