Co-instruction with: Rick LePage 

Rarely have I had such a fantastic time scouting for a workshop as I did for this trip. Cuba is one of the more exciting, rich photographic locations I've been to in a long time. Wonderful people, great landscapes and cityscapes, gorgeous beaches, music and good food abound. We're going to have a ton of fun on this all inclusive workshop to explore Cuba and its culture. Our group will be traveling on pre-arranged 'help the Cuban people' visas and we will meet, photograph and interact with artists and local crafts people. We will stay in Old Havana and the spectacular farming valley of Vinales. I can't wait to get back and I hope you'll join me.

This all-inclusive workshop is special. Of course we will ride in vintage cars through Old Havana, and see how cigars are made, but we’ll also meet with Cuban artists — including a dinner with local photographers. We’ll stay in a gorgeous private residence in Old Havana, as well as a hotel with spectacular dawn and sunset views in the limestone-rich agricultural valley of Vinales. We’ll photograph salsa dancing and have a lesson ourselves. This trip is not just a photo workshop; it will also be a cultural exchange, and I think you’re going to be amazed at how special the experience is.
