Editorial Cuba

Photo-Journalism In Cuba

Overview

An editorial and documentary photography holiday...

The focus of this tour will be on creating a photo-journalism project documenting everyday life in Cuba.

We will visit three towns, Havana, Santa Clara and Trinidad; each offering a distinctly different perspective on life in Cuba.

In Havana, we'll compare and contrast the dusty backstreets of the old town with modern architecture and regenerated areas, visit one of the most famous boxing gyms in the world and learn about the history and culture of the city.

Santa Clara is a town of learning and rebellion, home to the second largest university in Cuba and also the site of Che Guevara's most famous battle and mausoleum.

Our final stop is Trinidad, a UNESCO World Heritage site, barely changed by the passing of time.  Cobbled streets lead you out to rolling countryside and short drive will get us to the beach resort of Playa Ancon.

Throughout the trip you will receive expert advice and guidance on how to visualise, plan and shoot your own photo-project.

As we travel through different parts of Cuba you'll have the opportunity to meet and photograph people from all walks of life and tell their stories through your lens...

Overview

Cocktails and Cowboys​

Our signature two location Cuba trips takes us from Havana to Trinidad...

We start by exploring the capital city; from the dusty backstreets of Old Havana, to the famous Malecon sea wall and everything in between.  We'll visit some of the better known locations such as the Capitol building and the Museum of The Revolution as well as some less known parts, including the parks and gardens.

Next we head out of town to the UNESCO World Heritage town of Trinidad, where cowboys on horseback, cobbled streets and Caribbean sunsets await.

Here we'll take a horseback trip through the coffee and sugar plantations to a hidden waterfall and sample the incredible music and nightlife of the Casa de la Musica!

Throughout the trip we'll be delving into the arts, music and history of this incredible country, meeting some wonderful people, enjoying a few cocktails, some great nights out and, of course,  taking some fantastic photographs!
