Cuba Photography Workshops

Cuba Writing Workshops

Southern France Photo Tours

Photography workshops and tours since 1979

Steve Anchell has led photography workshops in Cuba for more than fifteen years. He’s discovered those unusual destinations for that perfect photo experience. He understands the island and its people and how to navigate the laws and cultural expectations, with an onsite staff at the ready. In Steve's workshops you will have the opportunity to work with internationally exhibited Cuban photographers, to go where they go and see what they see. With the help of Steve and the Cuban photographers you will learn how to photograph the beauty of the island people as they, and you, experience this historic time of cultural change.

“I entered 3 prints from the last Cuban trip in a local regional all media juried show. Two got in!! Thanks for the training.” –Joseph Truitt, Salem, Ore.

Anyone can teach you photography; Steve will teach you how to be a photographer.
