Cuba Photo Tours & Workshops

Cuba Writing Workshops

Southern France Photo Tours

Steve Anchell has led photography workshops in Cuba for more than fifteen years. He understands the island and its people. He’s discovered those unusual destinations for that perfect photo experience. He also knows 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 a historic 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.

Cuba Photography Workshops
since 2001

With the re-opening of the U.S. embassy, almost anyone can find a way to legally travel to Cuba. So why travel with a group? Quite simply, you travel with Steve Anchell for his experience and knowledge of the island and the people, and to learn how to photograph the changing culture.

Steve knows the island, the people, and the culture, better than anyone. And he can teach you to be a photographer of people, culture, and change.
