“I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to experience Cuba with. It’s made the difference in making it better than imaginable. “There was such a nice flow to each day’s adventure with your “itinerary” that gave us flexibility to take advantage of the local happenings.
“And could I just tell you what a great teacher you are of photography? When you sat with us going over the technical side of our cameras (histograms, camera settings, etc).
“I learned so much and exactly what I needed to know after a few days of street photography.”
‒Julie Lee, Fairfax, Virginia
“The Photography Workshop in Cuba directed, organized, and led by you was the greatest. Certainly, the workshop was the highlight of 2003 for me. There are so many reasons I enjoyed the Workshop I can only list a few.
“First, all the arrangements worked, visa, airline tickets, hotel were well planned. I joined at the last minute and really was a little anxious. You took care of everything. Of course, meeting the Cuban photographers at Fototeca was wonderful. What a wonderful opportunity for me to see these photographers and to buy a few of their images. I cannot wait to return."
‒Gerald Lepp, Brooklyn, New York
“Thanx for everything…Cuba was fantastico! I now know I can look ‘em in the eye when I take a photo…”
‒Don Dunn, New York City, New York
“I must say that it was a great, great trip, and I am still glowing in the memory of it as I go through my images. I have printed out about 20 images so far and shown them at Thanksgiving for dessert and everyone was amazed. They caused great conversation. Thanks again for a wonderful time.”
‒Herb Bardavid, Great Neck, New York
“It was a GREAT TRIP!!!!!”

‒Carisa Mahnken, Mountain Lakes, New Jersey
“Thank you for guiding us and letting us explore and take advantage of what I may describe as a most creative road all through Habana Vieja with spontaneous detours. This was not just another “out of the box trip” but a thoroughly creative and unique adventure.
