April 30 to May 7, 2025

Listening to, observing, and following Steve Anchell in the city streets of Cuba is an experience not to be missed and long valued.” ~Nick Mobile, Malvern, Penn.

The Havana Street Photography Workshop is a real-life experience led by award-winning photographer and published Cuba expert, Steve Anchell.

This is an authentic opportunity to connect with the people of Cuba, and witness, first-hand, the shifting cultural landscape in which they live.

The workshop is structured around people photography and architecture, emphasizing the methods Steve taught at the International Center of Photography in NYC and Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. Dancers, craftsmen, Art Deco and Colonial style architecture, visits to Cuban homes, and working side-by-side with Cuban photographers are all part of this unique workshop experience.

In this 8-day workshop Steve, along with internationally known Cuban photographers, will work with you on your street photography skills. Steve will also be available to work with you individually on technical issues you may be experiencing.

The Havana Street Photography Workshops is focused on people photography, portraits, and street photography. The main goal is to connect with the Cuban people and discover an exciting and mysterious culture. This is a unique opportunity for photographers to visit Havana and engage with the Cuban people. This will be an opportunity to make a portfolio of photographs of these amazingly human, vibrant, and passionate people and culture. This educational exchange offers participants the chance to be a part of the amazing spirit and passion for living the Cuban people have to offer.

We will have flexibility in our itineraries and have planned these trips to utilize the emerging private sector in Cuba. Most days will include a 3-hour group photo session, though participation is optional. There will be free time for editing your work for a presentation and critique on select evenings.

This is a workshop for all levels. To participate, you don’t need to be an expert photographer; film, digital, 4x5, or cellphone, are all welcome.

Thank you for all I learned during the workshop. It was amazing experience and very helpful!! Now I know how to throw away all my hesitations in taking pictures in the streets.” ~Popi Tsoukatou, Athens, Greece
