Havana Photography Workshop
Havana & Vinales
December 13 to 21, 2019
“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, Pa.
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.
On 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.
Each day will begin with a 3- to 4-hour photo session led either by Steve or a Cuban photographer. The afternoon will be spent for practicing and exploring on your own, and editing your work for a presentation and critique most evenings at 5pm. Mid-week we will travel to the city of Vinales in the tobacco growing region west of Havana, where we will practice our skills recording small towns and seeing how "the other half lives." We will stay the night in Vinales to explore even more.
To participate you don’t need to be an expert photographer; film, digital, 4x5 or cell phone, all are welcome.
To fully experience Cuba, the people, and their culture, we will be staying in private homes (casa particulars). Each room will have it's own private bath.
