Havana Street Photography Workshop

Havana Street Photography Workshop

Havana & Matanzas

April 6 to 14
December 7 to 15

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. Lead by award winning photographer and published Cuba expert, Steve Anchell.

The workshop is structured around people photography and architecture, emphasizing the use of wide angle lenses to get close into your subject. Dancers, craftsmen, Art Deco and Colonial style architecture, visits to Cuban homes, and working side-by-side with Cuban photographers.

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

On this 7-day workshop Steve, along with internationally known Cuban photographers, will work with you on your street photography skills and discuss what it means to be a documentary photographer. 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 evening at 5pm.

Mid-week we will travel to the city of Matanzas where we will practice our skills recording small towns and seeing how "the other half lives."

To participate you don’t need to be an expert photographer, only interested in watching, listening, learning, and having a great time.

While street photography usually requires lots of walking, we have successfully accommodated photographers with walking impediments, including walkers, canes, and even wheelchairs. If you have a mobility problem please contact us at 503.884.3882 or info@anchellworkshops.com.

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.

Single Room:  $180
Limited to: 12 participants
