Seeing Cuba has been on my ‘Bucket List’ forever and this was a fabulous way to see it. You balanced out the group and individual gatherings so we could each have unique experiences. I can hardly wait to go back and see other areas of Cuba.”

Join Steve for a special Cuba photography workshop experience photographing the rural and colonial culture found on the southern coast of Cuba. He will take you on an excursion to photograph the French settler’s port of Cienfuegos and the colonial grandeur of Trinidad, and historic Santa Clara.

Founded in 1819 by the French, Cienfuegos is a calm and inviting port town known as La Perla del Sur (the Southern Pearl). The legendary Cuban musician Beny Moré is from Cienfuegos Province. We will spend an afternoon and night for a glimpse into life in a not-so-touristy town.

Trinidad is one of the finest colonial towns in the Americas with cobblestone streets, pastel-colored 18th and 19th-century houses, palaces, and plazas. Magically frozen in time the city has streets that are still populated by horse-drawn carts. Old folk still crouch by windows with elegant wrought-iron grilles, to peer out at passerby.

While Ché Guevara was not born in Santa Clara (he was from Argentina), the town has made itself famous as a center honoring his memory. We will visit the monumental Ché Memorial before returning to Havana.

Return to Cuba with Steve in 2021 for an unforgettable journey and continue your photographic explorations of this Caribbean treasure and its welcoming people.

The Heart of Cuba Photography Tour is open to amateur, advanced amateur and professional photographers who have traveled to Cuba with Steve, with another group, or on their own.
Participants should be technically self-sufficient, as this is not a program to learn how to use your gear or editing software. Participants should be in good health with good stamina and mobility, as days are spent exploring the streets—this means walking, sometimes for two to three hours at a time, occasionally up steep stairs, steep hills, and along uneven terrain.
Included:
• Accommodations in Cuba
• All breakfasts at the casa in Cuba
• Welcome and Farewell dinners
• Air-conditioned transport outside Havana
• Photographic instruction provided by Steve Anchell and Cuban photographers

Not Included:
• Airfare to Cuba is not included. Cuban health insurance is provided by the airlines as mandated by Cuban law.

This tour is in alliance with Cuba's premier photographic organization, Fototeca de Cuba. Our unique program allows U.S. participants to learn about Cuba's long and colorful history and have meaningful interactions with Cubans from all walks of life.

True to the requirements of a General License for Support for the Cuban People, The Heart of Cuba Photography Tour offers a full-time schedule of meaningful interactions with the Cuban people that promotes independent activity and records their amazing lives with our cameras.
Enrollment is limited to twelve participants. Participants make their own air travel arrangements to Havana and return to the U.S. Once the trip is confirmed, additional information and travel details will be provided.
