Havana; – straddling between socialism and capitalism, decay and glamour, seditious colours and melancholic interiors, racing in many opposite directions due to its slower development into an uncertain future. Relaxed Caribbean island culture mixed with the big city life of Havana, where American vintage cars from the 50s drive past you on Havana’s Malecon. You’ll learn to capture some of it’s magic, the timeworn beautiful architecture, the colourful people, and the pulsating music, dance and art scene. Photographing Cuba offers us the rare opportunity to capture its warm people alongside its natural beauty and breathtaking architecture.
Our Tours are both sightseeing and photography, some are a more intensive learning experience and others are more relaxed. One thing remains constant… we are always on vacation…. photographing, learning and getting away inspired. Our mindful photographic approach connects your photography and your mind by broadening and deepening your vision. You will learn that ingenious photos are less about technical know-how and more about using your most valuable instrument: Your eyes
Havana Buena Vista
With its nostalgic architecture, vibrant culture, and colourful people, Havana has an undeniable allure, and provides a dream setting for photography. We visit all the main sites and the most photogenic and inspiring places in the morning light of the day. On our Photo Walk in Havana Vieja we visit the four main squares of La Habana Vieja; Plaza Vieja, Plaza de San Francisco de Asis, Plaza de Armas and Plaza de La Catedral.
Palaces & Ruines
Havana’ s magnificent and decay
The photo adventure focuses on different architectural styles competing for attention. You will see beautiful restored palaces and once wondeerful places in ruins, trapped in lost time. There is no city in the world so rich in hidden beauty. Every quarter seems to be marked by historical landmarks. Havana is an easily navigable city, bordered by the sea and separated from its suburbs by a river. All you have to do is look up. “Havana is a library of architecture. Every style is well represented there, and the reason for its magic is the triangular culture – African, American, European”. But today, as Havana opens up to the world, it is also on the verge of collapse.
Classic Vintage Convertible & Personal Photo Shoot
In the center of the photo adventure is a wonderfully restored vintage convertible. A Chevrolet from 1959, with a name derived from the African antelope, an IMPALA 59. The significantly flat body with its characteristic rear fins in the form of wings, the red interieur and the elegant black paint makes him a real beauty. You will not only visit the many wonderful sights and most interesting places in Havana, you will be set in scene, with this beautiful vintage car, by your photographer and tutor, on this special Photo Adventure.
