About this activity
Cuba is a country of contrasts, colors, and culture.
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.
The photo tour focuses on different architectural styles competing for attention, you will visit beautiful restored palaces and we will see places still in ruins, trapped in lost time. You can also experience the real Cuba and document it with your photography. We will take you to the most inspiring places. You can expect to have some incredible architectural, street and car photography opportunities.
Throughout the tour, Joerg Alexander will be there to offer guidance and advice. You can expect to learn how to manage light, how to compose compelling and complex pictures, how to interact with people if you’re keen on taking their portrait. Joerg Alexander will explain his photographic vision and help you find your own.
Experience and photograph the real Cuba in an exiting photo adventure. Enjoy Cuba’s vibrant culture and improve your photography skills at the same time during this photo tour in Havana.
