À propos de cette activité

Cuba is a country of contrasts, colors, and culture.

Experience and photograph the real Cuba in an exiting photography masterclass. Enjoy Cuba’s vibrant culture and improve your photography skills at the same time during this 7-day photography masterclass and photo tour in Havana and Trinidad.

The masterclass is fully focused around photography. We’ll be taking you to the most inspiring places, making use of the best light of the day. You can expect to have some incredible portrait, street, and cultural photographic opportunities.

Throughout the trip, Joerg will be there to offer guidance and advice. Since we’ll be traveling in a small group, you’ll receive personal tutoring, which ensures that it’s suitable for your level. 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 will explain his photographic vision and help you find their own. We’ll be out shooting every day, and during the evenings there are opportunities to revise and analyze your images.

Joerg has been traveling to Cuba for many years, and thanks to his personal connections. During the trip we will tour with wonderful American Classic Vintage Cars. You can expect to meet Cuban photographers, visit people in their homes, get a tour of a tobacco company or a dance company, or view a live art performance. You’ll get a chance to experience the real Cuba, and to document it through photography.

À propos de votre Mentor
In my 35-year career I have developed from fashion photography to scenic advertising photography to portrait and documentary photography. For years I specialized in studio photography and working with artificial lights, until 10 years ago I began to travel to Cuba and got involved in street photography and urban landscapes. From the poses of the model in fashion to large staged group scenes, I have now come to a strong portrait photography full of character and intimate closeness. After 10 years visiting and living in Havana, I became in an intimate expert on Cuba and Havana. In my photography masterclass I like to pass on the rich photographic repertoire, I have accumulated over my career, with working in the field and lectures on a mindful photographic approach to connect photography and mind, expanding and deepening your vision. Come and get inspired. Show the world through your eyes. That's what is all about.
