Workshop Description

Join Camera West, along with Tom Brichta, travel photographer, and Christopher P. Baker, National Geographic’s expert on Cuba, as we travel to Cuba January 15th – 21st.

During our week’s adventure, we will discover the people and land of Cuba. Our person to person tour will take us to Havana, where we will interact with the people and their culture.

While in Havana we’ll visit the Nacional de Ballet, (Ballet School), see many of the Habana Vieja Plazas to meet the locals. We will see some of Cuba’s finest boxers training at Gimnasio Rafael Trejo, one of Cuba’s best boxing facilities. Take a ride in classic cars to dinner, and meet local photographers, and enjoy the sunset, along with the Malecon. We will stay in Casas Particulares, which are private homes.

From Havana, we’ll travel to Las Terrazas, and Vinales, Cuba’s Tobacco growing region. Here we will meet artists Henry Aloma and Lester Campa. We will also visit the Finca Pinar San Luis tobacco farm. We will also have time to photograph the landscape, and meet more people of the region, and also enjoy some of their local food. Again, we’ll stay in private local homes.

We hope you can join us on this small intimate adventure, we’ll only have ten participants. You’ll enjoy over thirty years of Christopher’s knowledge and stories of Cuba, along with photography tips from Tom.
