Maximum of 8 people
Travel with Ron Levine as your guide to Havana, Cuba for a week of photography and culture in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The past and the future stand side by side in this visually astonishing city.
Among the exclusive activities unavailable to casual Havana visitors, Ron and his Cuban photographer counterparts will take you on a tour of the renowned Cuban Ballet School, where students ages 8 to 18 rehearse and perform 7 days a week. As well, we will visit two Cuban boxing schools where youngsters as well as old pros ply their trade. We will walk the celebrated Maleçon along the shore where locals and tourists play. And visit a tobacco plantation an hour out of Havana, where the famed Cohiba and Monte Cristo cigars are produced. Plus much, much more.
Whether your love of photography includes portraits, street scenes, landscapes, architectural treasures or even old cars, you will be entranced with Havana’s vibrancy and visual opportunities. Life is on the streets and Ron will help you to capture it with precision and imagination. An accomplished Cuban street photographer will guide us through the fascinating backstreets of Old Havana as we walk through the City and take in its remarkable history.
We will eat at some of the best restaurants Havana has to offer… as well as authentic family-owned dining rooms undiscovered by the average tourists. We stay at a four-star Colonial hotel in Old Havana, which includes breakfast and a private bathroom. Singles or shared accommodations are available.
Daily discussions of participants’ photography will be held after breakfast. And Ron will be there on site to help you advance your proficiency, so that you return to Montreal with enhanced insight into your work and an improved skill-set to bring your portfolio to the next level.
