SAMPLE Tour: Cuba through the lens
Cuba is a paradise for photography: The crumbling majesty of spanish-colonial palacios, vintage cars out of the 50’s gliding down beachside roads, heaps of tropical produce grown in vibrant organic gardens, studios of local artists capturing the textures and rhythms of Cuban life, and cities pulsing from morning to night with music and dance.
Join EEAbroad and experience Cuba through the camera lens! We’ve partnered with one of Cuba’s premier schools of photography to offer this once-in-a-lifetime immersion experience. Through personal tutorials with expert photographers, you’ll develop the skills you need to capture Cuba’s architecture, landscapes, people, food, and city life in stunning detail. After every training session, you’ll get out into the cities and streets for a guided photo shoot-- allowing you to apply your skills in the real world, and experience the island close-up.
Whether you’re an experienced photographer or someone just getting behind the lens, this program will take your skills to the next level. Along the way, you’ll learn about Cuba’s rich history, taste its signature dishes, see the island’s first darkroom, explore its pristine mountains and beaches, and meet local artists, musicians, dancers, and activists who call the island home.
That said, here’s the most important part: Every element of this itinerary is entirely customizable. (Really, we mean it.) We offer the itinerary below to inspire you and give you just a taste of the kinds of experiences we offer. In designing your unique Cuba experience, we’ll work with you to tailor the details of your trip exactly to your interests and desires.
