Choose Your Tour Wisely
When choosing your group tour, make sure that it’s tailored to your interests as a photographer. Look for tours that offer small groups and focus on photography-specific activities like visiting local galleries or attending workshops led by professional Cuban photographers. These types of tours will help you get the most out of your time in Cuba by allowing you to spend more time behind the lens.

It’s also important to pack light; choose items that are both functional and lightweight so that you can easily move around when photographing different locations or people.
Our guides and experts will be on hand to ensure you follow local etiquette and that you get hands on tips and advice on anything from angles, lighting to processing that winning image.

Take advantage of any opportunities during your tour to interact with locals and document their lives through photos. Ask questions about their experiences living in Cuba and share stories with them as you take pictures together. This will give you an even greater appreciation for the culture while also helping to capture meaningful photos of real people living in this country.
Apart from the people, Cuba also offers magical underwater photography opportunities as well as a stunning birdlife. We have a specialist in each field so you don’t have to compromise on the type of portfolio you wish to create.
