The 2019 Supreme Cuba Cultural Photography Workshop
The 2019 Supreme Cuba Cultural
YES! WE ARE GOING BACK FOR MORE!
Sunday January 20th thru Monday January 28th, 2019
Go on the photographic adventure of a lifetime with an amazing guided photographic tour that only Positive Negatives can provide. This one-of-a-kind custom tailored photographic experience offers you the rare opportunity to explore this beautiful island country that few have been able to visit, all while learning how to create and capture the very best imagery possible. The local guides that will be accompanying us will absolutely steal your hearts.
You’ll witness and photograph firsthand the vast richness of culture, history, and architecture that Cuba has to offer. Our professional, personally guided photographic workshop isn’t for those that want a typical “touristy” picture-taking vacation. During this magnificent workshop you’ll take the roads less traveled, interact with locals, and see a side of Cuba that you never knew existed. Our goal is to make your experience feel like you’re living and breathing the magnificence of this land, right along side the locals.
To guarantee a deeper connection with the culture and people you’ll encounter during your adventure, the “Casa Particular” accommodations will provide you with a more intimate Person to Person experience. You’ll get your own private room, similar to a bed and breakfast, in the home of local host families that have an outstanding reputation and have provided this hospitality numerous times previously, and will give you a rare opportunity to interact and bond with a local family.

but is certainly not limited to:
