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 once-in-a-lifetime 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.

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.

Travel to Cuba for tourist activities remains prohibited by statute. However, the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has issued general licenses for 12 categories of travel. Positive Negatives, in conjunction with one of the most experienced tour operators of Cuban photographic tours for over 15 years, are on top of what’s possible and what is not. We guarantee that our tour will absolutely be in compliance with all regulations.

 

Just some of the highlights of this exciting photographic and cultural adventure include, but is certainly not limited to:

*Photography in Havana, Cuba’s capitol city, and historic Old Havana, with a walking tour of Havana’s four historic plaza’s
