The Natural Wonders of Cuba

We are very excited to announce our first photography workshop tour of the natural wonders of Cuba. After a short stay in Havana upon arrival, we will leave the city behind to explore Cuba’s black sand beaches, pristine waterfalls, caverns, rivers, flora and fauna. We will guide the vintage vehicles into the countryside to examine the beauty among the complexities.

Ahhh, THE DANCE OF PHOTOGRAPHY is my favorite workshop to teach. Come to the 350-acre campus of John C. Campbell Folk School in the heart of Appalachia for a five day photography intensive that is guaranteed to rest your soul and take your photography skills to the next level.
We will have plenty of time to study and practice landscapes, waterfalls, portraiture and macro photography. Students will be challenged to produce images that are technically correct and beautifully composed by using advanced features on the camera and training the eye for artistic interpretation.
No "dance" experience needed...just the desire to stay focused.
