Cuba is bursting with culture, nature and ‘joie de vivre’.

Enjoy the vibrant culture of Cuba while improving your photographic skills during your photography workshop & masterclass. Photographing Cuba offers us the rare opportunity to capture its warm people alongside its natural beauty and breathtaking architecture. Relaxed Caribbean island culture mixed with the big city life of Havana, where American vintage cars from the 50s drive past you on Havana’s Malecon.

You’ll learn to capture some of it’s magic, the timeworn beautiful architecture, the colourful people, and the pulsating music, dance and art scene.

The Photography Workshops & Masterclass with Jörg Alexander combine on-site work with a very exciting visual tour. You learn through a mindful photographic approach to connect your photography and mind by expanding and deepening your vision.
In addition to a great experience and amazing locations, you will get a better understanding of what it takes to take a great photo.

Jörg Alexander teaches you his philosophy in photography – how to develop concepts, work in the street, make portraits, work with body and movement, photograph with natural and artificial light and bring images to life in post-production.

Compact, easy going

Down to earth and practically oriented.

You will learn that ingenious photos are less about technical know-how and more about using your most valuable instrument: Your eyes.

7 DAYS – PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP in HAVANA&TRINIDAD

In our workshop HAVANA & TRINIDAD we share our time between Havana, the pulsating capital of Cuba, and Trinidad, a distinctive colonial city on the south coast of the country. We will experience the rich and colourful culture and the true life in Cuba; we will meet the locals, visit the people in their homes, spend time with them and hear their stories. We do various tours, photo walks or vintage car tours or a tour to a tobacco company, or we visit a modern dance group in Havana. We will lead you to the most inspiring places in the best light of day. The workshop focuses entirely on photography and you will experience the real Cuba and visualise it with your photography. You can expect to have incredible opportunities for portrait, street and cultural photography.

7 Days – Photography Masterclass in HAVANA

In our Masterclass CUBA BODY & SOUL we will be inspired by Cuban dance. Sensuous Cuba is a nation of intense rhythms, colors, emotions, aromas, and flavors. We will do daily photo hikes and work with dancers, models and real people, focusing on the body, it’s expressions, its forms, lines and movements, surrounded by the rhythm of the culturally vivid Havana. The Masterclass level is more demanding, as it requires empathy and a sense of form and rhythm, as we leave the beaten pass moving in the field and developing our own visual stories. Joerg Alexander will teach you his mindful approach to photography, to deepen and expand your vision. You can expect to learn how to deal with light, how to compose compelling and complex images, how to interact with people and develop your own photographic vision. You will learn how to create concepts, work on the street, make portraits, work with bodies and movements, photograph with natural and artificial light and bring images to life in post-production.
