There are several agencies that offer photography trips to Cuba, mainly to Havana and Vinales; we want to recommend you a project involving photography trips to Cuba led by a Spanish bilingual photographer who is fully specialized in trips, photography and the Cuban culture.

Travelers from all nationalities

Cuba is still a forbidden island, especially since the new regulations set forth by Donald Trump on June 16th, 2017, but the photo trips led by Louis have all necessary permits to carry out group, people-to-people trips with United States citizens.

Travelers from any other country can take part in these cuban photography trips without the need for any special permit.

These cuban photo trips are managed and sold by the Locally Sourced Cuba agency, which in partnership with its American counterpart, The Educational Adventures Company, handle all the logistics of these trips, and as you can see they specialize exclusively in Cuba, just like Louis.

Photography trips to Cuba

Louis’ knowledge of Cuba is vast; this has helped him design a photography trip that departs from the usual touristic areas which are crowded by tourists.

In Louis’ words, “…it is curious how many photography and travel enthusiasts write to me asking if you can still see the more authentic Cuba. My reply is always the same – the real Cuba is 50 meters away from the tourist-crowded streets. One street down you will find a place that is devoid of tourists, filled with the Cuban everyday, ordinary life.”

Cuba, the paradise of human photography

Cuba is a country of human contact, which is why lodging during these photo trips takes place at a large official private home with a great terrace, with all the comforts and privacy for travelers. There, Louis organizes activities such as photograph reviews, discussions and the chance to listen to live music.

A different photo trip : If you are a traveler who has taken various photo trips around the world, you may always have sought the iconic photograph, the nice or spectacular photograph; the sunsets, the landscapes, etc.; but Cuba is the country of human contact, and in addition to guiding you to the best locations and help you relate with Cubans, Louis will also guide you in the process of documentary photography; you will mostly learn how to tell human stories through your photographs.
