There are many ways to get to know Cuba, but for photography buffs the best without doubt is to perform a Photography Tour to Cuba, several days to enjoy photography and at the same time discover Cuba so deeply, separating from the usual tourist circuit.
My name is Louis Alarcon, I have been living and working intermittently in Cuba since 1998 and I’m one of the leading specialists in Photo Tours and Workshops to Cuba.
I am a teacher and have specialized in telling stories through documentary and artistic photography, I manage the international account of Cuba in Instagram and I created the largest video channel on youtube about traveling to Cuba with millions of visits and an exclusive channel on Photo Tours in Cuba.
My web is specialized to 100% in Cuban photography in it you can find dozens of photographic series that will help you understand the island and get to know some historical moments that are being currently experienced.

Workshops and Photo Tours in Cuba 2018 , 2019 and 2020.
In my trips we will stay in official rental houses, with complete independence and comfort, so we will have a more direct contact with the Cuban people.
Cuba has many advantages over other countries, not only by its light, but by the charming character of its people and by the ease with which you can make portraits and street photo, a discipline that is almost impossible to practice in other countries such as Morocco.
Our camera will be like a key that will allow us to enter many places and situations that go unnoticed for the tourist, also because I only work with small groups, we can be more flexible in my trips. My groups are not superior to 7 travelers.
