What you'll do

This is a special invitation to those who really like to get to know the city they visit, its people, and the customs and traditions that make up their cultural identity. We will walk through the main districts of Havana, where you will discover its people and see how Cubans live, away from tourist areas, where you can take spectacular photos.
It will also be a day of learning some camera skills (or how to get the best of your cell phone camera), how artistic photography works, how to improve your images, and how to enjoy the whole process. This is a unique opportunity to breathe the Cuban way of life and translate it into your photographs.
If the portrait is your favorite genre we can help you interact with people and get a good picture.
If you like the experience and want to be a little longer with us you can request it paying 15 CUC per extra hour.
Other things to note
You must bring a camera or cell phone. If you have not contacted us and we will provide you one

Where you'll be

We will begin at Escuela de Fotografía Creativa de La Habana—Havana's Creative Photography School. From there, we will walk along 23rd Street and enter the barrio of Cayo Hueso—the Key West neighborhood. We will meet typical characters in each neighborhood we visit. You will see how Cubans live and think today. We will take wonderful photos and experience the many details of the daily lives of Cubans.

This was a fun experience around Havana. We were taken to some awesome places to capture some images and even stopped by an incredible bakery. I highly recommend this tour.

Osmany was awesome!! He asked us what we wanted to see and made sure to give us a unique experience. He also guided me through the entire way on how to take better photos on my iphone!! I was in love with so many of the photos I took myself!! I usually hate taking photos but felt I got the hang of it. He also walked us through the history of all the places he took us to. I was so impressed!! Thanks Osmany!! We appreciate it!!

Great time taking photos on the street. I wouldn't have been able to take these pics on my own. Osmany started off at my level of photographic knowledge and worked up towards the level that would help me take the best photos. Then we hit the streets and engaged all sorts of people. What a great time! I have pictures that I'll look at for the rest of my life.

I took another tour with this group first. And Osmany was the photographer in that tour. He did an awesome job. Later i happened to meet one of his students during my stay in Havana. I liked his student’s work very much. So i booked this photography tour. Osmany has many knowledge on photography and loves to share. I learned many tips from him that i could applies in my future work. Thank you, Osmany!

Taking the tour with Osvaldo was good. He built us the courage to take street photos. If the tour could be in old Habana, that would be extraordinary!
