Note from Instructor: “Workshops and photo tours are a fantastic way to develop your personal vision and refine your skills while having a great time in a wonderful location. I’m always available to offer advice and critique of images.”

I really enjoyed Brenda’s style of talking as we were on the bus. Very informative without being too formal. Lots of chances to learn as we took photos as well – in early morning or in evening. Got some great tips from Jed as I was photographing on various occasions. Very responsive to our questions with NO judgement about our skill levels. I have told many people that this was the best or one of the two best trips I have ever been on. The leaders great, group jelled fabulously and for me, traveling with all photographers was amazing.

All in all a wonderful trip – I Enjoyed my fellow travelers, friendly Cubans, and I don’t think I ever felt safer as I did in Cuba. I thought the mix of group photography and time to wnader around on our own was about right!!
