Travel photographer to lead a photogenic Cuba tour next spring

Posted: 02-Sep-15 11:21

Michele Burgess, an accomplished travel photographer will be leading a new tour of Cuba to be launched next spring and which promises lots of fantastic photo ops. Havana, Pinar del Rio, Trinidad and Cienfuegos are all included in the tour. In Havana highlights include a full city tour around the capital in a classic American car from the 50s, a visit to a vintage car garage and a stop at the municipality of Regla to dig deep into Afro-Cuban roots. The "Cuba Thru the Lens: People to People" tour will also take eager photographers through scenic rural landscapes along tobacco plantations, chaotic markets, historic architecture, colourful dance and musical shows as well as striking street art. So, more than plenty of opportunities to be clicking away - a kaleidoscopic panorama like Cuba's is truly every photographers' dream!

Travel photographer to lead a photogenic Cuba tour next spring

American travel photographer, Michele Burgess is organising (and will be leading) a new tour along some of the most scenic parts of Cuba, catering specifically to the interests of photography enthusiasts.

The “Cuba Thru the Lens: People to People tour” as featured on Burgess’ professional website, In Focus with Michele Burgess, will be re-launched in April next year after the one organised in 2015 proved so successful that it sold out before brochures could even be printed.

Taking place from 13th to 24th April, 2016 this 10-day tour will take in Cuba’s beautiful and highly photogenic cities of Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Pinar del Rio and the lush Viñales Valley, all from a photographer’s point of view.

There will be abundant photo opportunities at every step of the journey, from snapping quite a varied array of vintage cars (from Soviet to old American models), capturing dazzling and authentic street art to catching spontaneous "mis-en-place” on the streets, clicking away at dancers in full movement and flair or forever immortalising crumbling architecture.

The itinerary also includes a stop at various of Hemingway’s favourite haunts in Havana as well as at various local chaotic markets (like the food and vegetable “mercados agropecuarios”) to click away at the daily flurry and noisy flair of Cubans shopping for groceries.

Also included will be plenty of encounters with locals in their own neighbourhoods who will invite tour participants into their homes, private art galleries and studios. So, the one thing travellers and photography amateurs (or professionals) will get plenty with this colourful tour of Cuba of is photo ops galore!
