Calendar And Fees



Hurry and get to Cuba before McDonald’s! It’s still Cuba, just don’t wait.

Join in on the most exceptional learning experience to Cuba with the real deal… the most experienced travel photographer who’s been going for the last 18 years and familiar with the absolute best locations. You won’t find a better host to take you to this vibrant country. Open to all skill levels. Havana is 8 days, Havana and Trinidad are 12 days (they always sell out!).

Schedule: 2016
Havana –  April 28-May 5, 2016
Havana –  May 6-13, 2016  
Havana & Santiago de Cuba (Carnival) –  July 20-August 1, 2016

This is a legal licensed trip open to all photo skill levels.  Whether it’s the antique American cars, the gorgeous old faded buildings, the kids diving off the Malecón wall into the crystal blue ocean or the colorful friendly warm people, you’ll want to go before the full embargo lifts and becomes flooded with US tourists. The trick is not what to take photos of, but how to sort through the endless photographic possibilities. Email Judith if you are interested.

Photo Critiques, Private CompositionCRITIQUE At The Met (NEW!)

WE WILL BEGIN A CLASS CALLED  CRITIQUE AT THE MET, DELVING DEEPER INTO PHOTOGRAPHS AT THE MUSEUM, UNDERSTANDING HOW PHOTOGRAPHER’S SEE AND THINK, WHILE WE CREATE IMAGES AS WELL (all levels welcome). Composition 1 is held at Grand Central (Winter) or Bethesda Fountain in Central Park (Spring/Summer/Fall) all perfect locations to learn with basic, simple exercises geared to anyone wanting to improve their eye with a good foundation in understanding composition and framing. In this class you learn to train your eye in “how to see.”

Composition 2 (prerequisite: good understanding of your camera’s basic functions). Take the next step with your framing in capturing moments. The street composition sessions are held in various neighborhoods: Chinatown, Spanish Harlem, Red Hook, Brooklyn Bridge, The Met, The NY Public Library. Private Critique is where you get your photos reviewed. We find a common theme where your style is uncovered. This is where you also learn self-editing, what your eye is drawn to, find your style and then enhance your photos with simple technical tools. The private Critique Sessions are held online in real time. If you are feeling stuck taking the same photos with no improvement, you will want to experience the Private Critique.
