Photography Workshop in Cuba Is Legal
Focus Photo Tours offers the opportunity for US citizens to learn from an award winning photographer while experiencing Cuba in a personal and intimate manner
Fellsmere, FL (I-Newswire) October 3, 2013 - Focus Photo Tours is organizing an eight day photography workshop to take place in Cuba this coming May. Award winning photographer Jim LaSala will be instructing the participants in street photography and environmental portraiture. This tour is one of the few photography workshops in Cuba that are legal for US citizens and green card holders.
"We are so excited to get this opportunity to realize a bucket list item that neither of us thought could ever be realized.", says Mary, a workshop participant. Lynn Luzzi, founder of Focus Photo Tours says "Our clients have a range of photography skill levels. Their reasons for joining our trip next May are varied, some folks are focused on learning from a great artist like Jim LaSala, and others, like Mary are more excited about getting to photograph this once forbidden place before political sentiment closes the door again. But once thing is consistent, everybody is very excited about this trip."
For years, legal travel to Cuba has been almost impossible for the average American. That situation has changed. Today, there are a small number of tour operators who are licensed by the US Treasury Department to organize People-To-People travel to Cuba. Focus Photo Tours LLC, a Florida based photography workshop and tour organizer, has teamed with one of the best authorized Cuba travel operators to offer a unique and affordable learning opportunity.
"We titled this tour 'A Flavor of Cuba' because we're going to be getting fantastic opportunities to talk to and photograph some of the most iconic people and things in Cuba. We'll be going to the tobacco fields and talking with the farmers. We'll visit a boxing club in Havana, and the UNESCO heritage site of Trinidad with its beautifully preserved Colonial architecture, to name a few. I am very excited to have Jim as our instructor. His work is phenomenal, and this is an incredible opportunity to learn from a master. And if that is not enough, we're going to be dining at some of the best eateries that Cuba has to offer" says Luzzi. For participants with stamina, she also expects to be checking out the Havana jazz club scene in the evenings, as well as impromptu urban night shoots.

Participants should register before the end of November in order to reserve a seat, since the number of participants is limited to sixteen.
