This workshop was my first trip with Colby and my first time to Cuba. I didn’t know what to expect but I all I had hoped for was a great trip and I was BLOWN AWAY at every turn! Colby is not only an amazing photographer but a fabulous teacher, trip planner, humanitarian, comedian, etc… I could go on and on. Not only was everything planned to a T and taken care of for us but he always works with a local guide to plan the best trip possible. If you want to be with all the tourists and see only the touristy sights, these workshops are not for you… if you want to see a side of Cuba that BARELY even the locals get to see, you must do this workshop! We spent a day hanging in the mountains with cowboys, went to a cigar factory and took portraits in the most amazing light, walked the streets to chat with and photograph locals. It was a truly incredible experience and I learned more than I ever thought I would. If you want to capture amazing portrait photographs in a truly unique country, while learning from a master, no matter what your level of comfort with photography is, this trip is definitely worth doing!
