Since the weekend, I am back in Cuba again, teaching another photo workshop here. I actually don’t known how many times I have taught the workshop, but it’s always such a joy to meet with new students and photographers. And not the least to be able to talk about and do what I burn for. Don’t we all burn for photography—at least most of you reading this blog?

So far, we have been photographing in Havana, but in a couple of days, we move on to the beautiful colonial city of Trinidad.

This post has actually been written before I left, since internet access is almost none existing in Cuba. I hope to be able to post more over the next week or two, but often I find it impossible. Particularly uploading any kind of photos is quite a trial to one’s patience. Thus, I cannot promise any photos or reports before I am back in Norway again, but I will do my best.

The pictures posted here are from the previous photo workshop I taught in Cuba. Like all Cuba workshops, I teach this together with my friend and colleague Sven Creutzmann.

    priceless shots, some quite hilarious! Rare to be somewhere people to not object to being photographed and do not see it as offending their ‘privacy’ ..ha, ha..what privacy?

  2. Looking forward to seeing your new photos on your return. I loved Trinidad – so colourful and the Cubans are such great people. I am green with envy….🤢

    Underbara bilder, min favorit blir den på fotograferna i bilen. Att få fota tillsammans med dig Otto står högt även på min önskelista.
    Må så gott!
