Win! 10 Da y Ph oto Tour to cuba worth £4000
In association with Light & Land Photography Tours, we’re offering one lucky reader the chance to go on a 10-day photography tour of Cuba this November
We’ve teamed up with the UK’s leading photography tour company, Light & Land, to offer readers the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: a 10-day travel photography workshop that will take in the best that Cuba has to offer.
Few places in the world provide the photographer with more opportunities to capture vibrant and colourful images.
Your tour will be focused on the western end of the main island in the capital city of Havana and its surrounding provinces.
From the moment you arrive in Havana, it becomes apparent that this is a very special place. It’s a city of great contrasts: from beautifully restored to faded grandeur, every street offers something new to photograph.
While in the capital you will stay in the luxurious Hotel Parque Central, which is ideally located to allow you to venture far and wide across this captivating city, to photograph colonial squares, brightlypainted 1950s saloon cars, and the photogenic Habaneros.
After three nights in Havana you will travel to Cienfuegos, ‘The Pearl of the South’. Here, you will spend time exploring the town, with its fine examples of colonial architecture. The truly beautiful Teatro Tomas Terry is a gift for photographers, while the wonderful, palm-lined Malecon is a constant source of imagery for those prepared to watch and wait.
Your next destination will be the UNESCO World Heritage town of Trinidad. Minute in comparison with the capital, but oozing character, Trinidad boasts myriad photographic opportunities. Cobbled streets, gorgeous pastel colours, sumptuous colonial architecture and the occasional cigar-toting local make it seem as if you’re in the middle of a film set.
Finally, after the relative quiet of our more rural locations, you’ll head back to Havana, and the Hotel Parque Central, for your last two nights. Cuba is unique, a place not to be missed. The people, the music, the architecture and the overall atmosphere of excitement and enthusiasm for life are intoxicating.
This very special country is undergoing rapid change, which will make your photographs from this tour even more special – visual reminders of a country and culture that will never be the same again. The 10-day tour will include international flights, airport transfers, all accommodation and breakfasts, local transport in an air-conditioned coach, and expert tuition throughout the course.
The tour will be led by acclaimed pros Paul Sanders and Peter Hendrie, who will be on hand at all times to guide and assist you with your photography, no matter what your level of experience.
