CUBA PROGRAM

SFPW_New-Cuba-Gif_add-countryside_1.gif

90 miles and 50 years. That’s what has divided the United States and the island of Cuba—until now. True to our values as an inspirational resource for photographers, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops is building bridges between these two nations and their people via our cultural exchange programs.

The Workshops has developed our unique programs to foster dialogue, interaction, and understanding between the U.S. and Cuba. Our focus is on exploring and celebrating similarities, as well as what our societies can learn from one another. We can do all this thanks to an authorization by the U.S. Treasury Department to operate people-to-people educational exchanges in Cuba. For you, Cuba represents not just another travel opportunity, but the chance to become richer in thought, spirit, and vision, both as a person and as an artist.

Travel to Cuba can be complex, and our years of experience navigating travel, logistics, and language offer you the security of exploring the visual and cultural landscape of the island with a meticulously planned journey. Our operations team of seasoned Cuba travelers—Kip Brundage, Dustin Sammann, and Jennifer Spelman—and local, English-speaking Cuban photographers provide their knowledge of the country and guide you behind the tourist veil. Small group sizes of 12 to 15 travelers encourage authentic and compelling educational visits to dance and artist's studios, local produce markets, boxing arenas, agricultural and livestock farms, and music venues, to name a few of our well-planned locations. Each program is led by a world-renowned photographer who provides insight, inspiration and encouragement.

With our program, your camera is your passport. Discover Cuba and engage with its warm, welcoming people on our licensed educational exchanges.

True to the requirements of a people-to-people license with U.S. Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control, our programs in Cuba focus on educational exchanges that provide meaningful interactions between our travelers and individuals in Cuba while recording their amazing lives with our cameras. There will not be structured photo instruction or group critiques.

We are currently accepting applications and deposits for the following Cuba programs. To reserve your space, fill out the online registration form and your $1000 deposit will be processed. All travelers will need to complete additional paperwork, and provide a copy of his/her valid passport 60 days prior to the departure date. Travelers are also required to purchase travel insurance for these trips.
