Travel Like a Journalist, Live Like a Native, Shoot Like a Professional

Camera Odysseys has put a trip together that will start you on the east coast of Cuba, in Santiago. We will sip the great Santiago Rum with the masters, walk the streets of the 500-year-old town and visit the sugar cane. We will get a taste of Cuban art through our local Cuban artist. The trip will then move to the west going into Viñuales and the famous Tobacco of Cuba. The fields will be in full harvest, the farmers will teach us the rolling of the cigar. If we haven't turn you into a native by this time, we will head to the capital of Cuba, Havana. Get ready for the Cars, the Music, the Dance, the Art, the Boxers and the beautiful people.

Bruce Byers, Professional Photographer

Will be with us on the streets, photographing people and the architecture of Cuba. This will be my 20th trip. I designs the trips to make sure you’ll never see, or photograph, the world quite the same way again. I am very excited about our upcoming trips, and thinks you will be as well.

There are many ways to travel to Cuba. We love to travel off the beaten path. When Camera Odysseys travels, we take the personal path. The farmers are our friends and we become part of the family. Why go to the cigar factory when you can see a cigar rolled in a private tobacco barn filled with drying tobacco.

 Portrait workshops with strobe and natural light will help you create.

Glenn Batkin, Creative Director

Creative Director that will provide expert groundwork for more impactful images.

An award winning creative director in advertising, Glenn believes humans are wired for stories. Creative storytelling can evoke emotions and generate strong personal connections to a brand, its objective, and its products. He has created advertising for such brands as IBM, Gatorade, Unicef, The US Armed Forces and Verizon. Glenn has worked with some of the world’s top commercial photographers to capture striking images for his clients.

Over the course of the trip you will learn:

  • The difference between photography and storytelling.

  • Anyone can take a photograph but not all photographs tell visually rich stories.

  • The use of design in photography through color, texture, light, perspective and detail.

  • To craft your own unique visual voice.

 We will create images with a great group of Flamenco dancers. They have be come our friends and make each photograph great. The 15th century backgrounds make a once in a life time photograph.
