This is a Cuba Educational and Cultural Photo Tour, with a focus on using your camera gear to capture your cultural and educational experiences, with a particular emphasis on people, scenic and panoramic landscapes and environmental portrait photography. Several blocks of time in this ambitious yet exhilarating and well-managed itinerary are devoted to image capture of people, places and things and on-the-fly critiquing with your leader. Group members will engage with the Cuban people going about their daily lives and in specially-selected locations in and around Havana, Valle de Viñales, Playas del Este (beach), and Varadero (beach.)

The Cuba photo program is geared toward directly experiencing the people and activity, seeing history-making changes taking place, learning history, and enjoying the beauty all around you while pursuing your craft or hobby in photography.

The program is open to photographers of all levels. We are traveling only under US license Category 6B (see Travel Affidavit) for Cuba cultural-educational exchanges, NOT TOURISM that still is not permitted to date for US passport holders, or for any COMMERCIAL PURPOSES, such as commercial photography or journalism. No additional special events or excursions will be permitted outside of the program listed below and in any subsequent published itineraries. Contact your photography leaders regarding photography-related questions on program content.










Photo Tour Leader Yvonne J Butler is a seasoned travel pro and photographer who has led photo tours and workshops since 1999. Perhaps Yvonne is best known for developing and directing in 2001 the Shutterbug Magazine Digital Photography Workshop Series for four plus years and/or editing and co-writing The Advanced Digital Photographer’s Workbook (Focal Press, 2004) and co-writing RAW Workflow from Capture to Archives (Focal Press, 2006.) For the past five years, Yvonne and her company, YButler Group, LLC, have been developing and producing cultural/educational tours, with a heavy focus on Cuba photo tours. Yvonne is now well-versed and experienced in all things Cuba and, in addition to being tour leader, photo mentor and coach to tour participants, provides local history and color beyond what is provided by an English-speaking Cuba guide who accompanies photo tour groups for local guidance. She is passionate about and loves what she does!
