Message from John & Kenna

We’re excited to announce our journey to the people and culture of Cuba and we invite you to join us! For those of us here in the USA this has not been possible until 2011 when the laws were changed and now under special guidelines it’s 100% legal. We’ll be traveling under a license from the US government for “People to People Cultural Exchanges.” We've created a tailor made schedule where we'll meet and interact with individual Cubans and a variety of community groups. These encounters will undoubtedly make for special memories and intimate photographic moments. 

The best time is now

As the door to Cuba has now squeaked open just a little bit, it's the perfect time to see and experience its distinctive culture, history, music, dance, art, architecture and cuisine. It's possible that this opportunity won't last long if the people-to-people diplomacy licenses are repealed. But it's also possible that travel from the USA might become more open in the future. If so, the ability to experience Cuba's traditional culture and mystique may disappear at an accelerated rate. 

This trip is open to all, no matter where you hail from and no matter what your interest in photography is. We will be focusing on meeting people and experiencing the culture, good times and learning experiences are sure to be had by all.

Co-tour leaders

John and Kenna have followed different paths exploring the world with their cameras and have now joined forces for this one-of-a-kind trip. With a checklist of over 60 countries visited and 50 years of combined photography experience, seasoned and savvy travelers John & Kenna are your perfect co-leaders for this Cuban adventure.
