Workshop: Analog Film Workshop in Cuba with Ryan Muirhead


In 2019, Creative Adventure Photography, wanted to do something excitingly new, something close to their heart, so they decided to launch Analog/Digital Adventure Workshops! They are hitting the ground running to, because their next workshop begin March 9th!

This workshop will take a small group of 10 photographers to Cuba for an 8 day adventure with Harald Claessen as their host and dedicated film photographer Ryan Muirhead, who will also be serving as their guest lecturer.

This workshop is great opportunity for the DLSR shooter to have an introduction to film in a new environment, as well as for the experienced film shooter who wants more out of their current technique. Through the workshop your hosts and instructors will guide you through becoming more comfortable photographing strangers in an unfamiliar environment while teaching you how to apply the zone system for better B&W film results. You will also learn to master and apply spot and incident metering in various lighting conditions and discuss it’s effect with various film stocks for better negatives post adventure!

The Adventure:

This 8 day photo adventure workshop will start in Havana with an in-depth exploration of the backstreets and of its exotic neighborhoods including Havana Centro, Old Havana and Vedado.

You will visit a famous boxing gym, the oceanside promenade Malecón, and the Prado. During day trips you will visit the communities of Regla and the fishing village Cojimar, where Ernest Hemingway found the inspiration to write "The Old Man and the Sea". We will also visit a beach close to Havana where people from town go to relax, Playa del Este.

You will then stay in Valle of Viñales, a picturesque tobacco growing region where we visit welcoming farmer families before returning to Havana.

You will stay in Beautiful Casa Particulars and we have designed our itinerary such that you will have access to the vibrant and authentic daily life of the Cuban people.

This journey is not only about the destinations, it’s about the people we meet, and the portraits we make.
