In our Cuba summer photography program, the students will explore the colorful and vibrant culture of Cuba while taking their photography to the next level!
The Image Flow is partnering with ARCC Programs, a leader in service and adventure programs for teenagers, to offer this photography workshop in Cuba. ARCC has been leading teen programs in Cuba for the past 4 years. We have worked hand-in-hand with ARCC to customize this photography program and are proud to be offering such an exceptional trip combining photography, community service and travel.
The students will have unique access into modern Cuba, giving back to communities in need, learning photography techniques from professional photographers, and experiencing this wonderful island nation framed by the backdrop of the beautiful Caribbean. Cuba will provide a multitude of photogenic subjects for the group: brilliant and fading architecture, open and lively people, Caribbean light and vibrant colors.
For the entire program Curtis Myers, The Image Flow instructor, will be with the students and photography instruction will be incorporated into the daily itinerary. Curtis will cover composition, light, color, visual storytelling, photographing strangers, and basic Lightroom. Daily group critique sessions and one-on-one time with Curtis will be powerful tools for learning from the day’s images. By the end of the trip, the participants will have a beautiful collection of photographs!
An ARCC guide, with experience leading international teen programs, will also travel with the students. He will work closely with Curtis providing guidance, local insights and information, and conversations about leadership and successful group experiences. An ARCC partner in Cuba will take care of all the details before and during the trip.
We will be having an informational evening for parents and students at The Image Flow in early February. ARCC custom program director Bryan Salyer, President Scott von Eschen and Curtis will be on hand to discuss the trip and answer your questions. If you would like more information about this meeting, please contact us at 415-388-3569. We will be confirming the date as soon as possible.
