Cuba Workshop

London Gatwick Airport

“THE CLOCKS HAVE BEEN STOPPED FOR DECADES BUT IT‘S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE CUBA FINDS ITS WAY BACK TO THE FUTURE. DON’T MISS OUT ON THE OPPORTUNITY TO DOCUMENT HISTORY AND LEAVE YOUR VERY OWN PHOTOGRAPHIC LEGACY.”

WHY A PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE IN CUBA?
“Shoot what it feels like, not what it looks like.”

David Alan Harvey.

Like a diamond in the rough, Cuba is raw and unpolished but hides many wonders: from the vibrant music scene, cobble stone streets and passionate dancing of Havana to Trinidad’s colonial pastel-painted houses, to the limestone hills that cut through the lush green hills of Viñales. It’s the ideal place to give in to your senses and shoot what it feels like.

It’s storied past, unique contrasts and laid-back Caribbean lifestyle have attracted many great photographers over time such as David Alan Harvey, Alex Webb and Susan Meiselas, and now, with Raw Photo Tours, you too can have the opportunity of capturing Cuba’s unique essence.

THE EXPERIENCE
“Cuba has been a great tour, well organised by Christelle & Jorge. Christelle pays attention to every last detail in order to make your experience a great one and Jorge always gives great advice and constantly helps you to improve your photography skills. They are a great team and wonderful travel mates. Looking forward to my next trip with them!”

Istanbul Street & Storytelling Workshop

Istanbul Airport

Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul. It’s the only city to have been the capital of two great empires (Greek and Roman) and is unique in that it straddles the continents of Europe and Asia making it quite literally the meeting place of east and west.

It’s an urban cultural center rich with the incandescence of its past. A melting pot of old and new from its minarets and contemporary art galleries, to the bazars and trendy cafés, traditional crafts and designer clothing, not to forget the Hammams and night clubs…

But what is most appealing about the city are its people who have an infectious love of life and generosity of spirit. It’s no wonder that Istanbul has enthralled Alex Webb since 1998, and it’s right here in this vibrant city where we will be teaching you how to take your street and storytelling skills to the next level!

YOUR MENTOR:

Jorge Delgado-Ureña: Resident Mentor & Co-founder
Renown Spanish photographer, resident teacher and co-founder of Raw Photo Tours, Jorge has over 15 years of experience in photography and an innate ability for teaching.

THE EXPERIENCE:
“Everything is thought out and organized so that the only thing I had to do was think about photography. If I had a problem or question in the field, the Raw Society was there to answer and help on the spot. The locations were scouted in advance and the programming was streamlined so that the good light was available. Each photographer had free reign to learn as much or as little as they chose. And, the workshop was just over-the-top, FUN!”
Stephanie D. Austin Texas.

Group: 5-8 people

Nepal Workshop

London Gatwick Airport

“NEPAL WAS THE STARTING POINT OF INSPIRATION AND GREATNESS FOR STEVE MC CURRY, TINO SORIANO AND SEVERAL OTHER PHOTOGRAPHY MASTERS. IT CAN BE YOURS TOO!”

WHY A PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE IN NEPAL?
It’s where it all started. Not just for us, but for master photographers like Steve McCurry and Tino Soriano as well, and if there’s one thing that we all have in common, it’s that Nepal holds a very special place in our hearts.

This is the only part of the world that really grabs me, you have this fascinating link with the past.

-Steve McCurry

And he’s right! From the moment you set foot in the chaos of Kathamndu’s airport, you will be grasped by a feeling you’ve never felt before: A mixture of curiosity, confusion, excitement, and hurry, hurry to start your photographic adventure.

YOUR MENTOR
Jorge Delgado-Ureña: renown Spanish photographer, resident teacher and co-founder of Raw Photo Tours, Jorge has over 15 years of experience in photography and an innate ability for teaching.

Mississippi Delta Storytelling Workshop

Memphis International Airport

“TO UNDERSTAND THE WORLD, YOU MUST FIRST UNDERSTAND A PLACE LIKE MISSISSIPPI” – WILLIAM FAULKNER

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
The Mississippi Delta is a place of raw authenticity with its rollicking juke joints, plate-lunch cafes and boarded-up towns with markers revealing the stories of blues legends, civil rights heroes and history-making moments that changed the nation.

It is in this unique setting in which we’ll be hosting our 7-day photography workshop focused on documentary photography and storytelling led by Jorge Delgado-Ureña and guest mentor Rory Doyle.
