***June 24th Update!***
We received confirmation on the additional rooms, and everyone on the wait list should be processed and confirmed by tomorrow. I have closed the RSVP to any new people at this time. We have already become a large group of about 30 people, and any larger might be difficult to manage. For those of you who come across this too late to join, I am sorry that you will not be able to join us, but if all goes well with this trip, then perhaps we will be brave enough to organize another trip somewhere else next spring.
We should have our final attendee list in a couple days with everyone confirmed up. We can start working on itineraries then. I hope to organize a social for our group in early August.
It's Official!!! We are going to Havana, Cuba!!!!
The pre-booked rooms are now all sold out. There is now a waiting list being created as we request more rooms from the hotel. We have 13 people confirmed and 9 people waiting currently. The rooms will be available first to the top of the waiting list so it is important to get on the list if you are still interested.
There is no reason to be discouraged yet. While the rooms are not a guarantee, there is still a very good chance you can be accommodated. We have put in a request for more rooms and are waiting to hear back. So if you want to go, do not delay, contact me please by email or call me and I will put you in touch with our agent to get you on that list.

What will we do for the 7 days?
This trip is suitable for adults who want the experience of traveling with other photographers for 7 day photographic intensive trip. Everyday we will have an itinerary centered around photography. You can opt in and join us, or go off and do your own thing. It will be your choice. Otherwise plan for 7 days of exploring and photographing Havana, as well as day trips to places just outside of Havana, and enjoying the nightlife and live music come evening.
