Event Details

Digital Transitions is partnering with Camera Voyages to provide an immersive and interactive workshop in picturesque Cuba.


Just 90 miles away from the continental US, Cuba is an amazing place with a rich and interesting culture to explore. Camera Voyages has been traveling to Cuba since 2013, and has deep connections to the communities as well as the art and music scenes.


This immersive and interactive workshop will truly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you to capture the essence and beauty of the Cuban culture through the lens of the latest Phase One Medium Format camera systems. This workshop is not like many of the regular workshop/tours that are out there – not only do we provide high-end gear and training for the attendees, but Camera Voyages’ impeccable reputation and experience in Cuban travel and photography enables us to provide access to places not normally available to regular tours.


The workshop is led by William Vazquez of Camera Voyages, Lance Schad of Digital Transitions, and Scott Nidermaier of Phase One. During the trip you will spend time in Havana shooting its wonderful architecture and people, as well as other unique subjects such as flamenco dancers, boxers training in open-air gyms, and fishermen along the Malecón to name a few. You will also travel outside Havana on an overnight road trip to experience the beautiful city of Trinidad. Along the way we will visit Cuba’s verdant farmlands to meet and photograph the daily lives of the people that work and live there. Review the full itinerary here.


As many of you are aware, Cuba is receiving a great deal of attention since the United States eased travel restrictions and reopened diplomatic relations there. With this in mind, now is the perfect time to join us and experience this beautiful country and its people before that changes.




Common Questions:


What Gear will we be bringing along?

We will have a number of latest Phase One XF Bodies and IQ4 digital backs, as well as a selection of Phase One Schneider Kreuznach LS lenses. We will also be bringing along technical camera solutions from Arca-Swiss & Cambo. This equipment will be available for all the attendees to reserve and share during the trip.


What if I do not want to share a Phase One System during the workshop?

If you do not share well with others, ask us about how you can reserve your own system for the workshop, or about our special packages to purchase a system prior to workshop.


What skill level should I be to attend this workshop?

This workshop is for designed those with more than a basic understanding of photography. We will spend time before and during the workshop familiarizing you with the Phase One and technical camera systems we will be bringing along. Also, each day prior to going out in the field we hold a briefing where we will provide tips to capture the best possible images.


What if I would like to bring a companion who is not a Photographer?

You are more then welcome to bring a companion (someone needs to carry the gear ;)). Please contact us for more details.
