About this pro

I know you want to learn to take photography. I know you want to learn how to use your camera. I know you want to learn to take good portraits and memories of your travels. I also know that photography could change your world. What if you can do all that in a fun way?

With me you will learn to familiarize yourself with your camera, to take better photos and to feel safe and comfortable when taking photos. I'm not going to stuff you with technical terms and sophisticated formulas. You can learn that in another school. Let's go to the point. Let's have a good time and take pictures.

I am a professional photographer, photojournalist, and food blogger from Cuba now based in the Washington, DC area. I have a degree in journalism from the University of Havana and I have been working as a photographer and writer for more than 20 years in Havana.  I spend most of my time photographing the daily life I see around me.  I am also the creator of Thru Cuban Eyes a travel company to bring people to Cuba.
