About this pro

With me you will learn to familiarize yourself with your camera and to take better photos as soon as the first class.

I am a professional photographer 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, photography instructor and writer for more than 20 years in Havana and now here in America.

I love to share experiences and techniques. I have a lot of patience with my students and I easily adapt to the student's learning pace.

Teaching is a very creative experience where both, professor and students learn.
