Luis Alarcón is a fantastic and relevant photographer but what really impressed me is his skills as a communicator and a teacher. He is very knowledgeable about technical camera things and a real expert in street photography. I learned tons with Luis specially how to deal with locals, highly recommend experience⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you my friend, it was a pleasure to guide you in this photo workshop where the intention was that your eyes were attentive to the wonderful streets of Havana and you learned to capture the essence in the midst of the great amount of action and people that can be seen. We keep in touch and congratulations on your photographs. You have many good ones and that is not easy to achieve :-)

Spent the day with Alfonso Blanco. A completely enjoyable and rewarding time. He opened doors I didn’t even know were there. We talked photography (of course) and a whole lot of other topics too. He was sensitive to my mobility problems and never forced the pace.

You are very kind with your comment. We try to make a photography tour in Havana through the less known and more photographic places, but we also care a lot to make it a human, cultural tour and take care of the photographers who visit Havana for the first time.

I hadn't planned on spending a day of photography in Havana without having prepared it in advance. So when I received the answer for an appointment the next day I was very surprised and delighted. The day was fantastic; I traveled around the city and even another part of the city accessible only by boat to take pictures of places that I would not have found by myself in such a short time. Alfonso my photographer has shown great attention and extraordinary professionalism. Thanks to him and his son-in-law who allowed me to spend such a beautiful time.

Thank you for your comment on our one-day photo tour through the streets of Havana. Whatever country you visit, there is nothing better than having the company of a fixer, it is the way in which you can discover the best photographic places in a new place. I hope you were satisfied with the photographs you took.

Havana that tourists don’t see! We spent a day with Alphonso Blanc and Alfredo Sarabia 2 professional photographers. Alfredo is also a photographer artist. These photographers are very kind and available to give us advice about the photo and about Havana. With them, we discovered another Havana that tourists don’t see. We went to photograph dancers during a rehearsal, a boxing school, a Cuban family. It is a total immersion of Havana unknown to tourists where people are very warm. We were pleasantly surprised and very pleased with our day. We do not hesitate to recommend these two photographers.

Thanks for your kind comment. Sorry I could not attend you personally but as I said Alfonso and Alfredo are fantastic Cuban photographers with a lot of experience in making photo tours in Havana less known to tourists. Thanks for trusting us.

I chose Luis's tour because it looked like an amazing way to take great photos in Cuba. It was SO much more than that! Luis and our local guide, Javiel, took me to places I'd never have seen on a "regular" tour. Not only did I see more of Cuba than I even knew existed (truly!) but Luis's easy rapport with the people we interacted with made each photo opportunity an amazing experience. I have never, ever, worked with a photographer like Luis. He taught me so much! I feel like I walked away from this trip a completely different person AND photographer. I can't thank him enough. Not only was the photographic experience unforgettable, the logistics (food, lodging, transportation, timing) of the entire week were seamless and made for the perfect background to a trip of a lifetime. I will never forget my time with Luis and Javiel -- and am so grateful to them both for a fantastic week!
