Testimonials for Focus on the Story Workshops, previously known as Focused Photo Adventures

“Cuba is an amazing place for photography. That said, had I gone by myself I never would have had access to the types of photography I was able to get with FPA. Joe’s knowledge of the ‘hidden Cuba,’ with local contacts made a good trip great… I really feel like I was able to see and photograph the ‘Real Cuba’ and get to know the people that live there.”

“We had great conversations with some of the locals, saw some of the less-known places, explored both the urban and natural landscapes, ate delicious food, and listened to amazing live music — which we captured through photography. Joe also provided helpful tips and took his time to walk me through different techniques. This was one of my most memorable trips, and I highly recommend exploring Cuba or other destinations with FPA.”

— Betsy Law

“I toured Havana, Cuba, with Focused Photo Adventures in June of 2016: It was one of the best experiences of my life, from a personal and photographic standpoint… If you are interested in seeing and capturing this beautiful city and country before they’re transformed by overdevelopment and commercialism, you should go now, and book with Focused Photo Adventures. You will be greatly rewarded… I was.”

“I thoroughly fell in love with Cuba thanks to Focused Photo Adventures…Focused Photo Adventures was very flexible and allowed us to choose some of our own shoots. In one case, they even arranged a custom shoot for me that involved the bunker from the Cuban Missile Crisis. Can you say awesome?”

“… I recently toured Cuba with FPA led by its knowledgeable operator, Joe Newman. Weeks before our departure he gave relevant, thorough and useful information on what to expect, useful tips for navigating Cuba as well as a very delightful itinerary. He was flexible, friendly, knowledgeable and supportive throughout the trip.”
