In praise of Beauty and Grace Photography Workshop with Ramses Batista and Rad Drew
Hear what photographers are saying about Ramses Batista and Rad Drew's Beauty and Grace Photography Workshop photographing dancers with the Cuban National Ballet in Havana!
"I can not say enough positives about the experience. Never in my wildest dreams did I believe that I would have access to photograph 16 Cuban dancers. By the last day, I was giddy from the experience. It proved way beyond any expectations. Job very well done, Ramses and Rad. "

"Still on a high from the workshop which was amazing in so many ways. Ramses' patience with me while I was struggling with my flash, I will never forget. I learned so much about flash photography, composition, and portraits. I have looked at my photos and love what I took!"

"I have just started to review the photos, overwhelmed by the beauty; of the dancers, of the dance, of the place, of the situations that Ramses and Rad created and shared with all of us. It is clearly one of the highlights of my photography life."

"In January 2023 I participated in my second photo tour with Rad Drew and Ramses Batista. One tour focused on dancers in Havana, while the second tour included Vinales and Trinidad. Both tours were co-led with Ramses Batista, a photographer born and raised in Cuba, and both tours were very well organized. Ramses and Rad are both excellent photographers, who are well experienced in Cuba and brought our groups to excellent venues. A pre-tour zoom meeting with the group served to introduce all to what we should expect or not. If you like traveling with a tour leader who is a great teacher and knows the territory, Rad and Ramses' tours should be high on your list of considerations."

"Every session was planned with the student in mind! ... and we were exposed to delicious Cuban cuisine, not to mention yummy Cuban ice cream! A bonus is the award-winning photos and memories we will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you so much!"
