What you'll do

This experience consists of an approach to analog photography in its most classic style: large format (guests are free to include works in other formats, as well as ask for assistance and advice; maintenance service will even be provided for classic cameras that will be specified on my page). The experience has two stages that will take place on the same day. First stage: theoretical introduction to photographic equipment management and emotional connection with the practice of photography as art (it will be possible to clarify all doubts and curiosities that arise during the process). Second stage: practical photography class (at this stage, guests will be able to photograph the spaces specified in the "Where will we go" section). Afterwards, I will reveal the film and send the pictures to the guests.

Your hosts

My name is Asbel Paz Torres, I am an artist and I work in depth analog photography in different formats (35 mm, medium format and large format). I have extensive knowledge about the history and technique in this work, from the camera to the laboratory. I am a graduate of the National Academy of Visual Arts "San Alejandro" and the analog and laboratory photography workshops offered by the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA).

What's included

Equipment
Eventually, guests will be able to work with a large format handmade camera.

Where you'll be

The first stage will take place on a ruined roof that sits on top of a hill, right next to a small amusement park, from which you can see the city (among the places that stand out you can find the Capitol, in Old Havana). The second stage will then consist of a photo session, so that guests can photograph the urban space.

Availability

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Film, 4x5, B&W (optional)

More tips

Guests must have the physical conditions necessary for the experience, since they will be working with a relatively heavy equipment (cameras, large tripods, briefcase with lenses, plate holders, etc.), as well as the curiosity and patience necessary for this type of work.
