In Cuba, how you see daily life depends on where you place your focus. To appreciate the allure of this misunderstood country, you need the right angle, lighting, and lens.

So it makes sense that a great way to find Havana’s hidden gems is to roam the lesser-known neighborhoods and back alleys with a professional photographer, like Reno, who loves to seek out unique perspectives of the city.

Reno has lived his entire life in Havana. He has traveled the island on foot and by bicycle, shooting countless photos from east to west. Besides being a loving husband, father, and professional photographer, Reno delights in welcoming guests from the rest of the world and teaching them about Cuba.

An encounter with Reno often entails getting up early and going to an unexplored area of the city, like Regla (the neighborhood known for Santeria priests in Havana), to take pictures of the daily rituals. The time spent with him goes by quickly, full of stories, fun, and photographic advice. Needless to say, Reno is the man if you’re looking for a more in-depth understanding of Cuba and her people through your lens.
