Joerg Reichardt

Joerg Reichardt is a German photographer, specializing in portrait, scenic and documentary photography, with a practical photography experience now over 35 years. Joerg’s photographs have appeared in editorials, magazines from Mondo Uomo to Vogue, he did advertisings campaigns for international brands like Puma, Nikon, Absolut Vodka and has focused now manly on portrait photography. Joerg got his first camera in his hand at the age of seventeen. He felt a strong natural attraction as if it had always belonged to him. This attraction has remained to this days. His career began in Berlin and took him to Paris, Milan and New York, where he lived and worked over 10 years as a fashion photographer. In the year 2000 he decided to come back to Berlin, where he lives and works now as an advertising and portrait photographer. 10 years ago, out of a spontaneous decision, he came the first time to Havana. Fascinating and paradoxical, the city once known as the “Paris of the Western Hemisphere” embraced him, and he fell in love with the city. and since then he shares his time between Havanna and Berlin. Joerg teaches you his philosophy on photography, how to develop concepts, work on the street, take portraits, shoot with natural light, and bring images to life in post-production.

Photo Workshop Formats

Masterclasses are reserved for those who are looking for a more intense learning experience and like to master a higher level of a photographic approach. Workshops are aimed at enthusiastic photo seekers who want to expand their photographic skills through a sound artistic basis and the opportunity to apply them immediately in an exciting photographic environment on very exciting visual tours. Photo Adventures and Tours are both sightseeing and photography, some have a more intensive learning experiences and others are more relaxed. But one thing remains constant... we are always on vacation.... photographing, learning and getting away inspired.

Photo Masterclass

Joerg Reichardt's Masterclasses are reserved for those who are looking for a more intense learning experience. These can sometimes involve classroom lectures, depending on the location. Joerg's Masterclass is more demanding, because it requires a lot of empathy and a sense of form and rhythm. They typically focus on a particular discipline or set of disciplines, such as composition, exposure, lighting, fine art, black and white, street, reportage, boudoir, fashion etc. These are open to all who are interested, from beginner to professional.

Photo Adventure & Tours

Our photo adventures and tours are photo-centric, and have a more specific theme, like the African Culture in Cuba and its Santería religion, or Havana Heritage, about the architectural gems of the city, or the Impala 59 Tour, about to drive a classic vintage beauty, but are also designed to appeal to both the photographer and non-photographer. Besides great a great experience and amazing locations, expect to come away with a greater understanding of what it takes to capture a great photo. Our objective is to help guide you through your approach when looking through the viewfinder. There are literally thousands of photos surrounding us at any given time. How we choose what we shoot, how we frame or compose, and how we expose, are often the deciding factors to a great photo.
