Why Figueredo?

Figueredo is different!

Figueredo (Volker Figueredo Véliz) is a German photographer who has lived and traveled Cuba for more than 15 years. He’s married to a Cuban woman, and today lives mainly in Havana. Figueredo is a celebrated Leica photographer who leads exclusive photographer tours of Havana and Cuba … tours that explore many unknown yet breathtaking places.

He’s visited most of the beautiful places for years and knows how to capture the Cuban hearts and souls of the island’s people through his lens. Figueredo has access to unique locations and venues that cannot be seen on a standard photographic journey led by a foreigner.



Why a Figueredo photography tour?

Cuba is an exotic dream for just about any photographer. It’s a place to capture the best photos of your life. Yet, there’s more to Cuba than the same photos of American vintage cars, old ladies smoking cigars, musicians and ocean waves breaking at the Malecon wall.

Any photography tour of Havana or Cuba requires the vision, experience and insight of a fellow accomplished photographer who lives the Cuba adventure year-around.



The German magazine STERN wrote about him on December 31st, 2017:
„Only few photographers are as close to the Cubans as Volker Figueredo Véliz.“
