Alfonso provided excellent tuition, gaining an early insight into my needs and my related interests, and then tailoring the morning accordingly. His knowledge of my camera and its capabilities was extraordinary. He also utilised the available subjects in the Rocks and Sydney CBD to greatest value. A very patient teacher, Alfonso recognised my level of expertise and expanded on my... More

I have lived in Sydney all my life but after spending an afternoon with Alfonso in front of a camera, I have a totally new perspective. I found Alfonso very helpful, patient and generous. Although I don't own an SLR camera, he still managed to help me with my Nikon and I think I learned so much in 3 hours.... More

I've been shooting for a while now, but Alfonso shared with me very insightful tips, comments and knowledge in both shooting and post processing, from not only the photographers point of view, but also from someone who regularly sits in the judge chair in many photo competitions. But on top of that, the best part was that he’s quite a... More

Alfonso Calero provided an excellent night time photography tour of Sydney. I learned a lot about photographing at night time. He was very good in answering questions and helping me with my camera.

This was my first photo workshop and I expected there would be an employee doing the photo tour. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Alfonso conducted my workshop. He is very personable, patient and informative as a teacher. I did the day and night tour in Sydney. He picked out great locations and we learned a variety of techniques... More

The morning was tailored to my requests and nothing was too much bother oor trouble, We covered architecture, composition, framing, light and exactly how to unlock the manual settings of the camera. Alfonso is very patient and interested in getting... More

Took the night photo workshop with Alfonso. He is a very good teacher. He adjusted his teaching to our level level of experience and camera skills. I learned several new techniques and also got some great shots of the Opera house and harbour. Great value for beginners and experienced photographers alike.

I had a gift voucher for the day and night tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Alfonso is a natural teacher and is keen to teach both technical and creative photography. By the end of the tour I felt confident to start shooting with the manual settings on my dslr. He gave a number of helpful pointers along the way and... More

I took the beginners course on a Saturday afternoon about two weeks ago, it was fantastic. There were three of us and right off the bat Alfonso assessed our skill levels, interests and capabilities with our cameras before assigning tasks that taught a variety of basic skills. Definitly recommend the beginners course if you're looking for some practical and everyday... More
