This is the first photo tour I have done and wasn't disappointed. My wife and I walked the streets with Alfonso to some excellent vantage points around the rocks to try some zooming, light painting, long exposures, lunar landscapes........... The pictures speak for themselves. Highly recommend this tour if you want to see and capture Sydney by night or if... More

I'm a photography enthusiast, I know a bit about basic photography but sometimes (most of the times) didn't have the patient to set up the camera settings. So while in Sydney, I figured I learned more about photography and get some beautiful pictures of Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge, plus I also learn about light painting, which I... More

A photography tour is something I have never done before, I have always been a spot and shoot kind of photographer - this really made me consider what I was trying to capture. Really enjoyable and a great learning experience for me.

the Sydney Photography Tours night tour was entertaining, educational and most of all FUN. Our tour guides were knowledgeable in the skills and techniques of night photography and were able to demonstate and explain these in a clear manner. The locations we went to gave us the opportunity to take some great photos. The light painting techniques allowed us to... More

Although everyone in the day tour was at different levels of experience (me being at the very bottom), I still learned a lot about how to work with the camera to get the shot I want. As someone who relies on the 'auto' function it was an eye opener just how many options there are with a camera. I found... More

Hi, It was great having you on board and never under estimate your ability to be creative. Everyone has a visual voice they just need some guidance to find it or re-kindle it. I love teaching photography which has been my life long passion. Cheers, Alfonso More

Alfonso is a gifted teacher who will improve the way you look through a lens. This course is an absolute steal, getting the opportunity to spend a few hours with a professional photographer who really knows his field was an absolute pleasure. It doesn't matter whether you are a happy snapper or someone who has experience and is looking to... More

I originally did the 3 hour rocks day tour and was really impressed with the quality and value it provided. In 3 hours we covered many technical aspects of photography (apperture, shutter speed, white balance etc) as well as many of the creative elements (repetition, texture, dominance etc). This was all done in a friendly and relaxed manner and catered... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Alfonso is an expert, tentative and went at OUR pace. I am more confident in using my camera now after attending this course with Alfonso. The best thing is it was not the end after you said goodbye at the session. Alfonso includes us in his mail list and sends tips and updates on... More

Alfonso Calero's photography tours are a must. If you enjoy photography then you'll find the time with Alfonso a great learning experience. I did 2 tours in Sydney and plan to do more when I go back at the end of the year. Highly, highly recommended.
