Very Knowledgeable on Photography and Sydney. I am an amateur photographer at best and I learned more about my camera in 3 hours than I have in the two years I have owned it. I enjoyed the Night class so much I booked the Day class two days later.

Blessed with a warm June night during Vivid Alfonso took me around, taught me lots about night photography & helped me achieve some great shots. He knows the best vantage points & passed on some great tips to help get great shots. Great for any Sydney visitor who wants to advance their photographic skills & get some great shots of... More

Great teacher, relaxed night during Vivid. Plenty of time at each location to learn and practice. Lots of fun.

Alfonso was very knowledgable and a really good (and patient!) tutor. I did the night photgraphy course and would highly recommend it, especially to first time visitors to Sydney. I look forward to doing his other courses when I next visit.

From the minute I met Alfonso I felt relaxed.....he is a great mentor! Firstly he asked about my goals and what I was hoping to achieve, then explained the plan for the afternoon. I wasn't disappointed and now know exactly what I'm looking for when I'm thinking about my shots....the concise information and shortcuts he gave me will be just... More

Alfonso allowed me to gain a different perspective of the Rocks through this tour. Incorporating basic photography techniques that Alfonso so well explained on this walking tour led me to pay attention to details I had not noticed before of this area I thought I knew before. It was definitely an afternoon filled with fun snapping pictures with Alfonso!

You are a quick learner and had great creative ideas. It was fun taking you around the Rocks into areas you had not noticed before. Always a challenge to make what might initially look mundane into an extra ordinary shot. Well Done! Alfonso More

Fortunate to get the private tour, I gained some great education of photography principles and how to capitalize and all the capabilities of my DSLR. I learned how to verbalize principles I've been inadvertently using while learning how to correct some bad habits I started forming in my photography. Light painting was really fun & unique & I'll be trying... More

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.
