Alfonso was a great teacher. He tried to get to know us first and gauge our skill level with photography so that he could tailor fit the class to our needs. I loved the creative challenges we had and the encouragement and constructive criticism he would give after each challenge. He was also very friendly and chatty and gave us... More

Travelling solo in Sydney and wanted to develop my photography skills. Some of the gear but no idea. This is where Alfonso stepped in to give a guiding tour, physically and photographically! Covered the manual settings of the camera and ideas for developing picture composition. Alfonso has good communication skills and knows where to get some excellent shots. Would definitely... More

Saturday 13 August 2016 I along with a group of enthusiastic photographers, took a guided tour with Alfonso, around the streets of St.Peters and Newtown photographing amazing graffiti art with the assistance of the local community who were more than happy to have their portraits included with the artwork we photographed. Alfonso, researches his tours thoroughly and is always ready... More

My wife and I spent 3 hours (that became 4) with Alfonso, learning new tricks and tips while gaining some insight into the history and charm of The Rocks. Alfonso took some time to really understand our level of experience, and what we wanted to learn. He was a very patient tutor, and explained things clearly. We both liked the... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic 6 hour Day & Night Photography Course with Alfonso and enjoyed seeing our own city with new eyes. His teaching style is fun, informative, passionate and inspiring. He was prompt to respond emails and went out of his way to cater our needs (e.g. camera hire.) Thank you for the wonderful experience and... More

Alfonso gave a very informative talk in our club. Very easy to approach, & he was a wealth of knowledge & information in photography. Looking forward to his visit again in August.

Alfonso has guided our photographic club with a couple of our projects. Alfonso contributed hugely to the successful outcomes; he demonstrated great photographic skill and understanding, and encouraged everyone to contribute and participate. We all benefitted greatly from the experience, and I certainly improved my photography skills in the process. I plan to do one of Alfonso’s night-time walks around... More

Alfonso, met us at Madrid airport and a week later dropped us off at Madrid airport and handled all the arrangements in between: lodging, food, cooking lessons, flamenco guitar lesson, great teacher of photography (especially, food photography) and editing. He was always there, eagerly offering and helping us, making sure everything was to our liking. We had a great, great... More

I have done a few Photographic Tours in different places with different groups and without a doubt, Alfonso was the best yet. His obvious love of his craft and his determination to help was great. He went out of his way to meet our group before we finalised our booking to get to know what our expectations were and after... More

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
