I really enjoyed learning smart phone photography techniques from Peter our teacher, an excellent award winning photographer. I have used Snapseed before so wasn't a complete beginner. In some ways I would have loved more information on a deeper level of Snapseed editing but this course is perfect for beginners who are looking at bringing life, edge and style to their photography.

I had a wonderful night and took some great photos. Alfonso was very personable and it was easy to ask questions. His teaching was very much to each individual, rather than general teaching to the whole group. I was expecting a little more guidance on the composition of photos, but still got some great shots!

I thoroughly enjoyed the day and night photography sessions. Peter took us through a hands on, practical exploration of using our cameras in a variety of interesting settings. I can now use my camera in a whole new way... adapting to varying conditions and producing effects that has opened up a whole new world.

Alfonso is an excellent teacher! He took me through the manual settings of my DSLR, gave me equipment suggestions, showed me how to use Lightroom to edit photos, and gave me some great tips for how to conduct a successful shoot. Would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn specific skills or wants to become more familiar with your camera and get a bit of photography confidence!

Chris Jones was such a great teacher! He definitely knows his stuff, and has a fantastic bedside manner.
I'm so pleased with this purchase; my partner and I might look to use Chris's services again in future.
Perfect for all skill levels.
Chris's own portfolio is a testament to his skill as a photographer, but engaging with him , you realise he's a fantastic teacher and personable individual as well.
Thanks!

We were very pleased with the course and our teacher. Chris was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. The course covered both general artistic improvement and , for me, showed me the capabilities of the latest smart phone technology
As I am hiking for a couple of months in Europe in a few weeks it convinced me that a phone is all that is required to capture my journey
I recommend it to beginners and experienced DSRL photographers
Many thanks

Fantastic introduction to the basics. Our teacher Chris was engaging, interesting and full of great tips and tricks to help maximize the iPhone camera at our fingertips. It was also a brilliant way to explore a gorgeous part of Sydney - would highly recommend for the newbie photo buff in all of us ✌

My daughter and I really enjoyed the course. Chris was great and very informative and it was really lovely to walk around The Rocks and see and photo some of the history of the area.

Venue was perfect compliment to an extremely knowledgeable teacher. Alonso has an awesome ability to keep it simple whilst achieving maximum results. Money well spent and highly recommend! I'll be back

Great teacher and outstanding location photographing around The Rocks. The day class covered a lot of technical material and evening was more experimentation. Both well worth doing.

Our Teacher was Chris, not Alfonso.

I felt that the lesson could be structured a little better. He started off talking about P mode on the camera, we went off to take some photo's and then only after that did he teach us more fundamentals such as how to hold the camera and to ensure our lens was clean.

I learnt a lot about the technical aspects of photography (iso, aperture, shutter speed) but not so much about composition.

Loved the day even with a few rain showers Alfonso Kept us busy and dry even though we were out doors. He is an expert and taught us how to get the best out of our camera and our shots. Highly recommended for all levels. I am a beginner and I learnt so much. There were 6 of us and he explains everything clearly and helped everyone. Don't miss his classes they are a must. Thank you Alfonso for dropping my friend and I off on your way home, so much appreciated on a rainy evening.

I learnt so much about the camera features on the smartphone and different ways of editing pictures. So glad I did the class.
5

• Feb 2019


It was a very good course. I learned quite a lot of things from Alfonso. I felt confident controlling the camera after I've been to the course. I'll definitely recommended this course to anyone.
5

• Feb 2019


I throughly enjoyed this course, Alfonso was great. He covered everything from perspective, lighting and angles. He showed us how to adjust our pictures to achieve the best results. I would highly recommend this course and I will be doing a few more in the future.

Alfonso went out of his way to accomodate me, great tuition and insight. Would highly recommend his services

I bought this for my father for a gift and he loved it. The instructor, location and class material were all amazing and he hasn't stopped talking about it. Definitely recommend.

Chris was very helpful with iPhone photography but the invitation for the course indicated that it was for camera not iphone. We had 2 Samsung owners and 1 Sony so we were not all on the same page. No instructions at all for camera photography during the course. Location good and lots of opportunities to use Snapseed and learn it.
4

• Feb 2019


Teacher did really well considering there were so many different phone types among the participants.
Venue was fun and tip sheet was good except not entirely relevant to my phone.
I did gain some basic knowledge to help on my journey to find out how to take better photos with my smartphone.
Suggest in future that it would be useful to have separate classes for Android/Samsung and iPhone.

• Jan 2019


Alfonso was attentive and made sure each of us received tips on the various settings. Easy walk to 3 nearby locations to try shots at sunset, bright night lights and different effects. We had our own tripods, however, mine had a problem and I borrowed one of his spares.
5

• Jan 2019


Fantastic course, Very knowledgeable teacher, useful information explained simply, well worth the money for time
5

• Jan 2019


I thoroughly enjoyed my class with Alfonso and feel that I came away from it with a much improved knowledge on taking photos at night.
5

• Dec 2018


Very informative and Alfonso structured the course exactly to what my needs were. He talked to through everything and made sure I understood and grasped the concept before putting it into practice which was great. We were fortunate enough to have all kinds of weather which was great for experimenting with different techniques, especially using the manual setting.
Great time, very informative, great value for money, I would highly recommend Alfonso to anyone looking to learn about photography.
5

• Dec 2018


I was very fortunate to have a one to one night photography course with Alfonso.
He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and patient. In 2 hours I learned so much about camera settings, composition, understanding light conditions among lots of other skills. The course was not expensive and gave me real value for money.
This course has really set me up to go out and practice my long exposure photography with confidence, really happy with my light trails shots.
Thank you Alfonso, great course!

Alfonso was a great teacher he showed us practical tips which built upon each other. He didn’t let some rain stop him from giving us a great class either. Would check out another of Alfonso’s classes for sure.
5

• Dec 2018


This class was beyond expectations. Our guide Chris (who filled in for Alfonso) was fantastic. He was easy to follow and a great combination of what we were doing and how to do it and then actually putting it into practice. Chris made sure that we then knew what we were doing after we had left.
I was surprised with how much I can do with the smartphone (did you know you can make buildings look straight?- to know more do the course!) as well as editing on the go- so quick and fun. Already I am making use of what I have learnt.
It was a practical coarse as well as really lovely wondering around The Rocks and seeing it through a photographers eye.
A great afternoon.
Thank you

Chris was my tutor. He was knowledgeable, friendly and informative. I was a little disappointed that the weather turned bad but this gave us an opportunity to sit down and talk about camera settings. I learnt things about my camera that I didn't know about. All in all it was a great 3 hours and I would rebook next time I visit Sydney. Thanks Chris.

One of the best time and money investments I've made in a while! Alfonso is both knowledgable in his trade and great at teaching - a combination that very few people can master. His insights have served me well since the class and the handout he provided is SO helpful! Can't recommend this class enough - if you're thinking about it, do it! You won't regret it!
5

• Nov 2018


My smartphone photography knowledge has definitely increased drastically. Thank you for all the tips Chris, I now know what to do with all the camera functions, feel like having a brand new phone again.

An enjoyable & informative few hours... Alfonso is an experienced instructor & I picked up a few good tips on editing!
5

• Oct 2018


This course was engaging and lots of fun. Alfonso was a very good teacher and explained things in an easy to understand way.

He set interesting challenges to illustrate his points and we edited photos on site - which was great. He took us to outstanding locations where we practiced what we had learnt.

A thoroughly enjoyable learning experience and I think my photos have really improved as a result.

We had a small group and Chris, the instructor, spent a few minutes asking everyone our level of experience and familiarity with our cameras so he could introduce us to the best way to use them and the light at night.
Having learnt to take photos in the days of film Chris showed me how digital cameras have added new abilities to taking pictures that allow someone to make the best of low light and sunsets.
Our time featured photos around the Rocks, Circular Quay and the Opera House including how to take wide outside shots, up close interiors and long exposures in conditions that would seem far too dark to get a good shot.
Chris was a great teacher and provided lots of practical hints and tips as we went along and a business card cheat sheet to help remember what we were learning. As a professional photographer, his knowledge was extensive and he easily translated that into ways that non-pros could use.
I went with another family member and we both rated it as excellent and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their night photography skills.

The class was very good value for money. Alfonso didn’t take the class but Chris was good. The venue was really good and the course help me to consolidate a lot of what I had learnt. I learnt how to use my tripod better and it help me understand my manual functions and camera settings better. Thank you
5

• Sep 2018


I enjoyed the lesson conducted by Chris Jones. I have no prior training in photography or art and so it was fascinating for me to learn from Chris about the way a photo should be composed and what I should look out for. Chris was patient in his explanation and made the lesson interesting and stressless.
5

• Sep 2018


Great class. Alfonso knew his stuff and made the teachings enjoyable. Well paced and easy enough to follow. Really enjoyed exploring my local area looking through a different lens.
5

• Aug 2018


It was amazing, I learned so much about my own camera, learned about photo composition, controlling ISO, aperture , and shutter speed it was so good, and walking around the Rocks it was so good, recommended definitely.
so many tips!! especial learn so much about my own camera !!!!!
Thank so much Alfonso and Chris!!

Alfonso is an excellent teacher. I see images from a different perspective now. Thank you for opening up our minds with new skills from behind the camera.

Excellent teacher and mentor spent the time to understand my son 16yrs old his current level and what he wanted to achieve in the session. Highly recommend his services.

Excellent, Alfonso was a great teacher, with a lot of technical knowledge and some unexpected insights on the history of the Rocks, making it really worth doing. I recommend this to anyone who wants to increase their knowledge
5

• Jul 2018


Alfonso was very friendly and attentive. He gave us a basic setting and then asked us to experiment with a stop either way to learn the difference. His experience obviously helped to achieve the excellent results we achieved. Even introducing “tricks” to create artistic appeal.
Knowledge of ideal locations made for a great evening

• Jun 2018


Alfonso is a consummate professional who's expertise in his field shows through in this class. I'm a qualified trainer and can therefore make for a tough student ... but the way the course was structured and delivered was fun and informative ... which meant we learnt a lot!!! Worth every cent.

Was a perfect introductory class for amateur photographers! Very informative! Got some amazing shots! Thankyou so much for squeezing us in!
