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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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.
