Our instructor Nikki was excellent. Very patient, friendly and knowledge. I learnt so much about taking great photos with my iPhone and using Snapseed to filter my photos to get different effects. I would be happy to attend another class with Nikki. Our location was the beautiful Brisbane city, this is a value for money class. Highly recommend it. Regards Robyn

Smartphone Photography Course



you could download the app and do this yourself. It was mostly walking around and taking photos of things and then playing with the app. Didn't learn much. No fed back from the photos taken after the 2nd place visited. would not recommend this as knew most of it and my daughter already knew this and was showing me how to use the app and things


Reply from this teacher:

Appreciate your review despite being the first ever 3 stars (usually 4-5 stars). On the photo walk all my photo tutors are highly skilled at teaching. Feedback about your own photos is always available but not forced. Sorry to hear about your experience. Alfonso

Alfonso’s class was great! As a newbie he explained things well, with just the right level of detail (rather than confuse), and also lined up some cool hands-on experience during the class - in particular with an unexpected Indian taxi that we used to practice shutter speed work. His free ebook is a really helpful tool that I’ve continued to use since the class too. I’m planning on joining one of his night lessons soon!

Very nice teaching, knew thoroughly about camara and photography. Though I had the camera for few years, I did not know a thing about different manual settings. With the money. Good that I attended the class.

Chris was a great teacher. He addressed every concern we had and helped my son, who had a Huawei phone (while everybody else had Samsung or Apple). Chris taught us every part of our phone camera and most of what was in Snapseed. Overall, an informative and well-executed workshop. We enjoyed it. Thank you Chris!

I loved the 3 hour smartphone photography class led by Alfonso. He is an engaged and knowledgeable teacher who was able to keep me and the other students fascinated throughout the afternoon. We were a diverse group and Alfonso's charm and wit, combined with his technical understanding of photography allowed for an interactive afternoon of learning and laughter. I highly recommend this course led by Alfonso for anyone like me who used their smartphone camera all the time without understanding basic elements of photography

Alfonso was a wonderful teacher and my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. We're already booked in for the night photography course and can't wait to enjoy another of Alfonso's classes. I learnt some really great, simple, and quick tips that improved my photography immediately. I feel like I've got so many more tools to shoot better and do all the things I wanted to do with my camera. I have a Canon 750D so entry level DSLR but I enjoy photography when I travel. Alfonso has given me much more confidence in being able to shoot great holiday  + more

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.

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!

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 Martin

Beginner DSLR / Hybrid Photography Course



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.


Pauline Forster Mar 2019

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.

Suggest in future that it would be useful to have separate classes for Android/Samsung and iPhone.

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  + more
