Sara Clapham Feb 2022

This was a good intro course. The teacher was great and able to cater the material to different levels. We had multiple locations we shot photos at and a different skill we learnt at each. Would recommend to any beginners who are wanting to get to know their camera settings a bit better.

Sadly due to poor health I had to miss the class. So why am I rating it so highly you might wonder? Well the communication about the course, feedback to questions such as equipment to bring, meeting place (several confirmation notes) and empathy when I had to postpone my session (I will definitely do it soon!) was absolutely superb. Alfonso's Tours and his tutors are not just super photographers, which would be super enough, but super people too. Thank you very much for your thoroughness, kindness and empathy.

Dwayne Evans Feb 2020

Teacher very good, thorough, well-spoken and explained everything well. Small class size, walked around a few sites in Melbourne applying each thing we were taught. Very good introduction to photography (I knew very little). 100% worth what I paid for the course, and more.
