Description


If you have a DSLR or hybrid camera that allows for manual control of your camera then this is the perfect course for you. You'll get to shoot Sydney's amazing cityscape, under my guidance.

You'll learn to control ISO, shutter speed & aperture expertly and creatively to produce beautiful low-light shots. I'll critique your photos so that you get the instant feedback you need to keep improving and expanding your perspectives. You'll become well acquainted with travel photography (street portraits, architecture, landscapes, still life, abstract, nature). You'll develop your technical skills whilst also discovering your personal creative style.

You'll get stunning shots no matter when you do this class, though Vivid Festival is always a highlight.

In the case of wet weather, this class may get cancelled; if that's the case you'll have the option of a refund or rescheduling.


Your Sydney teacher will be either:

Chris L Jones - an advertising, editorial and commercial photographer based in Sydney, Australia. He has worked with a wide range of clients and would describe himself as a lifestyle, people, food, travel and occasional art photographer.

Or Alfonso Calero (see more about him in the profile below)

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.

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.

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!

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

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

Q&A

I've got a 13year old daughter. I bought her a DSLR camera for her Birthday. Is it OK if she does the course but I come along with her to help her and be her guardian?

For insurance reasons and in fairness to all other customers, everyone who joins must be a paying customer. Otherwise, she is welcome to come alone if you give written consent. Hope you understand.
