Reviews

"“Alfonso is the most knowledgable photographer/teacher we have met so far, he has so much to offer to his students. He will teach everything you need to know about photography in a way that's very easy to understand. I'm so glad my husband and I have attended the workshop, we both agreed this workshop is well worth the money and would recommend it to our friends.”

One of the best decisions in my visit to Sydney was having a private Photography Workshop with Alfonso Calero, he is not only a great photographer, but also a very good teacher. He told me different options for maximizing the tools of my camera, and myself being a Nikon user and Alfonso using Canon.

We met at Luna Park to take some photos below the Bridge, and also moved to different spots that Alfonso knows perfectly well, each one of this spots gave me wonderful shooting options. The Opera House, the Bridge, and the city all of them at sunset and night allowed me to take home beautiful pictures of Sydney. 

If you are visiting Sydney and interested in photography, don't hesitate to call Alfonso or vist his web page, you will remember this experience for a long time.

The Tasmania Photography Tour built my confidence and Alfonso has been very generous with his time and advice after the trip, following up with editing and any questions I had about equipment, inquiries and "trouble shooting" tips.

 If you have a decent camera and you want to learn to use it properly then one of Alfonso's photographic tours is what you need. 

Your confidence will improve and you will soon be taking much better photographs using the different settings on your camera.

Brisbane based commercial photographer specialising in event, portrait and wedding photography with a Bachelor Degree in Photography from Griffith University in Southbank, Brisbane. Trip Advisor review: Nikky was a great host and tutor and very informative throughout. We covered a good range of subjects from basic settings to slightly more complex settings, but nothing too taxing. Good subjects had been picked out by Nikky and we spent a fair bit time at each one and never rushed.
