Micro Adventures

Otway Ranges, Victoria

Otway Ranges, Victoria

Most people hibernate in winter but it is actually the best time of the year to shoot Australian landscapes. Sunrise times are not as early as summer. Astrophotography opportunities and conditions are much easier to handle better quality images.

Looking for a quick escape from the city to soak up some nature? We all need to re-charge our batteries and learn something new. Most importantly having fun in our outside classrooms is our prime goal. These short trips last for 3 days and are not too far from 5 of all Australia’s biggest cities. They are season and time specific. Weather can be unpredictable but with some luck you can come back with lots of amazing images.

Excellent street photography workshop
Alfonso recently took 18 members of my photographic club on a walking tour from Newtown station to St Peters, Sydney for a workshop on street portrait photography. The day prior to the workshop he sent an email to all participants to explain his approach. No photos of people would be taken without their permission and we would walk in groups of 3 or 4 people. The day was a complete success as Alfonso had planned several points along the way which provided good backdrops for portrait photography. At no stage did he take photos himself as he was committed to providing instruction - he spoke loudly and clearly and was receptive to all requests for clarification. He demonstrated fill flash by instructing the owner of a 4/3rds camera and the owner of an SLR on their own cameras. I can recommend him for photographic tuition without reservation.

Great scenes and photos. Learned tremendous amount. Alfonso was very patient.

Alfonso was brilliant! I did the photography using your smart phone lesson. I can’t believe the quality that you can get from your smart phone. Alfonso was knowledgeable and passionate and the setting was unique and awe inspiring (The Rocks and Circular Quay). As a Sydney local, I felt like I was seeing Sydney for the first time. Wow!

I did the night tour with Alphonso and it was so much fun. Alphonso is so down to earth and approachable and was not at all intimidating to a newbie like me. I learnt so much about using the different settings on my camera and came away with some lovely photos. You can tell he loves his work and is genuinely interested in trying to teach you.
