Met Alfonso in Kiama for an evening shoot in Bombo Quarry and a sunrise shoot at Cathedral Rocks. These locations are terrific and even though the weather didn't give us the full moon or morning colour we had hoped for, Alfonso had great suggestions to make the most of our time and I came away with a couple of top...

Alfonso was a fantastic teacher. Took his time with us all and went over the skills several times until we grasped it well. Very happy with the small group size too. Thanks Alfonso - highly recommend!

Alfonso was a great teacher. He tried to get to know us first and gauge our skill level with photography so that he could tailor fit the class to our needs. I loved the creative challenges we had and the encouragement and constructive criticism he would give after each challenge. He was also very friendly and chatty and gave us... More

Travelling solo in Sydney and wanted to develop my photography skills. Some of the gear but no idea. This is where Alfonso stepped in to give a guiding tour, physically and photographically! Covered the manual settings of the camera and ideas for developing picture composition. Alfonso has good communication skills and knows where to get some excellent shots. Would definitely... More

Alfonso, researches his tours thoroughly and is always ready... More

My wife and I spent 3 hours (that became 4) with Alfonso, learning new tricks and tips while gaining some insight into the history and charm of The Rocks. Alfonso took some time to really understand our level of experience, and what we wanted to learn. He was a very patient tutor, and explained things clearly. We both liked the... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic 6 hour Day & Night Photography Course with Alfonso and enjoyed seeing our own city with new eyes. His teaching style is fun, informative, passionate and inspiring.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
