What you'll do

We'll make high-quality photos using your digital camera and a tripod. I'll take you to some of the best vantage points for photographing the iconic Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, where you'll shoot photos good enough to hang on your wall. You'll learn how to master composition, the best settings for night or low-light photography, and how to explore the technical capabilities of your camera without shooting in auto mode.
Other things to note
Bring your own digital camera, not a smartphone camera. Please let me know in advance if you want to borrow a tripod.

Born and raised in the Philippines, I moved to Australia at 15. I graduated from the Sydney Institute of Technology with a photography diploma in 2000, and have been professionally photographing food, people, landscapes, and travel subjects ever since. I've also been teaching photography for 10 years. I have the best job in the world, and can't wait to show you the city I love.

Where you'll be

The Rocks is a historic area with great views of all of Sydney's iconic locations, such as the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. It became the birthplace of the English colony when Australia was invaded in 1788: convicts built the city out of sandstone from a nearby quarry.

Rated 4.80 out of 5 from 45 reviews.

Wonderful experience. Shot several locations around the rocks. Could have found these spots eventually, however when on vacation and time is of the essence book with Alfonso. Alfonso was on assignment so Chris instructed the course. He was personal, knowledgeable, and pays close attention to detail. Highly recommend this course!

Alfonso was out of town, so Chris taught the group. He was very kind, patient, and personable. Within 10 minutes of instructions, I noticed my photos looked 10Xs better. At the end, he gave a photography tip card, which is very useful. All of the good reviews are true. This is a very good class. They also offer more classes. (Note: I am a beginner photographer)

Alfonso knows his photography and he knows his city. He is very helpful and friendly. It was a top experience. The only remark I had, was that we stayed a little too long in the first location. I would have liked more locations. But that's a detail. You can participate with or without photography experience and that's really cool. I would recommend this to everybody!
