EST. 2000

Born and raised in the Philippines, Alfonso Calero moved to Australia at the age of 15. I  graduated from the Sydney Institute of Technology with an Associate Diploma in Photography in 2001 and have been professionally photographing food, portraits, landscapes and travel subjects ever since. I started a travel education and tours company in 2008 delivering workshops every Saturday morning in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Fremantle. I also take small groups to Japan, The Philippines, Spain and Tasmania once a year for 5-10 day photography workshops. For more information about his tours and workshops go to www.alfonso.com.au
