Presentation Wednesday 12 February 7.15pm Alfonso Calero – Landscape Photography

Alfonso Calero is a multi-award winning professional photographer who will discuss his approach to landscape photography. 

Alfonso says, “this job is a mix of all my past jobs. I used to be a Japanese and Spanish speaking tour-guide, taught English in Tokyo and a Professional Photographer for the last 20 + years. Specialising in People and Places as a travel photographer has given me the experience and versatility to shoot in different genres such as Landscape, Street Portraits, Nature, Wildlife and Architecture. The focus on most of my tours is landscapes but in cities, street portraits, architecture and night photography.”
