I wish to reduce the spacing between the personal information column and the photo column in moderncv classic style.

Here is a MWE

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{classic}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\firstname{John}
\familyname{Doe}

\address{83 Fancy Avenue}{Noweheresville}{Gotham City 24061} 
\phone[mobile]{123 456 7890}
\email{someone@xyz.com}
\photo[64pt][0.5pt]{example-image-a}

\begin{document}
   \makecvtitle
\end{document}

which produces

moderncv header with photo spacing marked up

How can I control/reduce/fine-tune the horizontal space indicated in the above PDF output?

Change the value of \separatorcolumnwidth to the value you need.

See for example the code (see marked code with <=======`):

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{classic}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\firstname{John}
\familyname{Doe}

\address{83 Fancy Avenue}{Noweheresville}{Gotham City 24061} 
\phone[mobile]{123 456 7890}
\email{someone@xyz.com}
\photo[64pt][0.5pt]{example-image-a}

\setlength{\separatorcolumnwidth}{0mm} % <==============================

\begin{document}
   \makecvtitle
\end{document}

and its result:

To get the usual distance back after the title just use \setlength again:

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\moderncvstyle{classic}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\firstname{John}
\familyname{Doe}

\address{83 Fancy Avenue}{Noweheresville}{Gotham City 24061} 
\phone[mobile]{123 456 7890}
\email{someone@xyz.com}
\photo[64pt][0.5pt]{example-image-a}

\setlength{\separatorcolumnwidth}{0mm} % <==============================

\begin{document}

\makecvtitle

\setlength{\separatorcolumnwidth}{9pt}% <===============================
\section{Education}
\cventry{year--year}{Degree}{Institution--3}{City--4}{\textit{Grade}--5}{Description--6}  % arguments 3 to 6 can be left empty
\cventry{year--year}{Degree}{Institution}{City}{\textit{Grade}}{Description}

\section{Master thesis}
\cvitem{title}{\emph{Title}}
\cvitem{supervisors}{Supervisors}
\cvitem{description}{Short thesis abstract}
\end{document}

and the result:
