Who am I

My name is Alwyn Hanson, I have been teaching photography for over 30 years in Melbourne. I have worked with and taught over 30,000 people including new users as well as training groups such as Victoria Police,  MFB and many Government Departments. 

I believe in teaching photography in a simple, logical way rather than boring lectures. My classes are short, practical and complete. Most are three hours long (My experience is longer classes don't always achieve good results)

I teach photography and software based on classes that have run with great success in my previous position as manager of Michaels Media School in the Melbourne CBD. 

I am passionate about teaching and want you to use YOUR camera to take great photos.

I can teach you in a class or if you prefer at your home, cafe or local park. 

You tell me what you want and I can make it happen.

Why Alwyns Photo School is different.

We believe in working WITH all the special features on the camera,NOT turning them all off and going manual. The camera companies have spent millions in development, so why reinvent the wheel. We can teach YOU how to take great photos on YOUR own digital camera.

Alwyns Photo School, making great photography easier.

15 March 2020 • Photography Course 1-Introducing your Camera (ET)

Alwyn was so knowledgeable and taught in a way that was easy to understand. Learnt so much in the 3 hour session, can’t wait to follow on with the next class


01 March 2020 • Photography Course-Wildlife at Melbourne Zoo

What a perfect day. The weather was fantastic and the class conducted by Alwyn was informative, told in lamans terms and the small group lesson was invaluable. All questions answered in such a way that we could all understand. All cameras were attended to personally by Alwyn and no questions left unanswered. I will be booking further classes with Alwyn as there is so much to learn.
