I was daunted at the prospect of digital photography. I'm a business owner in my later 30s and I've creative directed numerous shoots before. I bought the gear, with the intention to build capacity to shoot internally. While not comprehensive, this course is enough to get you started taking photos, playing with some basic technical and compositional elements and, probably most importantly, feeling like you can do it yourself. He knew about every digital camera regardless of the make or age of the camera. You don't need to read a hideous manual and wonder what's important, Alwyn will tell you. The venue and locale is beautiful by the way. You could go up there just to spend some time.

“Focus on the face” I learnt a lot about taking photos of animals and if you love Birds then this course is for you.

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.
