Melbourne City Night Photography Course-(Melbourne CBD )

Night Photography Course (Melbourne CBD)

Night Photography and Light Painting Workshop

Next Available: Thu, 18 Jul 6:30PM (AEST)
(+1 more date)
3 hours


A three-hour Night Photography course through Melbourne City at night, learning how your camera can take amazing images using long speeds and special effects. This class is held on several Weekday Nights over Winter.

We'll meet in Bourke St and finish at Melbourne's beautiful Princes Bridge three hours later.

What do I bring, and What level of skill do I need?

Your Camera (Obviously!) and batteries and cards for lots of great photos

A tripod is needed, but if you don't have one, we can supply one for you to use.

We cater to all skill levels, from novices to master photographers and ages 9 to 99. Just bring your camera and your enthusiasm.

How many people are in the class, and how many teachers?

Unlike many Melbourne  Camera Schools, we prefer small groups. So we take a small group of six students and two teachers. So each student receives maximum attention.   

Rain Policy

If rain is forecast, we will advise 48 hours before the class and offer alternative dates or a refund of the class cost.

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.

Had my camera for years but never managed to get many good "night time" photos. I was so happy with the photos I took last night and can't wait to get out and practice those techniques. Alwyn makes it all so easy to understand and his class notes and videos are a wonderful reference source.

Hi John, Thanks for the great feedback, the night walk is one of my favourite classes to run and last night was a good example of why.

We had a great night at Alwyn’s Night Photography course. Alwyn and Michael were attentive and informative and catered for every skill level. We were at the beginner end of the scale and learnt a lot. But an experienced photographer would also love this course and the great locations we were taken to around Melbourne. We came h9me with some amazing photos and a desire to learn more.
