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.

12 June 2020 • Photography Course-Night Photography (Melbourne)

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.
