We meet at the Melbourne Zoo and explore the various animals and their habitat.

As we tour the Zoo we aim to take amazing images of Animals from Snakes to Elephants. But not just snapshots, by careful use of your camera controls and lens choice you can achieve great results.

We can teach you how to do that!

What do your need?-Your Camera (Obviously!), batteries and cards for lots of great photos.Medium and big Zooms are perfect for this class.

What level of skill do I need?-We cater for all skill levels from novices to master photographers. The class is suitable for all ages from 9 to 99.

How many people in the class?- Unlike many Melbourne camera schools we prefer small groups, so a we take a small group of six and two teachers.

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.

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.
