Flower & Garden Photography Course (Melbourne)

Flower and garden Photography in Melbourne

Next Available: Sun, 02 Jun 9:30AM (AEST)
3 hours


Flower photography is an art not easy to master. The camera does not “see” the flower the way you do. Often colours are muted, and the vibrance of a garden is missing. Join us on a journey through Fitzroy and Treasury gardens in Melbourne City as we show how by using the correct settings, angles and lenses, we can create unforgettable images of flowers, gardens, and waterfalls (yes, Melbourne does have a waterfall!)

The class covers lens use, using colour, taking pictures in Black & White, photographing water features, using reflectors and diffusers, the best camera settings, and more. I will bring Filters, tripods, and advice.  

You need to bring yourself, your camera and lots of blank cards.  

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

Your Camera (Obviously!), batteries, and cards for lots of great photos. Wide angle and medium zooms are perfect for this class (and lighter to carry!) 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.
