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.

I found the studio lighting workshop very informative and Alwyn made it very easy to follow and I feel I have a greater understanding of the different processes of studio lighting and also a greater understanding of the functions of my camera With smaller group size there is plenty of time to get the assistance you need and questions answered Highly recommend workshops with Alwyn
