Sports Photography is always a challenge from the problems of where to stand to get the best views to what to use for an everchanging game.

We think we have answered all your needs with our new course.

With the assistance of the wonderful people at Panton Hill Football Club, we are proud to launch our newest Course.

Over three hours we will cover a live VFL football game from every aspect and angle. Our school venue is almost on the ground, giving us access to many camera angles from the grandstand to the goalposts.

Our team will be on hand to supply help and advice to get great shots and capture the best moments of what will, no doubt, be a thrilling game.

We start in our classroom beside the oval where we run through the best settings and practices for sports photography. Then we walk out to the oval for all the excitement of a VFL game. Unlike a huge stadium AFL match you will be incredibly close to the action you may have to duck occasionally! 

We are not fixed to any one position on the ground so you can move to any camera angle you wish and we will be on hand to help. 

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

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

Medium and large zooms and telephoto lenses are suggested for this class.

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 up to eight students and two teachers. So each student receives maximum attention.

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.

Your Teacher

I have had years of experience working with students from 9 to 99 years.  I have been working in Photography for over 30 years and teaching for over 15 years with over 30,000 students in that time.   

I have written and organised classes for many companies and Government departments including Victoria Police and the Metropolitan Fire Brigade.

My belief is to teach photography classes with "less physics, more photos."
