"Photography is my oxygen..."
Based in the small town of Fleet, situated on the Hampshire, Berkshire & Surrey border, Kevin Ahronson is a professional photographer with over 40 years experience behind the camera.
He specialises in photographing people, both private clients (individual portraits, families, children and weddings) as well as those in the corporate sector (staff, senior management and board-level headshots, buildings, plant and documenting commercial events).
"I have my mother to thank for my passion in photography" he explains "She bought me my first camera when I was just eleven. Now, over 40 years later, photography is in my bones, it is my oxygen.
I remember buying my first 35mm camera, (second-hand) a couple of years later. I joined the school camera club and spent hours in the school darkroom, learning how to mix chemicals, process the negatives and develop the prints".
Hampshire School of Photography
In 2016 Kevin set up the Hampshire School of Photography, passing on his vast knowledge to others through workshops, courses and private mentoring & tuition.
He believes that the best way to learn photography is from someone who does it for a living.
His teaching is immensely practical, appealing to both complete beginners and those aspiring to become professional photographers themselves.

In my late teens I left my hometown of Brighton to live in London working for the BBC film department and I bought my first single lens reflex (SLR) camera.
My favourite camera during the 70's and 80's was without a doubt the Olympus OM1. It sits on my shelf today as a reminder of worderfully creative times
Digital has transformed my photography in recent years, as it has for most long-serving photographers; and long hours in the darkroom have been replaced with long hours at the computer, fine-tweaking images to get the very best out of each shot.
