Kevin Ahronson

Director & Founder of Hampshire School of Photography

Kevin Ahronson bought his first 35mm film camera back in 1969. He joined the school photography club and went straight into the darkroom, learning to mix chemicals, develop and print his own photographs.

Throughout the 1970s, 80 and 90s Kevin passionately pursued his love for the creative image, shooting both still images and the occasional film, joining the BBC in 1973 as a film assistant.

Since 2006 Kevin has been shooting in digital, replacing long hours in the darkroom with long hours spent fine-tuning his editing skills in Photoshop. For him, the creativity doesn’t end at the camera.

Since then he has shot most things from weddings to corporate boardrooms, both in the UK and overseas. He's shot overseas for travel companies and run photography workshops on the Greek islands of Crete and and Samos. In recent years he’s even worked on a small number of movies, one of which took him to Hollywood, nominated as Best Director of Photography.

With over five decades behind the lens, Kevin now focuses his attention to passing on his vast knowledge and experience to others through the Hampshire School of Photography, which he founded in 2016.
