I have been a photographer for the Los Angeles Daily News since 1992. During my tenure at the Daily News I have had the opportunity to cover a wide variety of subjects including: The Oscars, Emmy Awards, Grammys, NBA, NFL, MBL, breaking news, and portraits.

“That was a great class! Sorry it took me so long to get the photos uploaded.
It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot, so thanks for a great class.”
– Alina Kelly
“Hans, I will sign up for another class at a different location. It was a great class!”
“Thanks for the class today. I took a lot of photos!”
– David Langston
“First off thank you so much for your time to teach. Teaching especially in the arts is a career that I feel most people under value, but you are amazing at what you do and people should recognize all the work that you do.”
– Ashley Staudenmeir
“I had a wonderful time at the Hollywood Blvd class in Los Angeles. My class was Sunday 3-6 pm with Hans Gutknecht. Hans is very personable and engaging. He makes everything fun while imparting lots of information. It was a real photo expedition with a real photojournalist. My camera and composition skills increase more than I expected in a 3 hour class. I learn to shoot in aperture priority, use exposure compensation, how to be patient and look for the light, etc. I have lots to digest and practice. Thanks DPA. You are a first class organization.”
– Tony Mataras
“I was in Hans’ class on Sunday at 3p at Hollywood & Highland. I had a blast! I learned so much and feel like I have a much better grasp at the functionality on my Canon T3i Rebel. I’m no longer afraid of the “manual” setting!
Hans did a great job and I look forward to taking more classes at the Digital Academy and reaching out to Hans with any questions that I have as I use my Canon down the road.
Thanks so much!”

“We had a fantastic experience and a fantastic time with our instructor Hans Gutknecht”
– Andy Waldbaum
“I had such a wonderful time listening and learning from the “pros”.I learned a lot. While on vacation last month I really thought about what I learned and applied it while shooting. Personally I think my photos are much better than what they used to be.”
