Quality editing will transform your pics.

● Discover pro editing secrets  ● Develop your signature style  ● Create priceless pics


What's the difference...

Between YOUR pics and a PRO’s? 

After teaching 130,000 people about photography, the answer might surprise you, but it’s undeniable.

Learn the answer in the video below and why the Lightroom Fix will make all your pics (way) better.

How do I know if I need the Lightroom Fix?

If you’ve said at least two or more of the following, you need the Lightroom Fix.

  • "I wish my photos had more pop."
  • "Editing photos takes way too long."
  • "Getting all my pics organized into ONE place would be amazing...but sounds exhausting."
  • "I need a much faster system for sorting, editing, backing up, and sharing my pics."
  • "Dang, can we edit that out of the pic?"
  • "Sometimes I just don't know where to start with a pic when it comes to editing."
  • "I wish I had my own unique photography style."
  • "If my house burnt down I'd lose all my pics."
  • "I'm not very technically inclined."

The Lightroom Fix solves all of this.
And for the price of a lunch date ($19.99)

The Lightroom Fix has 3 steps. Over 2,000 happy members prove they work.

Step 1: Watch the Lightroom Fix

Online & Self Paced

Show up in your pj's. And since all lessons are self-paced and access is unlimited, you also get to show up whenever you want.

Video Based

Every lesson is video based via a screen-share. Watch and learn, or better yet, edit alongside us with the same image (course images are downloadable).

Step by Step

It's important to cover the big picture of editing and workflow. But we'll also walk you step-by-step through each slider of Lightroom. Just press play.

Newbies Welcome

We start at the very beginning. No need to be intimated by software OR the editing "process." Already experienced? You'll still find plenty here!

Gracious Community

The Members Only Facebook Group is widely known as the most kind, gracious, and helpful photography community on the web.

Well…a lot!  And more is added every single week!  There’s really 4 main courses/programs that are most helpful to expound upon:

  1. The Lightroom Fix Course: which is what this page is all about.
  2. The Photo Fix: the course proven by over 10,000 parents to learn how to take priceless, pro quality pics of your kids.
  3. The Sports Photo Course For Parents: the web’s best course (hands down!) for learning how to capture pro-quality pics of your kids playing sports.
  4. The SPS GRADS Program: Our ongoing photography education program and AMAZING community! You’ll get access to dozens of courses, a new course every month, and the most gracious photography community on the web! 

Each of these resources deserves its own introduction.  But the GRADS Program is one that makes the “subscription” model valuable to you as a member, because it includes amazing ongoing content and community access.  Click here for more info about our GRADS program.

No, Adobe Lightroom does NOT come with the Lightroom Fix.  SPS doesn’t make Adobe Lightroom and thus we don’t get to sell it.  🙂

So while you don’t have top purchase Lightroom separately to join the Lightroom Fix, it’ll sure help! 😉 If you haven’t purchased Lightroom, our first module goes over the options.  

Well, pretty much both.  95% of the course covers what is now “Lightroom Classic,” which Adobe is calling its “desktop focused editing.”  “Lightroom CC” effectively became Lightroom’s name for its mobile apps, which we already cover in a module.  In 2019 Adobe dropped the “CC” from its naming schematic.  Jeepers! 🤣

Adobe is not abandoning Lightroom Classic.  They’re just realizing a lot of editing will be done on mobile in the future (and thus require the cloud).

Bottom line is this: when you understand Lightroom Classic, you understand the Lightroom mobile suite as well.  Thus, we focus on Lightroom Classic but we ultimately cover both!

Yes indeed.  Most lessons are video based.  Each lesson also includes a written portion with plenty of illustrations.  No matter what your learning style, we’ll connect.

If you choose the Lightroom Fix only option, you get LIFETIME ACCESS to the course.  

If you choose the SPS ALL ACCESS subscription, you get access to the Lightroom Fix and every other course (plus a new course every month) for as long as you’re a member.

If there comes a time when you want to cancel your SPS ALL ACCESS membership, we do provide a way for you to purchase lifetime access to only your favorite course(s) at a substantial savings (50-90%).

You betcha.  Do it all at your own pace!  If you’d rather conquer the course with a group, we offer a group challenge twice per year!


Yes. Even if you haven’t bought Lightroom, we’ll walk you through getting it and starting from square one.

Even seasoned photographers pick up some new tricks in the Lightroom Fix that make it worth every penny!


Absolutely, of course. Shultz Photo School is built on a fully encrypted platform complete with SSL certificates.

We have an extremely active members only Facebook Group and a comment section on each lesson.  The community has evolved into one of our greatest program assets.  Questions usually have an answer within an hour!


Of course.  If you don’t think the course delivers, we’ll give you a 100% refund in the first 30 days.

Absolutely Zero Risk to You.

If you join the Lightroom Fix and don’t think it delivers in any way, we’ll give you a 100% refund in the first 30 days.
