Here's What You'll Learn

How the Photo Fix For Teens Stacks Up

YouTube is incredible. However, learning a topic as broad as photography via YouTube comes with three main problems:

  1. Overwhelm: There’s so much information, some good, some bad, but all utterly disconnected and unordered. 
  2. Information gaps: You’ll almost certainly miss numerous key concepts because you didn’t even know to search for them.
  3. Support: simply put, there is none via YouTube. However, the Photo Fix For Teens has a paid staff (of working pro photographers with education backgrounds) to support you through the entire course. We also have a full blown social app for community based support. You can share updates, post pictures and videos, like, follow, add comments, message members privately, and much more.  Best part, our social app is 100% private and secure. We don’t sell ANY of your data!

Ditch the overwhelm and the info gaps. Photo Fix For Teens makes learning photography crystal clear, leading you step-by-step to creating pro-quality pics you’ll cherish forever!

Udemy has a lot of photography courses, but there’s a few things that set the Photo Fix For Teens apart:

  1. Better Course Content: After reviewing dozens of Udemy photography courses (and others), we guarantee the Photo Fix For Teens will better prepare you for real world photography than the competition, or your money back! From shoot to gear to edit, you’ll master more of the photography secrets that matter from working pros!
  2. Better Community: Udemy has a comment section.  The Photo Fix For Teens has its own full blown social app! Much like Facebook, you can share updates, post pictures and videos, like, follow, add comments, message members privately, and much more.  Best part, our social app is 100% private and secure. We don’t sell ANY of your data!
  3. Better Support: Not only does the SPS Staff offer daily support in our social app, we also host LIVE Q&A calls via Zoom for each module. From lesson reviews to image reviews to individual answers, we guarantee the Photo Fix For Teens will be worth every penny.

We have to be honest here. We’ve heard from hundreds that most local photography courses are outdated. They spend way too much time covering topics that just aren’t practical. 

Photo Fix For Teens focuses on the 20% of timeless photography essentials that make 80% of the difference, including:

  • Composition
  • Lighting
  • Understanding Exposure (“shooting in manual mode”)
  • Camera Operations
  • Photo Editing

When it comes to practicality, our guiding principle for the Photo Fix For Teens is rather simple: if a lesson won’t prepare someone to become a working photographer, it’s not worth teaching.

Most local courses are also taught by instructors who are NOT working pro photographers. This doesn’t mean these instructors aren’t good. But we’ve found that learning from actual working photographers makes a dramatic impact on what’s actually taught (and thus the effectiveness of the course content).

Here's What You'll Need

  • Any camera (smartphone, DSLR, mirrorless, anything will work)!
  • Internet access. The course works well on mobile device!
  • Optional: Adobe Lightroom (FREE trial available) for the Editing Module.
  • You don't need any prior photography experience.
  • You don't need lighting equipment (we cover natural light only).
  • You don't need any other fancy photography equipment.
  • You don't need to be "creative" nor "good with technology."
  • You don't need a Facebook account, our SPS Social App is 100% private and secure!

FAQs

Here's some frequent a's to your q's. And if you still have a question, email us (info@shultzphotoschool.com)!

Independent Study: When you purchase the Photo Fix For Teens, all course content is available immediately for on-demand viewing. You’re free to complete the course at your own pace and direction. You’ll have access to our member chat area to ask questions, but we won’t have weekly Zoom Q&A’s.

Group Study: Twice per year (once beginning Sep 1 and once beginning Feb 1) we teach the Photo Fix For Teens in more of a “live,” group experience format. We go through each module and lesson together over 8 weeks, with an additional 2 weeks set aside for a final capstone project (1o weeks total).  We post pics and assignments daily in the SPS Member Chat. We host a Live Zoom Q&A / Review at the end of each module. Basically, it’s like taking an online college class with a group of students and live instructors. Only this is way more fun. 😉

It’s also worth noting: you’ll get daily access to our SPS Staff (5 of us currently) during the group study. We’re working pro photographers and all have a background in education!

When you purchase the LIFETIME option, you get BOTH the Independent Study and the Group Study. You’ll get immediate and unlimited access to all course content like the independent study. But you’ll also be able to participate in future group studies along with hundreds of other students and our entire SPS staff!

Yes, the course is 100% online.  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 buy the LIFETIME ACCESS option, then you get Photo Fix access for life, including all future updates to the course. You’ll also be eligible to go through the course with our “live” semester groups free of charge!

If you buy the 3 MONTH INDEPENDENT STUDY option, you’ll get access to the course for 3 months.

If you buy the LIFETIME ACCESS option, then you get Photo Fix access for life, including all future updates to the course. You’ll also be eligible to go through the course with our “live” semester groups free of charge!

If you buy the 3-MONTH INDEPENDENT STUDY option, you’ll get access to the course for 3 months.

It definitely CAN be, especially if you get the LIFETIME ACCESS option. In this case you can always go through the course on-demand at any time.

However, we do have an initial release of the course, where we drip modules and lessons out over 6 weeks. This is a great way to go through the course with others.

The Photo Fix For Teens caters to beginners.  But we’ve had several enthusiasts take the course.  Either way, several grads have gone on to open their own photo biz.  So yes, we cover a lot of good stuff.  See below for lesson overviews.

 

Yes.  If you can turn on your camera, snap some pics in auto, then get those pics onto your computer, you’re golden.  You’ll be a photo guru by the time you’re done.  See above for lesson overviews.

Nope.  Most SPS content transcends specific cameras and focuses on photography fundamentals that our snapshot culture has largely forgotten.  Your pics will transform whether you shoot with a smartphone or a $3,000 camera.  

Nope.  But we’ll show you how to edit in Adobe Lightroom. You’ll be able to follow along with a free trial.

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

We’ll have LIVE Q&A sessions throughout the course release. We also have a community feature where you can post questions, share pictures, be inspired, and meet new friends!

 

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