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. You’ll also get access to the SPS Community for members only. You can post questions, get feedback, and be inspired!  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 includes strict member-only access to the SPS Community. You can post questions, get feedback, and be inspired!  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 We’ve heard from hundreds that most local photography courses are outdated.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 Community App is 100% private and secure!

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

Not necessarily. When you enroll, you’ll get immediate access to all course content. Perfect for those who prefer to go at their own pace, who need to work ahead, etc.

But our Group Study is AWESOME! 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. Plus we tack on an additional 2 weeks for bonsues (12 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’ll also get to participate in future group studies! Perfect if you feel behind the first time. Also perfect for those who completed it but know they’ll keep improving if they participate again!

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.

If you buy the SEMESTER ACCESS option, you’ll get access to the course through 11/30/2020.

The 3-pack includes LIFETIME access for 3 families. Perfect for going through the course with a couple friends! When you buy this option, you’ll get an email with instructions on how to sign up the other 2 friends (families).

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, our next semester group experience begins 9/1/2020 and concludes 11/30/2020. This is where you go through the course alongside other students AND the SPS Team! We’ll answer questions everyday in our Member Chat area and have Zoom Q&A meetings once per module. We conclude with a capstone project to show off your new skills to the world!

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 this video for a curriculum overview.

 

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 this video for a curriculum overview.

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.
