Photography courses to help parents, photography enthusiasts, and pros
Create Priceless Pics
"Who me? Snapping pics like a boss?"
“SOUNDS great! But there are some problems…”
Many assume they’ll need to invest in an expensive camera to get take pro-quality pics of their kids, let alone get paid for a gig.
The Truth: cameras are the least important part. YOU are the most important part! Of course, nice cameras are AWESOME! Just remember that they’re a tool. You’re the creator.
Whatever your camera, we’ll explain how to make the most of it in everyday language that a 4th grader can understand.
“I’d LOVE to learn photography, but it’s SO time consuming!”
We totally get it! It’s just tough to add ANYthing to our plates these days!
That’s why we try to make our courses as short and sweet as possible. Most are 5-10 lessons and we try to keep each lesson around the 10 minute mark. We do have just a few huge foundation courses, but even those can be broken into completely manageable pieces.
The other thing that can help is if it’s FUN. Now I know for sure that I’m not that cool (Kyle speaking here), but I can tell ya this for sure. The rest of the SPS team and the SPS Members (currently about 1300 strong) are an absolute a BLAST!
And, no joking, they’re some of the most caring people on earth. We’re CRAZY blessed to have somehow attracted such amazing members. It’s TRULY HUMBLING!
Another confession (Kyle speaking again): I spent 5 years shooting 40 weddings and 300 portrait sessions per year, and I never once considered myself artistically gifted. I just discovered that photography has certain rules that I could follow to get great results.
Basically it felt like I was cheating. But all legal. Hahaha…
Honestly, here’s something we’ve found to be true: If you appreciate art, creativity, and in general – pretty things – but don’t feel like you’re creative, photography might just be a perfect fit for you. With photography, you get to create, but you don’t have to start with a completely blank canvas.
Said another way, photography can be as much about learning to pay attention as it is about learning to create. Especially if you go towards a more photojournalistic style.
There’s a lot of places to learn photography. A lot of GREAT places, no doubt! Clickin’ Moms and Creative Live are two places have some really great resources!
We love them all! But we also found that sometimes we belonged to sites with 100’s of courses, but we never made it through a single course (in a year). Dang. NOT the site’s fault! But we found this was a widespread “thing.”
So one thing we do at SPS is a monthly theme. Each month we introduce a photography topic (we call it our monthly theme) and we learn about it together the entire month. Each week there’s a brand new tutorial of sorts. And perhaps most importantly, each week we focus on actually putting the theme into practice (by taking pics).
We’ve found that this format of learning together in more of a “LIVE” format can really help build progress. And progress definitely helps kick that “info overload” feeling in the rear!

Maybe we can remove some risk?
If you join the YEARLY Membership and don’t think it delivers in any way, we’ll give you a 100% refund in the first 30 days. Monthly members can cancel any time (and thus don’t qualify for the refund).
