What we're about

We have three discount options to fit almost any budget:

Currently, during COVID-19 our in-person classes are only given in a 1 on 1 setting. The only time we have more than one student is when the students are from the same family. So all of our current scheduled classes have no openings. If you wish to book a class or block of classes you only need to contact us at the studio to set it up, we would be happy to add you to the schedule.

As far as cost, single classes are $125 each, but we currently have a promotion going at Groupon where you would only pay $75 to Groupon and you could then use your Groupon to book your class. You can locate the Groupon here, (https://schertzphoto.com/classes) https://www.groupon.com/deals/schertz-photography-1

If you’re a veteran or first responder we provide a 50% discount and your class would only cost $62.50. This discount is only good for classes booked one at a time, and can not be applied to the basic photography package. (https://schertzphoto.com/classes)

If you book our basic photography package which is four classes, one class a week for four weeks. The basic photography package consists of our Photo 100, 101, 102, and 103. The cost of the basic photography package is $140 which breaks down to $35 a class. (https://schertzphoto.com/classes)
