LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

Masterclass recap: Visual Storytelling

Masterclass recap: Visual storytelling - A blog post by Trish Chong for LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)

| Written by Trish |

We’ve had their names flagged in our inboxes for months, expressions of interest in our first Visual Storytelling masterclass and we were so excited to finally meet and put faces to names.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day or a more delightful venue either. Summery yet overcast, and held in The Society Inc’s gorgeous Paddington terrace, we were all spoilt for choice on eclectic frames to photograph, and cozy nooks to take a seat. An exercise on observing light had us marvelling at how sunshine streamed through the windows and bounced off the beautiful textured surfaces, lending warm light one way, or a soft glow to another.  

As we began to get to know each other and our cameras a little better, our favourite moments were when lightbulbs clicked after the initial frustration of switching over to full manual mode and the excitement that soon followed once a little bit of practice cemented the topics that had been discussed. We bonded over the joys and challenges of having young people in our lives, and the chatted about the little disciplines and projects we would love to thread into our daily lives with the new storytelling skills that had been learned.

While most had chosen to pursue this course as a way to improve their own photography and documentary skills, we also had a little chuckle about the sweet husband who had gifted his wife this course for Christmas, only to then find out he was hoping to feature in a few more photos himself!

But isn’t that one of the best things about photography, it’s the gift that truly keeps on giving.

If you're interested in joining us for an inspiring day of learning, have a read about our next signature workshop on Saturday 30 May. You can see all the photos from our past workshops here, and you can email us at anytime if you have any questions.
