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).

Photo Organisation with Lightroom - An online class by LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)


This online class is perfect for anybody who feels overwhelmed by all the photos and other media files that they have. Together, you will learn how to consolidate, re-name, organise, manage, and keyword every one of your photos files - from the past, present and the future. You will learn a system that will accommodate your ever-expanding catalogue of photos. "No file left behind" will become your mantra. You will finish this online class feeling confident in your own ability to keep your photo library well-organised going forward. You will also experience first hand the potential your new keywords have to transform the way you approach your memory keeping projects. 

If you prefer to work at your own pace, you may want to consider our Unravel Your Photos workshop-in-a-box package, which gives you six months unlimited access to all the content from this online class.
