Sydney
Australia

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).

SHOP ONLINE CLASSES

For those unable to attend our Sydney events in person, we offer our masterclasses online. Most online classes will be held over 4-6 weeks, with videos, practical exercises, weekly homework, individual feedback, direct email contact, forums, and printable handouts. Complimentary design templates are also included with the InDesign classes. Each online class is strictly limited in number so that we can personally attend to each student. Find out more about how our online classes work.

SHOP MASTERCLASSES

Our signature workshop is an intensive workshop that covers the technical and emotional aspects of documentary photography right through to editing and workflow, photo book design and layout, journalling, and memory keeping systems. As part of the day, we cover the fundamentals of using Adobe Lightroom for image work and Adobe InDesign for design layouts. In contrast, our masterclasses allow us to delve deeper into each of the topics. The masterclasses are smaller and more intimate, and there is less time pressure involved. This means that there is plenty of opportunity for Q&A, and we hope to allocate valuable one-on-one time with every single student. Each masterclass is taught by either Ronnie or Trish.
