Unravel Your Photos
UNRAVEL YOUR PHOTOS
Friends, we’re about to start a worldwide movement.
Our aim? To inspire people to unravel their photos and bring order to their digital archives - a commonly underrated aspect of the storytelling process. After all, an organised photo library is often the missing link between taking photos and turning them into tangible keepsakes.
To kick off the movement, we are partnering with Artifact Uprising and holding a one-of-a-kind photo organisation boot camp for fourteen bloggers and Instagrammers.
The participants of this boot camp will take part in an exclusive version of our Photo Organisation with Lightroom online class and be challenged to take control of their digital photo files over the course of twelve weeks. As part of the boot camp, our fourteen participants will review how they’re going as they complete each of the six lessons, either by sharing a blog post or an Instagram post every couple of weeks. All participants will also receive a workshop kit, which includes an exclusive workbook printed by Artifact Uprising, a set of custom prints designed by Cocorrina, and a Now or Never notebook by Blacklist Studio.
You can follow along with unravelling your own photos by signing up for our upcoming online class, Photo Organisation with Lightroom. The next session commences on Monday 11 January 2016 and runs for six weeks. Registration closes 4 January 2016 or when the class is full. Alternatively, if you prefer to work at your own pace and crave something tangible to hold, we are currently offering a limited run of these workshop-in-a-box packages under the end of December 2015.
OUR 2015 BOOT CAMP PARTICIPANTS
Amy Tangerine has always had a fresh outlook on life. By the time she was 23, she had founded the popular and award-winning handcrafted t-shirt line Amy Tangerine, featured in hundreds of retail outlets around the world, including Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Barneys New York. But it wasn’t until 2007 that Amy discovered her true passion: scrapbooking. What started as a slice-of-life hobby blossomed into a full-time, fulfilling business venture that includes signature collections with American Crafts, her own book, celebrity events, consulting services, and teaching workshops all over the world. When she's not at home in Los Angeles with two mischievous Jack Russell Terriers, her long-time partner, JC, and their adorable son, Jack, she is traveling, finding great places to eat, and doing her best to enjoy every moment.
Bethany and her husband live in a small Texas town where they raise and home-educate their four children. Although life with them is often messy, she finds joy in simple, ordinary moments together--a meal, a walk, a conversation. Bethany soulfully writes and photographs their life on her personal blog, Cloistered Away. Her work has been featured in several lifestyle magazines and family-centered publications.
Camilla is a self-taught cook (the messiest there is!) and an all round food-obsessed little minion. She’s the kind of nutritionist that people snicker at (because yes sometimes she eats cake for breakfast…damn good cake too!) and she ain’t into fads of any kind. Whole, real, fresh food is where it’s at for her (even better if you can grow some of your own!). You will find Camilla over at The Alimental Sage, a website dedicated to the sharing of food, stories and the creation of community. She believes photography and visual memory keeping are key to the sharing of the recipes and stories that underlie our food rituals and culinary keepsakes.'
Hello, my name is Carly. I am a wife, mum, storyteller, photographer and total daydreamer. I am passionate about finding simplicity, documenting the everyday and crafting a little bit along the way. My family and I live in a small town near the Canadian Rocky Mountains, but our dream would be to buy an old farmhouse on acreage one day. I love clean lines, earl grey tea lattes in the morning, making a to do list each day and creating things with pretty paper.

Hello! My name is Gert and I live in Southern California. I’m a happily married mother of three, a voracious reader, an avid moviegoer, an adventurous cook, an amateur photographer, a beginner calligrapher, and aspiring memory keeper.

An aspiring writer, distracted gardener and tea (with cake) enthusiast, Kate lives her "life, simply" in Canberra, Australia. When she is not wielding a camera, a trowel or a wooden spoon, you will most often find her at her beloved writing desk. In 2013, Kate began blogging at Netherleigh where she shares her love for the beauty and comfort found in the simple rituals of the everyday. After six years in London and Northern Ireland working primarily in the charity sector, Kate now spends every spare moment exploring the rolling valleys, wide plains and soaring mountains of her homeland in search of inspiring images and stories to share.
My parents owned a bookshop when I was a child and I spent my formative years growing up there, so it is no surprise that my day job involves working with books and writers. I work part time managing a writers festival in Perth, and the rest of my time being mum to two very sweet young ladies who are 4 1/2 and 2. I studied both literature and visual art at uni and loved both intensely. Fate dictated a path more closely tied to words and writing, but the last few years have seen me get back in touch with my love of the visual in the little spare time that I have. This is helped along by a very healthy instagram addiction! I find the instagram community incredibly nourishing, inspiring and supportive. Over the last year and a bit I’ve been teaching myself how to use my DSLR and I’m falling more and more in love with photography.

Mary Beth Johnson
Mary Beth Johnson is a wife and mum to four schooners, as she's dubbed her children. On a normal afternoon, you would find her in moccasins, skinny jeans and a comfortable tee, camera in hand. Recently moving to the suburbs of Atlanta, Mary Beth spends her days homeschooling, training for her first half marathon, sneaking away to the bookstore, trying to act the part of a southerner, and sifting through recipes in The Vegetarian Times. She dreams of leaving the suburban life and building a small house by the water in the middle of nowhere with cherry pies continuously baking in the oven. Food is her love language.
I grew up in Manchester, England and had only ever lived a city life until I moved to the countryside last summer, in search of a slower life for myself, my fiancee and our daughter Orla. I chronicle our family life on my blog Me and Orla, and the Instagram account of the same name. Photography has always been a hobby, something like a tangible form of daydreaming for me, and I never considered that it could be anything else. Then I discovered Instagram - or perhaps it discovered me - and everything grew. Now I work full time as a blogger, writer and photographer, and have never been happier.
