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).

Visual Storytelling - An online class by LIFE:CAPTURED Inc (The modern school of memory keeping)


This online class has been created for those wanting to gain a solid grasp of manual mode on their SLR camera. We will aim to teach you to the technical elements of understanding light and composition in creating meaningful images, as well as exploring the emotional connection between you and your subject. We believe there is much beauty to be captured even in the daily routine of life and hope this online class leaves you equipped to tell your story through the lens.



  • The principles of exposure
  • Understanding light in and out of the camera


  • Practical exercises to explore aperture, shutter speed, and ISO


  • Understanding focus
  • Exploring composition


  • Shooting better portraits
  • Shooting to tell a story


  • An overview of Adobe Lightroom
  • Basic editing tips and techniques



The online class is taught by Trish and Joel, and runs for five weeks. The investment for this online class is $225.00 AUD, and includes a printable workbook. The five-week class will include videos, practical exercises, weekly homework, individual feedback, direct email contact with the teachers, and access to a student forum. We are strictly limiting the number of students we accept for each class so that we can attend to everyone personally.

This class will not be running in Session 2. If you wish to register your interest, please email Trish.


No prior knowledge of your camera’s manual functions is required. However, you will need Adobe Lightroom installed on your laptop. You can download a trial copy of the software here, or you can read our Software page for more information about subscribing to the Adobe Creative Cloud.
