I’m a bit nervous as I write this post, but also excited as I share with you something my dear friend Ronnie and I have been working on over the past few months. We sat down together early on in the year when goals were fresh and hands were willing and realised we both shared a very similar vision. Over the years that I have been in photography, many have asked when I would be offering a workshop, but I honestly never believed I could offer then what was already out there in abundance. In the last year however, I have felt the pull to return to what really matters, and to live this way in my own life and through my work. It is from this desire that this idea blossomed and we are proud to bring to you LIFE:CAPTURED, a super-charged photography and memory-keeping workshop.
Since you have stopped by my blog, I’m assuming you know a bit about me, the love of my life, and my two little loves. They are the reason I am a lot of who I am and I have found such a joy in documenting our lives and creating these memories, and want to equip other like-minded souls to do the same. If you haven’t yet met Ronnie (photographed earlier in the year here), you really need to pop on over to her amazing blog Pink Ronnie and check her out. She is gifted beyond measure in this world of memory keeping and design, documenting life on a daily basis, and takes some killer iPhone photos as an added bonus. Oh, and did I mention she currently also has four little munchkins under the age of four on her hands?!! Oooh whee.
For more details on our workshop, please read on below or drop us a line via email@example.com for more information. Please be aware that this workshop is aimed at amateur photographers and will have a strong family focus. I will not be delving into the business aspects of photography, nor will I be discussing the ins and outs of wedding photography at this particular time. You will however have a most awesome time with like-minded individuals learning how to make the most of the tools you already have, and being equipped to create beautiful keepsakes that grow more valuable with time.
WHAT IS IT?
LIFE:CAPTURED is an intensive memory keeping and photography workshop dreamed up by Ronnie (from Pink Ronnie blog) and I. Together, we believe in photography that’s real and honest, and memory keeping that’s simple, beautiful, and tangible. Through this workshop, we hope to equip others with the both the skills and resources to document their lives in this way. We aim to teach both the technical and emotional aspects of documentary photography (SLR cameras recommended and iphones encouraged), right through to editing and workflow, journalling and book design, memory keeping systems, Project Life albums, and general organisation of photos and memorabilia. We want this workshop to be very hands on and will cover the fundamentals of using Adobe Photoshop for image editing and Adobe InDesign for design layouts, as well as include a live photo shoot, a design project, and time for Q&A.
WHEN & WHERE WILL IT BE?
We are stoked to announce that our first workshop will be held at the new RAWspace in Waterloo, Sydney on Friday, August 23, 2013 from 9am-6pm. Doesn’t the space look incredible?
