    Artwork! What do I do with my kids artwork? What is the best way to create a digital copy of my artwork? How can I organise my artwork? Join Fiona Staff and Chantal Imbach as they explore the topic of Artwork.

    In this episode we talk about some of the common questions we hear from clients when it comes to the artwork they have at home. We open up the topic of artwork in a broader sense, as it relates to 3D pieces, doodles and artwork produced by teens and adults.

    049 | How to Stop Procrastinating about your Photos

    049 | How to Stop Procrastinating about your Photos

    Are you procrastinating about doing something with your photos? Have you EVER procrastinated about doing something with your photos? Join Fiona Staff and Chantal Imbach as they help guide you through the steps to stop procrastinating about your photos.

    In this episode we talk about the results from the recent survey we conducted revealing what people procrastinate about regarding their photos, and why.

    We found that people procrastinate mostly because they are:

    •Overwhelmed and don't know where to start
    •Overwhelmed with the enormous task ahead
    •Overwhelmed because they don't have enough knowledge to make confident decisions

    Some of the other reasons include:

    •Abstract goals
    •Rewards that are far in the future
    •A disconnect from our future self
    •Feeling overwhelmed
    •Anxiety
    •Task aversion
    •Perfectionism
    •Fear of failure
    •Indecisiveness

    We want to see you succeed in your projects and we believe understanding why you are procrastinating, and following clear steps to move through it, are key for your success.

    We have produced the free eGuide to teach you How to Stop Procrastinating about your Photos. You can download your free copy here:

    048 | Reflections on Photo Loss through a Natural Disaster (with guest Karen Ostenried)

    048 | Reflections on Photo Loss through a Natural Disaster (with guest Karen Ostenried)

    Do you have an Action Plan in place to protect your precious photos in the event of a natural disaster? Have you, or a loved one, ever experienced a natural disaster first hand? Join Fiona Staff and Chantal Imbach as they chat with author, speaker and media communicator Karen Ostenried about her experiences and reflections through a natural disaster.

    In this Episode we are grateful to chat with Karen Ostenried, a survivor of the 2009 Australian Black Saturday bushfires. The Black Saturday bushfires were a series of bushfires that burned across the Australian state of Victoria on and around Saturday 7 February 2009. They were among Australia's all-time worst bushfire disasters with 173 people losing their life and 2,029 houses destroyed.

    Karen talks openly about the devastation of losing her home, her beloved horses and all of her precious photos. Karen recently appeared on The Project (an Australian news-current affairs television program) and shared her advice and lessons learned on her journey to recovery.

    In this episode Karen readily shares what she does differently today, when it comes to backing up and managing her photos, since the bushfires. Listen in as Karen gives us some extremely practical advice relating to capturing photos of your treasured hobbies and passions in life.

Motivated to sort my photos now

Now I have have clarity on how best to keep my photos organised. Great to listen to while working on my photos. Well spoken and down to earth. Thank you!

Amazing for DIYer’s + New Professional Photo Organisers.

Fiona and Chantal are amazing at breaking down what is a very detailed process into easy to manage bites. Their podcast is clearly spoken and well structured. They bounce off each other in a way that makes listening fun. Having both of them speaking keeps you awake - not just one voice droning on. Also a great range of topics. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone looking to get their photos organised themselves. Also for new Professional Photo Organisers looking to get the low down on what’s involved in this type of field.

Helpful and informative

I’m loving this podcast and it’s the perfect timing when I discovered it. The tips have been very helpful to assist with sorting out my photos once and for all. I had spent some time years ago sorting out my photo library but with an increased volume of more photos and family I felt like I had photo overwhelm. Moving my photo library from one program to another seemed all too much until I listened to this podcast. Thank you for discussing such an important topic from backing up to actually organising the photos so they can be found easily.
