Captured Experience originates and currently serves the beautiful Okanagan Valley in BC, Canada. Established in 2021, Captured Experience’s mission is to ensure that everyone is present in life, instead of focusing their time on taking photos on their phone.
Pala Kovacs is an Indigenous Photographer and Entrepreneur from the Lil’Wat Nation, near Pemberton, BC. She grew up on a small Native Reserve and has witnessed firsthand the effects of intergenerational trauma that was caused by colonization and residential schools in North America.
She has made it her mission to lead the way for more Indigenous people to become entrepreneurs. Pala plans on taking all she has learned in starting businesses back to her home community someday, to coach businesses and boost economic development in indigenous communities, so they can invest in their people’s health – spiritually, mentally, and physically.
You can find her work and more of her story here.
