About Us

We’re Chad and Daphne, photographers behind Lathala Creative Studios.


In 2019, we started our business with the intent to exclusively shoot product photos. But when a client asked us to create an animated video for a campaign, our experience led us to discover the endless artistic possibilities of stop motion.


Our journey to become GIF artists wasn't easy. As content creators, we had to discover techniques on our own to achieve the results we wanted.

While there were plenty of tutorials on traditional stop motion processes, there was virtually no educational content about animating products for social media.


By teaching ourselves stop motion, our simple loops slowly evolved into more intricate animations.

With our experience, we want to help you create high-quality animations for brands. We’ll teach you the basic skills you’ll need to start, as well as more advanced techniques to elevate your stop motion game.
