"Attending their workshop gave me the kick in the ass I needed and a fresh and unique perspective on a very traditional photography genre."

– Juliana Socher

"I’ve been a big fan of Dom and Liam’s work since I first started in the industry. Learning their ethos and their thought process behind some of their most iconic images was fascinating. They were completely open and honest with us, not holding anything back."

– Matt Badenoch

"I could not wait to literally dive head first into the sea of knowledge that these guys would pour out. And pour out it did. Dom and Liam were so open, so honest and so bloody frank that you could not come away from the day without feeling inspired, mesmerised, and honestly - a bit shaken up."

– Claire Batey

“If I had to sum up the masterclass in one sentence, I would say “It was the smack in face I needed… An amazing day spent with the very friendly Dom & Liam, exploring their unique style/approach and it’s application to weddings. To sum up the day: practical, thought provoking, down to earth & inspirational.”

– Sara Kirkham

TRAINING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS & VIDEOGRAPHERS

“We never wanted to be great wedding photographers… we wanted to be great photographers.

Wedding photography is an industry often dominated by cliché. By alternative takes on a shot you’ve photographed 1000 times before, by the weight of assumed expectations over the freedom of artistic expression. There’s a continuous pressure to perform, to match the best images in your portfolio at every single wedding, even if the conditions and setting are completely different.

But how do you get the best out of the weddings you shoot week in, week out and create bold, impactful, original imagery no matter what the setting, no matter what the style of wedding, no matter what activities the bride and groom have planned for the day?

Through a simple realisation:

It’s not the wedding that needs to give you more, it’s up to you to leave preconceptions at the door and open your eyes to what’s already there.

WORKSHOPS

The York Place Photography Workshop is an exploration of the art of reportage wedding photography. We aim to help our attendees to understand how to find interesting documentary imagery with consistency throughout every part of a wedding day, not just the big moments, through an examination of theme, composition, layering and light.

Through the course of the workshop we’ll explore our street photography influences, our approach on a wedding day and our people and personality based ethos to photography in general. Whether a reportage specialist or just looking to up your documentary game our aim is to help you to find your unique voice in a crowded market.

“This might sound odd, but I have gained the most from the workshop during the few days afterwards. It wasn’t until I stepped back, digested the information, and thought about the key messages for my work, that I understood the difference between good, bad, and amazing photographs. I took a lot away with me, and it all starts with the ability to critique a photograph. Having the ability to see my mistakes, is the catalyst to improve and grow as a photographer. If you’re wanting to improve your documentary wedding photography, this masterclass is the kick up the ass you need!”

– Steve Chaplin
