"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

Photographing yesterday a few things were chiming with me as I worked. RISK - that was a word that pinged in my brain. Also I think I’d got into the mantra of ‘Light - Composition - Moment’ and Liam really broke that with ‘Composition - Moment -Light’, a much more visceral way to work.
So thanks again for an inspiring, enlightening, honest and candid workshop. 

- Andrew Billington

"Learned so much at the wedding photography workshop with Liam & Dom, game-changer."

- Cast & Crewe Photography

“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

"I mentioned if I came away with one element from the day that added to my photography I’d be happy - well how about if I said I feel enlightened (reborn if you want me to get creepy!) You have given me a new pair of eyes to see the industry I’m in. Only time will tell if I have the balls and the work ethic to take advantage of this mindset but thank you so much for giving my business the chance to change."

– Lee Glasgow Photography

"Today’s workshop was completely mind-blowing. Thank you to the one and only York Place Studios."

- Twins Photography

"Quite possibly the most challenging form of photography I’ve ever tried. Today opened my mind to so many possibilities, thank you York Place studios"

- Afiq Omar

It was fascinating to see how focussed they are on their work and how they continually challenge themselves to get better, never resting on their laurels. I found this really inspiring, a great example for the industry.
I loved hearing about their 'rules' and how they apply them to their work, a real insight ... Absolutely loved it!
