The podcast is back with a special episode today as I chat to the wonderful duo that is York Place Studios, all about their brand new book, ‘Is This Something?’ I was incredibly honoured to have been asked to write the foreword for the book, and it also meant I was able to read an advance copy – and I can honestly say they have written *the* defining book about documentary wedding photography, honestly, it’s just brilliant.
We deep-dive into the book on the podcast today, but honestly, you don’t even need to listen because even if you have the slightest regard for documentary photography, then it’s a total must-read. Pre-orders are open right now, with the first books available on a limited first-edition print run in July. Head to seeminglyinsignificant.com to place your order.
