One of my favorite ways to get advice on various aspects of photography is to turn to YouTube. Now unfortunately there are some less than stellar channels but there are also some amazing channels out there, and some of these amazing channels I watch time and again.
I thought I would share some of my top 5 favorite photographers and their channels, in no particular order, with you and hopefully some of them will inspire you as well.
This mad Canadian has such energy in his videos that they leave me smiling. His videos cover a few topics from advice on how to improve your photography or cinematic footage, camera equipment advice, how he makes his cinematic footage as well as few other topics. He started his channel back in 2010 and has had over 295 million views.
In my opinon this is one of the best channels if you have an interest in landscape photography. Here you see videos of Nigel out in the amazing british countryside and talks you through how to improve your photography. This is not only done by showing how to get it right but also how he has got it wrong, which in my opion makes him and his videos very relatable. He started his channel back in 2017 and has had over 8 million views.
This american photographer has very relatable videos, they mainly cover advice on how to improve your photography and photography equipment. What makes his videos so relatable is the fact that his family are involved in them, with his wife often modelling for him. He started his channel back in 2017 and has had over24 million views.
Another fantastic British YouTuber and another landscape photographer with tutorials but in my opinon it is best to follow a few people in the same niche as what you don't learn from one you may learn from another. I do love how he shows himself getting dreched quite alot. He started his channel back in 2014 and has had over 6 million views.
This is wonderful channel full of tutorials not just on how to use your equipment but also on photo editing as well as advice on specific pieces of equipment. They also do online courses and they sell photography books, now I will say I have only watched their channel I have not done any of their courses or bought any of their books but may do in the future. This channel was started in 2014 and has had over 5 million views.
Now it goes without saying that there are plenty of great YouTube channels out there, these just my personal favorite ones. If you have a favorite channel I'd love to hear about it.
