Having many subscribers isn’t always synonymous with quality content. Sure, the cream tends to rise to the top, but they’re plenty of relatively unknown channels putting out great photography content. We have a soft spot for those on their grind, putting out videos, and trying to grow their channel; everyone has to start somewhere. And large photography sites like ours can help hardworking creators get a leg up. That’s why we want to help (both the creator and the consumer) by highlighting five photography YouTube channels you need to know about.
1. Faizal Westcot
Faizal Westcot has had his photography YouTube channel for two months. That’s a very green channel. However, he already has a strong understanding of what kind of content people want to see, especially in the street photography community. From camera reviews to point-of-view street shooting tutorials, there’s a range of interesting videos. Points go to Westcot for his video editing skills. Although new, he’s far from amateur.
2. Photography Course
A channel that has something for everyone, Photography Course covers different techniques suited for the range of genres in the photographic field. As well as showing how to make better photographs in-camera, the channel touches on tips for post-production. For such great content, it’s surprising the channel has 500 subscribers at the time of writing this. If you like the videos, help the creators get their subscriber number up!
3. Ben Maclean
Clearly inspired by super popular Peter McKinnon, Ben Maclean creates high-quality tutorials that will propel your skillset. There are plenty of cool hacks and tricks that will help improve your final image. What we most like about Maclean is his ability to share his humorous side and make technically boring details seem far more entertaining.
4. Chris Sale
Chris Sale’s channel is for any landscape photographer who likes the hard facts. Showing you the beautiful nature in England, Sale has a very methodical approach to his YouTube channel. He clearly explains composition, exposure, and the other elements that go into a good landscape photograph. His knowledge and clear explanation make his channel ideal for those just starting out. Cool videos that cover researching locations and how to build a website give the channel more depth and make Chris’ channel appealing to a broader audience.
5. Mik Milman
Mik Milman has been a professional event photographer for more than 10 years. That’s a lot of experience and knowledge. Keeping up with the times, Milman decided to share his knowledge with the world – and what better way to do so than through a dedicated photography YouTube channel. Not only will you learn how to shoot events from a technical standpoint, but you’ll also learn how to grow your business and the best gear you need for the job. Milman also does live videos, where you can watch him shoot on the red carpet at events, learning something new along the way.
