What are your favourite YouTube photography channels?

Here's something we can share that might help us all improve our photography - what photography YouTubers do you watch most?

My favourite is rapidly becoming the Danish landscaper Mads Peter Iversen - vlogs in near perfect English, of course.

The reason I like him is that he has a very engaging personality, but his videos are very instructive and always about the place he's visiting with loads of helpful tips about finding it and parking etc - and about photography, and he's a good photographer - and not all about himself, which is a trap too any fall into.

Mads Peter Iversen - YouTube

Who is your favourite?

I don't follow anybody in particular but I like Gavin Hoey. I know him through Adorama.

I watch Thomas Heaton twice a week, every week. Always good.

Me too, more photo, less tech, with the right amount of reality tv.

I'm going to lose any remaining shred of credibility I may have by saying this...

Despite all his biased opinions, some inaccurate information here and there, and other flaws - I quite like Tony Northrup. Not for the photo review sessions - I don't bother with those, but the equipment reviews and market opinions are entertaining if you don't take them too seriously - and especially if you don't take a defensive stance on your chosen (and his preferred) brands. And his technique stuff, whilst largely oriented towards beginners, is pretty decent too...

EDIT: I must say I rarely spend any time watching any of the channels. For those I do, it's occasional visits...

WeeklyImogen: it deals mostly with model photography but provides a lot of good concepts for general photography and composition as well as planning a shoot,

James Popsys because I like to be entertained and he has a lot of good insights as well.

Sean Tucker: especially his new series on light.

Another vote for Thomas Heaton. Travels the world, pleasant and gently humorous demeanour. Manages to create two most weeks.

Gee, there's a lot of mediocrity out there, especially gear-related (cough) SnapChick (cough) Fro Knows (cough), etc.

The art and technique stuff IMHO is pretty lousy too but for beginners I like David Bergman's stuff for Adorama (he should be doing a lot more, he's an award-winning pro), and Daniel Norton's processes in his longer 'live' segments. I don't mind Ed Verosky, either.

I think the paid material from Creative Live is more useful, but it's up and down in quality so you do have to choose wisely.

Brendan van Son vlogs almost daily. He's a bit like a Canadian Thomas Heaton, except not. They occasionally team up.

I also like Craig Roberts (E6 Vlogs).
Craig is great because he discovers magical images around his local area or short drives away. You don't have to be a globetrotter.

It's such a fine balance sharing expertise without coming across as patronising; or being vulnerable without false modesty (my kids call it humblebragging).

Thorsten von Overgaard's YouTube channel is called - Magic Of Light. Thorsten is a Leica photographer, but much of what he says applies to all of us. He's my favorite photographer by a wide margin!.

Also, you might want to check out his website and
the above video too.

Thomas Heaton and Sean Tucker for actual photography. They seem like nice guys too.

I also like Christopher Frost and Dustin Abbott for gear reviews (though not much in the way of K-mount).

I watch Atola Visuals as well, and yes, that angry guy (very mixed reaction to him though).
