Top 5 Photography YouTube Channels for Photographers

Author: Libby - Printique by Adorama

Every month, we ask questions to our members about what and who inspires them the most. This month we focus on the top photography YouTube channels out there  that have helped our members along their creative path. According to  our Printique Members, here are the top 5 YouTube channels for photographers.
1. Adorama 
Without a question, Adorama’s channel is rich in information for the new and experienced photographer.  It is more than a just a camera store, it is an educational resource like no other. It has several different channels, each focused on a different aspect of photography. Mark Wallace does an amazing job of hosting most of  the informational videos. His friendly demeanor and ability to break things down into the simplest of terms makes it easy for photographers to understand and implement.
2. Jared Polin (aka Fro Knows Photo)
With his amazing hair and sincere love for the photography industry, it’s hard not to get caught up in his enthusiasm. Jared Polin, aka FroKnows Photo, offers critiques, tips and great humor. He is determined to help those just starting out by having them get off Auto Mode and switch to Manual Mode. He is a true digital pioneer in the 21st century. Plus, his grandma, Lil,  gives him advice about life on his channel and it is endearing.
3.DigitalRev TV
I can not stop laughing when I watch this channel. The main presenter Kai is so fun. Even the about section has me laughing , “The most subscribed and viewed photography show on the interweb, presented by an asian dude with a British Accent.” With its bright pink graphics and Kai’s dry sense of humor this just makes this channel a delight to watch. Not all instructional videos need to be so serious. You can view new episodes every Monday and Thursday.
4. FStoppers
This is a conglomeration of great photographers coming together to educate the photography community. The channel offers behind-the-scnes videos, gear reviews and so much more. What’s great about this community is that it’s a group of full-time photographers, videographers, retouchers, and editors.  Because of this, it means the group’s  content is always fresh and up to date. Check out the taser portrait series – it’s shocking.
5. Phlearn
You can’t be a photographer in today’s day and age without knowing about PhotoShop and Lightroom. Aaron always has a smile on his face and  puts the “Phun”  in PhotoShop and Photography. It’s important to know the ins and outs of PhotoShop and this channel is dedicated to getting you on the right track.
