    Watch this guy...

    Thomas Heaton YouTube Channel

    Not sure my link above works because I’m abroad, or just that it doesn’t work period - but look up Thomas Heaton on YouTube to find his channel.

    I’m sure many of you already follow him - but I stumbled across his channel by accident, and I’ve been truly impressed - I’ve worked my way through around 50% of his videos so far, and I’ve found them all entertaining, many very useful, and again others simply inspiring.

    A no nonsense, no frills approach to landscape photography - practically no pretence to be someone other than a guy who loves to get out and take photographs.

    You have all seen at least one of his images, as the splash-screen on Flickr is his (the tent on Place Fell, above Ullswater).

    I did search the forum before posting this, and am amazed he hasn’t been mentioned before!

    Enjoy!

    I'll enthusiastically second this, the videos Thomas makes are always made to a very high quality and clearly involves a lot of effort on his part. He is very straightforward and is an engaging presenter with self depreciating humour. His video's are a treasure trove for landscape photographers.

    In fact, it was in a video Thomas posted that he mentioned he is inspired by (among others) Bruce Percy, a UK photographer who's work is stunningly beautiful. Bruce has just released a new book covering nearly a decade of Altiplano (The high plateau of South America) photography, and I'm looking forward to my copy due to be delivered on Friday! A link to his website below;

    '18-'16

    EDIT: not sure why the text is changing to '18-'16, but if the link doesn't work the address is www.BrucePercy.co.uk

    I can't stick him, and his videos are bloated with inane waffle.

    Huh? :eek: No way, GC. :nono:
    Thomas is superb and certainly one of my favorite landscape channels on YouTube. I won't have a bad word said against him!:censored:

    Really like First Man Photography (Adam) too. :thumbsup:

    ;)

    I’ve watched all his vids and they’re good, but he always looks half asleep to me. There’s loads of decent alternatives. My go to's are:
    e6 vlogs
    Steve O'nions
    Mads Iversen
    Gary Gough
    Julian Baird

    Personally much prefer getting out there to watching videos. The videos just give me itchy feet.
