As a photographer in Dubai, you spend a lot of time thinking about the creative side of your work. But the truth is, photography isn’t always about the art—it’s also about learning the business and marketing side of the industry as well.
More than that, it’s about constant growth and figuring out the right sources to learn from.
This list is compiled from my personal experience as a photographer, discovering the channels that helped me truly grow and thrive as a professional. Here are five of my favorite YouTube channels for photographers and what you can learn from each.
The best learning resource for a photographer is another photographer, and there are few better than Karl Taylor.
Taylor’s videos are loaded with tips, when it comes to commercial photography, Taylor is a master of his art. He uses both medium format and DSLR cameras so that you can learn the quality difference between them. His product Photography lighting experiments are true worth for any photographers.
Erik Almas has a drool-worthy portfolio and a list of brands and companies that many photographers dream of.
But what unites it all is Almas’ outstanding style, a happy marriage of beautiful environment and beautiful personalities tied together with an aura of romance and cinematic flair.
For fledgling photographers, he’s also a fantastic resource to learn the marketing side of photography, as Almas openly shares the triumphs and tribulations that have shaped his career into what it is today.
