What a photography TV show might look like

I came across a new photographer that I’d like to recommend you follow. His name is Thomas Heaton and he is a Northumberland & the north-east based landscape photographer. One of the reasons for the recommendation is he makes the best You Tube videos on landscape photography.

I don’t understand why there has never been a weekly photography TV show produced in the UK. With all the camera / photography related magazines, blogs and podcasts there is clearly a demand. There would be lots of on location shoots, camera tips and talks about new tech and post processing to fill a regular half hour. Thomas Heaton’s videos are exactly the type of on location shoots such a show would contain.

Anyone interested in producing video would learn a lot by copying the techniques in these. He is clearly doing it all including taking the time to have himself walking in from the distance in establishing shots. The end result is very professional.

Of course the goal is seeing the final fine art photography images. He takes you through the creation step by step in his video of images like this one of the Storr on Skye ( its in the background).
