Thomas Heaton, photographers who inspire me

Like many other photographers and channel subscribers around the net at the moment, I am glued to Thomas Heaton’s superb YouTube Channel. I genuinely believe with Thomas, what you see is what you get. We all love how Thomas is the cheeky chappy next door (I bet he’d love me saying that) as well as a bloody good photographer and presenter. The standard and pure quality of Thomas’s YouTube video production raises the bar for all other photographers on YouTube and leaves me wanting more each Wednesday which is the main, but not always the only day in the week that Thomas tends to release his videos. I have noticed many around the net trying to copy Thomas’s style of blogging, but quite frankly, the production quality, photography standards and personality just isn’t there. All credit to you Mr Heaton!

I got serious about photography when I was 16. It all started with film, then digital and now I’m with film again… actually, we have an open relationship. I love being outside and I love the never ending challenge of trying to portray ‘that feeling’, you know, the warm evenings at twilight, the sense of isolation when you have a mountain to yourself, the sound of waves lapping the shore of an empty beach. My images are all about the outdoors and telling a story. To help tell this story I have created a Youtube channel, which has over 100,000 followers and 4million+ views; It seems I share my values with a lot of other people. – Thomas Heaton

Thomas was born on April 26, 1984 in Blackpool. He was first introduced to the dark room at college when he was 16 years old and has been photographing ever since, although his first experience in the dark room was not easy as Thomas can be claustrophobic. He soon overcame this and enjoyed many years of developing film.

Thomas left his job in 2010, where he worked as a Video Technician and became a full-time freelance cameraman and photographer. Thomas runs a commercial photography studio, ProCap as well as working on commissions for Visit England where he photographs landscapes for the promotion of tourism in the north of England. Thomas also makes a living by publishing images in national newspapers and magazines. Thomas does not teach photography workshops but does sell prints on his website.

Thomas creates YouTube videos, which document his landscape and travel shoots. His popularity comes from his extremely honest and unpolished approach to vlogging and photography. His emphasis is on hiking, making the effort and getting to the right place at the right time rather than focusing on equipment. Thomas’ YouTube videos see him shoot landscapes in England, Scotland, Iceland, Yosemite National Park, Sierra Nevada Foothills and Norway.
