What ever happened to some of the Utube photo guys?
1

I know some of you have no time for Utube but I've watched thousands of vids.  A few people have come and gone.  There was a guy named Matt I think from New Zealand or somewhere.  There was the accident prone woman who had a girlfriend.  The guy who got accused of messing with his young models.  One guy made a point of never cropping a picture.  There was the over sharpening guy who I think is still around.

How awful to be known to the world in general as "the over sharpening guy".

No-cropper is The Fro, real name Jared Polin, from Philadelphia. Known for promoting that he shoots RAW.

He accepts assignments from magazines and newspapers, and has created a good book about Bernie Sanders.

As mentioned already, Matt Granger is from Melbourne, moved to New York for a while, and relatively recently moved to Hong Kong.

A relative newcomer to YouTube is Kym Illiams, from Perth Australia, who shoots Formula 1 racing. Last season he shot every race, and he expects to do the same this year.

Some other Youtube photographers I follow work partly for themselves and Adorama TV, and it gets mixed up.

Daniel Norton is a commercial, fashion and portrait photographer with a studio high up in a building in New York City.

Daniel shares his studio with Seth Miranda, who is on the commercial side of portraiture.

Also on Adorama TV and her own You Tube site is wedding and social / family photographer Vanessa Joy. She's a Canon acknowledged photographer.

And Weekly Imogen is a somewhat distinctive British YouTube site, where a photographer in his 40's photographs (mostly) women between 17 -25 in somewhat skimpy outfits, with the models talking about what the sessions are like.

Finally, back to Australia. Peter Coulson is a fashion, commercial and portrait photographer in Melbourne.

So, If we go back to the original post, we can see there are lots of photographers left on YouTube.

(Peter Hurley, Joe McNally, Mark Wallace...)

Would the over-sharpening guy be Ken Rockwell by any chance?

That's the guy. I couldn't come up with a name. Ken and  Fro.

I have forgotten about a lot of them over the years and they never pop up on my suggested feed. I guess my tastes have changed.

Matt (The Art of The Image) Ballard, a Canadian YouTuber, was a sadly a suicide in 2018.

Was noted in a thread posted on DPR Dec. 12 2018. His videos remained online for some months.

Re: What ever happened to some of the Utube photo guys?

There was a time when other big YouTubers mentioned Jason Lanier or hanged out with him but this totally stopped after the accusations. Big photography sites also no longer wrote articles about his videos or posted them. In the last two years he only had one video with more than 100.000 clicks. He was way more successful with that years ago when he didn't stop mentioning that he is the photographer with the biggest YouTube channel.

It's a cross Ken Rockwell has borne for years, alongside his 'Saturate the cr@p out of it' title.

I'll check this out for sure!

And don't forget Ken Rockwell.
