After Kaiman Wong, I see myself as the second most influential photographer and person on YouTube for photography. I am certainly #1 for street photography.

This is how I did it:

Just have fun with it

Don’t take it seriously. Kaiman Wong; this guy is truly the Jeremy Clarkson of YouTube, photography, fun, entertainment. My personal lesson:

Don’t take it too seriously. Just have fun.

Make videos which are fun to produce for you, and fun to watch!

Create what you would like to see

A lot of what I created on YouTube was just personal interest; I wanted to create what I wanted to see.

For example when I was curious on *how* to shoot street photography, I started to do YouTube GoPro street photography POV videos. I also was curious on how to shoot a flash, and made some videos on that too.

Create to fulfill your own personal curiosity

Even my more recent stuff with GoPro fusion and 360 … I wanted to explore more virtual reality.

Many of my videos were to show my perspective; my view. For fun, entertainment, and also education.

Education

I believe creating videos on photography and beyond can be both educational and entertaining. This seems like the magic combo. If you don’t include both, you’re gone.

Just make ‘bad’ videos and upload them

Making well edited videos on YouTube seems silly. Why? I just see YouTube as a free dumping ground for any video things you create. If you want to create highly polished videos, better to sell your videos for a profit [see ERIC KIM Street Photography Starter Kit].

Don’t have a crew

To create things with a crew; too much coordination. Better to just do it all yourself.

This is why I am such a huge proponent of GoPro, or just shooting 4K video footage yourself.

All you need is shooting video on your camera, or a GoPro. And just use iMovie.

You must enjoy creating videos

If any part of the video creation process is hateful, you’re doing something wrong. Make it Uber-easy for yourself.

For myself, I meta-learn for myself *as* I am creating videos. I create videos both for others and myself.

Fulfilling personal curiosity
