    Glad to see there's a few of us here that are watching Tom's vlogs. For me, starting out with photography I was on the look out for similar channels to help progress but with Tom I like the fact it's just inspiring more than anything with the occasional tips video thrown in now and again.

    Not sure about what? It was abused, it withstood it and he pointed out a couple of failings. Pretty good review no?

    Thinks it's more the fact he's becoming more of a walking billboard which has been discussed before. I'm not a fan but watched the ad and thought that it was actually good to put it through its paces properly but I don't want to be watching constant ads. But let's not bring that all up again lol.

    I get what you're saying, but if by doing these reviews it means he's able to go on more trips and make more videos etc, then I'm all for it.

    I figure it did clearly say "ad" in the title and we're now getting two videos a week. Great ad as far as they go, I'm sure if I had a passing interest in that specific bag and searched YouTube for a review I'd have become a subscriber. Guess I'm just too used to videos usually being based around a shoot.

    Just watched the latest video from Thomas, Welcome To Hell - Photography In Bad Weather, the one from the Iceland workshops. For me, one of the best images I've seen in a long time comes up at 10:30 in the video. Taking into account the weather conditions and all the other aspects of the shoot, a great image. I also liked the shot of the abandoned Canon 5D MKIII and tripod in the valley, due, in Thomas's words to someone not watching their gear and being to close to the edge.

    Yup this^

    He's producing 2 videos per week, even when he's away from home, so having to watch* a video that reviews/recommends/advertises a product every little while is a small price to pay.
    * You don't have to actually watch any of them, especially if you see that it's labelled as a review or advert.

    I find he videos much more inspiring than some other more popular youtube photographers. For example Jared 'Fro' Polin is good (if you like his style) for reviews and gear news. But he's not at all inspiring.
    I'm hoping to do a landscape photography trip some point soon, inspired by Thomas Heaton's trips.

    Anyone see the one this Wednesday on the 73in73 project? 73 Peak District golden hour landscapes in 73 days being attempted by a couple who lost their baby hours after a premature birth, in aid of the charities that supported them. I found it quite moving, and well worth supporting. In the video Thomas mentions they were aiming at raising £3,000 and had raised about half that. When I looked today they had blown way past twice the target! Probably not all due to Thomas as I seem to remember the project being featured on the local Midlands news, but still, from the comments its clear the video has helped.

    Agree with this.

    A genial just one of the lads type guy with no pretentious statements.

    We've dug out the wildcamping gear having been inspired by his videos.

    He can only be good then if he influenced and inspired you. The couple of vids that I've seen show exactly what it's like trying to get decent landscapes, i.e. hard work, patience, planning and still coming home with nothing, rather than whipping your gear out of the car, setting up and snapping some great scenes!

    I think Thomas’s videos are very inspiring, I stumbled across him a few weeks ago and enjoyed what I saw even though I previously had very little interest in landscape photography.

    Got me getting my camera out more rather than collecting dust until the next race meeting and have to say I am enjoying learning about a different side of the hobby. I’m now the proud owner of some walking boots and OS maps...

    I'm heading up to the Lake District and Scotland on Sunday for 6 days by myself with only landscape (plus seascape and a bit of wildlife) photography on the agenda.

    This was prompted earlier this year when I started watching his vlogs and has been pushed on further by the many other excellent blogs I have seen (many of them done by the ladies and gents of this parish) since. I watch more youtube than tv these days.

    I am even contemplating doing my own vlog of the trip lol

    I had the pleasure of hearing Thomas speak at a talk here in Northern Ireland a couple of weekends ago and then joining him on a workshop/hiking trip on the saturday evening camping overnight and then sunrise the following morning.
    It was featured on the recent vlog from Dunluce Castle and Kinbane Head. And the weather conditions really were atrocious! He is a really nice down to earth guy and although quite shy at first, we had a real laugh on the Saturday evening in the pub
    and he may even have had too much Bushmills whiskey and slept in on the Sunday morning:D. He stayed for another 2 nights after the workshop finished so it will be interesting to see tomorrows vlog to see waht he came up with.

    That's probably what landscape photography is about. Getting out and about (y). The camera comes after.

    Excellent end of year video by Thomas Heaton where he responds to negative comments on his channel. I don't think he could take Chuck Norris though...

    I quite like his channel and he doesn't take himself too seriously. Wish him all the best.
    Incidentally Chuck Norris is 77 yrs old now but I bet he can still kick ass, lol.

    I thought his latest one was very funny too

    Been out of the "watching YouTube vlogs" for a few weeks but back on it now and in serious catch up mode

    Better than the TV by a mile.

    Its fun but it does eat through the budget quite quickly.

    This lot is from this year, in chronological order and still slightly incomplete. It will be fun sorting out the good ones.

    Some of you might also like Sean Tucker (not sure if already mentioned). Simon Baxter is a good follow and I do enjoy Thomas Heatons videos too.
