2017 has been an amazing year and honestly I owe it all to you! Each and every one of you who watch my video photography tutorials and comment and share them - if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be able to do this. And in all fairness - I owe a huge thank you and shout out to my wife who supported the idea for this journey and tolerates my crazy work hours and travel schedule.
I was doing some homework and reviewing my YouTube analytics to get a better sense of what worked and what didn’t work this year and to help me plan for next year - so I thought I would take a few minutes and share with you my top eleven videos from 2017 based on the number of views and if you stay tuned until the end - I’ll share my top five videos of all time - just in case you missed them or in case you want to see my altar ego.
