Peter McKinnon is listed as joining Youtube on February 15, 2010. Since then he has become one of the most popular and followed Youtubers.
His about page modestly says, “I teach things about photography and cinematography. Oh, I also VLOG. 🙂 And drink coffee. Lots of coffee.”
He’s not kidding about coffee, he loves his coffee and until lately you rarely saw him without coffee. But he is much more than a coffee drinker.
He’s taught photography and cinematography, but he has also taught youtubers they can make their dreams come true as long as they just stick to their goals.
He’s inspired many young and old artists to continue to create. Despite his success he still takes time to talk with his subscribers and fans as much as possible by responding to comments.
McKinnon has over 3.5 million subscribers and has managed to continue vlogging without sponsorship. He has developed physical and software merchandise.
One of his recent projects, “The Bucket Shot” kept fans eagerly waiting for the reveal and has inspired many photographers.
Congratulations Peter McKinnon on your well deserved win!
