When it comes to content creators and watching the videos they've spent hours perfecting, it's easy to get stuck in apps like Instagram and TikTok. Oftentimes, we forget to take the extra step to discover their larger bodies of work. For those of you looking to dive deeper, here are some prime videographers to follow on YouTube this year.

Keenan Lam

We’ve followed Keenan’s Instagram presence for a while, but we have to shine a light on the quality of his growing YT channel. His videos are a mix of filming and editing tips, gear reviews, and stunning travel vlogs. 

One video that’s sure to be of interest for you content creators out there, is his explainer “How I went Viral on Instagram Reels.” He walks viewers through his camera settings, and how he edited the Reel in Premiere Pro. It’s a great example of how you can be successful using only your smartphone and some light editing knowledge. Definitely worth the sub for prime examples of blending vlogging techniques with top-notch branding videos.
