Welcome to Episode 087 of the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen podcast with Thomas Heaton!
Thomas is a landscape and travel photographer living in North East England with his wife, Charlotte, and his dog Monty. Thomas enjoys most things that can be done in the outdoors. Second to photography, another passion of Thomas' is rock climbing where he partakes in 3 disciplines; sport, trad & bouldering. Thomas is well-known for his YouTube channel where he has garnered a very large following due to his entertaining and educational videos.
We covered some fun topics this week, including:
1. Landscape photography tunnel vision and iconic locations.
2. His journey onto the YouTube platform and his advice for others for growing engagement.
3. Social media advice.
4. Grad filters - yay or nay?
5. Location copying and the environmental impacts on those locations.

This week on Patreon, Thomas answered many questions posed in our Facebook group, including his absolute best/favorite landscape photography experiences. We also talk about his displeasure with his Canon setup and what he is considering as an alternative, and staying inspired to shoot locally.
