When Two Educators Just Don’t Get Along!

Gavin Hardcastle…  what can I say, he is hilarious and really a comedic genius in the Photography community.  It is not often that you find someone you can learn from and almost die of a belly laugh in the process.   I’d say he is a welcomed breath of fresh air in a community that can often be too dry and lackluster due to the nature of what we do… afterall it is pretty techy and nerdy 🙂

After wacthing hours of his YouTube videos, I felt I just had to get on his channel somehow!  So we recently linked up, staged a little troll fight on YouTube, smashed our heads together,  and came up with the funniest Photoshop video you will ever see!

Truth is, I have known of Gavin for a VERY long time!  He used to write for Digital Photography School several years ago and I would read every one of his articles.  I don’t even think he knows that…  I sound like a crazed fanboy.

In this tutorial (if we can call it that) Gavin and I have a little fun with our YouTube audiences. We throw some jabs at each other, have some laughs, and produce a photo that may be seen in the Louvre next year, who knows…

I don’t say this lightly at all, Gavin produces some of the best vlogging videos for landscape photographers I have ever seen.   They are a combination of comedy and education all bundled up into a beautiful accent.  His accent makes me jealous…
