The Art of Photography


My name is Ted Forbes and I make videos about photography. I’ve been making photographs most of my life and I have a tremendously deep passion for photography that I want to share with you on YouTube. 
The Art of Photography is my channel and I produce photography videos to provide a 360 degree look into the world of making images. Lets do this together!
I make videos covering famous photographers, photography techniques, composition, the history of photography and more.
I also have a strong community of photographers who watch the show and we frequently do social media challenges for photographers to submit their own work. I feature the best and most interesting on the show when we do these so come check it out and get involved!
