Oh hai /p/, I noticed that there are a lot of youtubers for photography that is geared towards beginners, mwacs and gwacs, or gearfags like froknows, Imogen, snapchick or digitalrev.
Is there anything out there that discusses at I higher level than entry?
Like Gracie Breakdown is for BJJers, or Drummertalk is for drummers.
Maybe I'm just some selfish asshole, but why would I want to teach my competition for free on the internet?
Photography is already such an oversaturated (hehehe) market and getting jobs isn't the easiest thing to do. If I would pass on any knowledge on to other people, I would feed people that could potentially steal my jobs information I worked very hard on acquiring.
I'm started three years ago and far from earning more than 20.000 a year from my prints or publications, so I'm not a pro at all, but I get along just fine and my business is growing. Why would I share my business and photography secrets and tips for a little youtube money?
I'm not a bjjer, but I am a judoka, so I'm not familiar with the drama, you are talking about. However, they do a video podcast that talks about current grappling headlines without getting into the weeds on ego, endorsements or gear. That's why it appeals to me as a judoka. I'm looking for a photo channel that does the same.

He is, but he's far from "higher level".
Ted loves hearing himself way too much to be a good youtuber, he's able to talk, but rarely says anything. I still enjoy some of his videos more than the other youtube crap we are used to, but his knowledge is on par with a photography student in his first semester.
Chose one. grappling techniques in MMA are not that high level.
He does talk too much, especially at the start of a video, but it doesn't matter if he's only as good as a student if he has the information that you want.
I've only discovered him recently but he's done a few videos that were very valuable to me. It's no exaggeration to say I could have developed my first roll of film (that I did a few days ago) using only the information in his videos (although a lot of that info is easily available).
He is not a professional photographer but plays one on youtube and sometimes his research is not very good. It depends on what you are looking for. You can learn some basic techniques and see some interviews (if you can stand to see him in every frame).

Christopher Frost perhaps? Not the nicest voice, not too entertaining, often just a lot of data about lenses and stuff.
For people who do it as a hobby?
Not OP but I agree, for example I can watch tons of videos on the rules of thirds, but anything else? nope.
My camera has a setting with lines all over the image, sure I could try and see what works. But some pro helping out would be nice on cold and rainy days.
Anyone got a video where a photographer goes out and explains why he does the things he does?
I want to see what a photographers tries before getting a good shot.
I remember watching froknows doing that but I seriously can't stand him.

If all of your success is only by hiding a few "secrets" (quotation marks because I'm 100% certain that there's nothing you do that isn't detailed somewhere on the internet), then you fucking suck. There's very few fields in which this isn't true, and it's especially true of literally everything in the service sector.
It's entirely your fault if people are out there out working you. There's no magic to it, no secrets. They're just being more willing to put in the work to get the business.
You will literally never succeed if you keep or hold this mentality.
You also don't see this mentality much in successful people. It's people who are already hoarding the talent they don't have, because they DO believe that there's some secret out there that will help them be successful (because if the answer is hard work, practice, creativity, or people skills, they're fucked)
developers are oversaturated but i still find work thanks to my skill.
are you not a skilled photographer?
I literally only photo for fun, yet a friend paid me $200 to help him shoot a weeding.
There will be a time where you need help, and the only help that will be available is untrained, do you really want that burden?
PS: have a non edited shitty shot from said event
PSS: we got so many good photos from them holding up the certificate, try to make that a priority during a weeding shoot.

No, had to nuke a bunch of images thanks to shit software.
Notice theres some bizzare grain/color issue in the photo, mostly noticeable towards the bottom.
working on getting lightroom so i can work with these meme sony raw images.
This thing never gave me an issue till i started shooting raw
turns out it was the dynamic range optimizer in "image data converter" fucking everything to hell and back.
other than that this thing is amazing, my friend had a 5100 fall off a drone about 100ft up didnt break the body nor the kit lens, pretty damn impressed with this little bugger.
