Let’s Talk About PETER MCKINNON |

I was sitting in front of my screen reviewing many YouTubers work, watching videos in fast forwards and was selecting multiple names in a list to finalize it for my task, in a sudden I saw a video Step up your Filmmaking – The Importance of B-Roll that video was by PETER MCKINNON. Yes! Peter Mckinnon a Photographer & Filmmaker who’s a lover of coffee and a good storyteller. I asked myself Who Is This Peter McKinnon who has charming nature, perfect sense of communication and the most important excellent work. At that moment I stopped my searching and I said: “ This is the Guy I’m going to write about”. So Let’s Get Started…

Mr. Mckinnon is a Scorpio who was born on Oct 28, 1985, in Toronto, Canada. An amazing photographer who displays his crisp videos with lots of education tips for his viewers about photography and cinematography on his eponymous YouTube channel: Peter Mckinnon.

In 2009 Peter’s career splashed and skyrocket when he did The Plaid Chair Series. It got a noticeable project and share all across the internet and Social Media. His work has been featured throughout multiple platforms like Uncrate, The Discovery Channel, Gizmodo, ABC’s Revenge, MAXIM, Buzzfeed, etc. In January he was featured in MAGIC Magazine’s 6-page article torching his cinematography and The Plaid Chair series.

If anyone wants to learn cinematography, editing, and storytelling he or she has to watch The Owl – A Film by Peter McKinnon. He works shows a variety of skilled shots which speaks by itself.
