I don't see how someone who makes their living from teaching workshops, selling their books, etc... can be expected to create videos and disseminate them for free.

Workshops make sense for those of us who derive income from our photography.

Quite a lot of us do this because we love it, and while workshops might be nice, how many hobbyists have the discretionary spending and vacation time to burn on these things regularly?

For us hobbyists, the Youtube videos are great. They are by no means comprehensive. But sometimes they are "just enough" to set someone down the right path.
