Improve Your Understanding of Architecture With These YouTube PresentersArchitecture Commentary
As an architectural photographer, you also have a great interest in architecture itself. If you are not a trained architect, it’s a good idea to further your knowledge and understanding of architectural theory and ideas, to better understand architects and what they find important in their building design.
If you’re looking to expand your knowledge base, here are a few YouTube channels I personally recommend to get you started:

He also serves as an Associate Dean in the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts and is the co-founder of the practice Design With Company.
Stewart has a YT channel that covers architecture with a wide understanding. He is a good presenter and keeps the viewers interested while he covers complex themes.
