Photographer/YouTuber Taylor Jackson got chatting to some of the most recognisable faces of photography at Sony Kando. The result? A 15-minute video of them giving their #1 tip for photographers who are just starting out.

The entertaining video delivers some impromptu sage advice from pros such as YouTube super-star iJustine, top-notch wedding photographer Scott Robert Lim, and famed photojournalist David Burnett.

The tips range from basic (never forget your memory card) to more inspired (build your work around the things you love), to practical (learn where the good light is).
