BROOKLYN -- Josh Katz started posting skateboard videos on YouTube when he was 9 years old.

Josh's original setup? A low-quality webcam set up pointed out a window. Josh said he would click 'record', run outside, do a skateboarding trick, run back inside and click 'stop'.

This original child hobby was during the beginning of the YouTube phenomenon. Josh never expected it to open a door for a full-time career.

Now, Josh is a 21-year-old recent graduate of New York University. He has become one of the top YouTubers in the New York City area. At NYU, Josh studied marketing and recently graduated. He is pursuing YouTube as his profession full-time sharing his vlog-style photography tutorials.

Josh has been making YouTube videos for over 10 years, ranging from photography to skateboarding, travel and comedy skits.

His recent focus is producing tutorial videos to teach people simple photography concepts, using examples of his self-taught photography.
