Steve Wallis, also referred to as "The Bob Ross of Stealth Camping",[1] is a Canadian YouTuber known primarily for his camping and outdoor based videos.


Founded on 19 April 2010, the channel has focused more specifically on non-traditional styles of 'boondocking', urban stealth, gold mining, bush crafting and yard camping.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

Such style has grown popular on YouTube which deviates from standard content-creation in which perfection, camera positioning and scripts are valued. With such cheap and relaxed approach, Wallis is another successful example of the psychology concept Pratfall Effect (in which by not being perfect and through honesty one actually attracts its viewers more).[9][10]

Personal life[edit]

Steve Wallis was born in Vancouver on September 10th, 1981. He resides outside of Edson, Alberta, but has resided in the city of Edmonton in the past where he does his "stealth camping." He records the adventures of himself and his good friend, "crazy neighbor."[11]. Wallis has stated he is happily married to a "beautiful wife" who shares his "hunker down" lifestyle, although she does not share his passion for being on camera.[12]
