Photowalking with a professional

Photowalking with Thomas Hawk is grand, but today we have a real treat: a photowalk with a real professional photographer. Marc Silber. He even has the license plates to prove it! It’s long, but not boring. Just in case you don’t have the hour to spend Rocky made you a short and sweet editor’s choice for you.

Marc has written an eBook on how to take better photos, and we talk about some of the tips in the book. You’ll learn a lot on this hour walk. Plus you get to see some great scenery on a ridge above Palo Alto/Silicon Valley and hear some stories about the property because Marc used to live on the property, which is now a public park.

Oh, and I did almost the entire hour by walking backward. It’s a skill that only my parents would be proud of.

Thank you to Seagate for sponsoring my show and supporting digital photography through not only their storage devices but also by supporting my efforts to do educational photowalks like this.

  1. Isn’t that a slight on Thomas? I mean, he may not be classically trained as a photographer, but his work is just as professional as anything I’ve ever seen.

  3. Thanks Robert, yes I was impressed with your backwards walking with not so much as a stumble…thanks for inviting me to talk about two passions: The Ranch I grew up on and photography…

  5. Photowalking with a Professional…Marc who?

    And I’m sure most of us have heard of Thomas Hawk (at least the ones who follow this sort of thing) so let’s include him too.

    So Thomas, hang in there, maybe get some license plates that validate your photography and we will all look forward to your next Photowalking trek (even if RS doesn’t shoot it).
