We’re photowalking with photographer Thomas Hawk on today’s Marc Silber Show Advancing Your Photography. Thomas is a San Francisco Bay Area-based photographer and his goal in life is simple—to photograph and publish a huge library of photographs covering a wide range of subjects, in fact he plans to hit one million images. To do this, he shoots, processes, publishes photos every day. He shares his photography tips as he adds new pictures to his library on today’s photowalk.
Thomas Hawk approaches each scene from different angles and can shoot up to 50 different images of the same subject until he feels he got the right shot. He demonstrates this on our photowalk as he switches lenses and tells us his approach while photographing the “Big Building” on the Peninsula School campus.

Tell us what you learned from this PhotoWalk (and join us on our next).

    Marc, Great video I think more photowalks will be a great way to see how a photographer is thinking at the moment they press the shutter. again great video and thanks to Thomas.

    I enjoyed this, but who was doing the video? Looks like they couldn’t make up their mind as to which composition they wanted.
