Best selling author, photographer, video producer, and educator Marc Silber joins the show to talk about his latest book "Create: Tools from Seriously Talented People to Unleash Your Creative Life", and how he went from an artistic young kid with a camera hanging out around Heigh Ashbury in the late 60s, to the art institute of San Francisco, to teaching mountaineering, to spending years as a business consultant, to finally re-kindling his love of photography, filmmaking, and a creative way of living. Marc grew up in the hills of Menlo Park, CA and was introduced to photography and the darkroom at a very early age. During his high school years he had the opportunity to spend some time in Mexico with his Rolleiflex and created a body of work that still inspires him today and sent him on a path that would lead him to the art institute of San Francisco. Although Marc was always drawn towards visual storytelling, he was also very drawn to the outdoors, and started teaching mountaineering at the National Outdoor Leadership School. It would be those years of early leadership training that would soon lead him back to education in the creative fields he always loved. During our conversation Marc tells me what inspired him to start his YouTube series "Advancing Your Photography" where he interviews some of the top photographers in the world, the daily tools and habits he uses to help him stay motivated, creative, and productive, what he's learned from long conversations with so many successful creatives, and the advice he gives to others struggling to fulfill their creative goals.
