Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:


  1. Hi Marco, I know that you are a Fuji shooter and have invested into this system for a few years. But if you would be free to buy a new mirrorless camera system today, which one would you pick and why? And BTW, I loved your interview with Jeff Widener, it was very inspiring. Thank you for all the work and great PPN content!

Question from: Edward, Toronto, Canada


  1. I have a very simple and maybe a bit superficial question: Some of the camera bodies that I’m looking at right now are offered in black or silver. Should I just pick the one I like better or can you think of strategic reasons which one could be better?

Question from: Liz, San Diego, California


  1. Hi Marco, I have started to become a more serious photographer about 3 years ago. I share my images on Instagram and Flickr and have received many likes and some positive comments so far. Now I have been invited to submit my images to a photo competition. What are your thoughts on photo competitions? Are they any good to make me more famous and expand my network or are they a waste of time and money?

Question from: Adrian, Melbourne, Australia
