Bob Horowitz

In real life, I am a recently retired Silicon Valley IT manager who as been living in — and loving — San Francisco for over three decades.

Regarding photography, I am self-taught, which explains my brilliant portraiture skillz.

More about my bad habits here and here and here.

Anyway, when I’m not here or surfing porn online, I can be found terrorizing the internets via Flickr and Twitter. I can also be reached at bob(at)

    Hi Bob! This is great. And that picture of your mom and her fanny pack and the man with only half a head is one of my all time favorites – of yours and in general.
    Hope to see you soon!

      Hi, Kelly! That other guy is Jim. And it was pure luck to have caught Mom in a natural pose (if you call a dislocated arm natural). Anyway, she’s the best mom in the whole world.

      I’ll be out in Massachusetts in a few months, knocking at your door.

      Thanks, Nicole! We need to go shooting again soon. In fact, Santa Cruz trembles in anticipation of our arrival.

    Bob I love your photography, thanks very much for sharing. I especially like your ‘Pyro’ person (who seems to have replaced Justin Bieber?).
    My blog chat’s with photographers about making one of their images. If you’re interested I’d be happy to feature you some time & link it to you on AllCity.
    Good Shooting

      Hi, Ryan. You guys make a great couple – I wish I was single and playing with you (Mom, don’t be reading this thread).

      So what caught my eye was that you were standing in the clear, not in the middle of the crowd, against and interesting backdrop, and you were obviously a couple, with all the body posture that comes with that. I’m guessing you both were having a case of eye-ball overload by that point in the afternoon – it happens after a few hours at the Folsom Street Fair). You know, where you continue to gaze over the crowd but the overall impact has glazed your eyeballs. And forgive me for this, but the mischievous inner voice in my head was hoping you’d break into my favorite routine from a beloved pairing in the past: who’s on first.

    Are you the Bob Horowitz who worked at Herzl Camp in the early 60′s? If so, please respond to my email so we can get you our staff reunion information. Thank you.

      Sorry – that’s not me. In the early 60′s I was in junior high. But good luck with your search. I’m sure the Bob Horowitz you’re looking for is dashing, brilliant, and well endowed, like all of us are :)
