City of Fire

The sun burns orange over downtown Vancouver as it slips down from the clouds in the sky toward the horizon, dipping behind the mountains.


It's been a while since I posted anything, sorry to all my Flickr friends for being absent lately. Currently I'm working on developing (no pun intended) another aspect of my photography. Having just picked up a pair of 580EX II flashes and a Pocketwizard Mini TT1 and Flex TT5, I'm trying to wrap my head around flash photography. I've decided that I'm going to attempt a foray into some commercial and product photography, in hopes of moving into the field full time. What might be able to make all this a possibility is an exciting project that I've been a part of over the past few months; the development of an app for iPad, called OfVancouver. This unique app is going to be the first in a series of interactive luxury city guides to the best of everything in Vancouver, from culinary to real estate, fashion, cars, gadgets and other toys.
