Amazing Vancouver

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

This multi-row pano captures three dynamic elements of beauty that we are lucky to have in Vancouver—the city, the mountains, and the ocean. Originally shot in 2013, this award-winning photo represents a unique moment in time, capturing an unobstructed view of the downtown Vancouver skyline that no longer exists, overtaken by new buildings and additions to the city.

Taken just after sunset, the glow of the horizon reflects off the expansive cityscape, lighting up the buildings in a stunning display of golden orange hues. Since Vancouver sunsets evolve and transform from one moment to the next, I had a short 10-minute window to take the 100 photos that combine for a panoramic view with incredibly precise detail; from the clarity of the windmill on Grouse Mountain and the ski hills on Cypress, to a friend’s boat easily spotted in the False Creek Marina.

Timing the reflection of the post-sunset glow provided a similar challenge to capturing the co-existence of colorful autumn foliage set against the backdrop of fresh snowfall on the mountaintops. I’d attempted this shot many times only to find the clouds had rolled in, or Vancouver’s unpredictable weather had simply rendered the day a miss. This photo holds a lot of meaning, commemorating the transformative and dynamic beauty of my favorite city—amazing Vancouver.

Photographic print

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
