Gordon Laing photographed on the streets of San Francisco.
I had a chance to catch up with Gordon Laing during his recent visit to Startup Land. Gordon is the founder and editor of the popular CameraLabs.com – a comprehensive photographic equipment review website that he founded in 2005. In addition to being a fount of knowledge, he is also a genuinely nice guy who’s up for photographic adventure.
I was after an iconic portrait of Gordon against the San Francisco skyline but we also managed to have a little fun with an alternate shot before the night was over.
In the days after his death, thousands of Silicon Valley residents made their way to the Apple retail store in Palo Alto, California to leave personal notes of remembrance mourning the loss of Steve Jobs. Located just blocks away from his residence in Palo Alto, Jobs frequently visited this particular Apple store to interact with customers and fans. The notes, which were written on colored post-it notes, would eventually go on to cover the entire facade of the store – turning it into a public memorial for Jobs and the spark for a world wide trend that would be repeated at Apple stores around the world.
UPDATE: One of the images from this series just won a “Photo of The Year” award from Digital Photo Pro Magazine.

Rest in peace Steve Jobs. You will be missed.
