Alan Norsworthy - Photographer - Biography
Originally from Northern England, Alan Norsworthy has been a photographer since the late 1960's.
He moved to Canada in 1973 and has made Guelph, Ontario his home for over 25 years.
Alan has been involved with photography since his early teens. However life, children, mortgages and work pushed aside his passion for photography.
Now later in life he has the time to pursue his hobby, or should I say his “passion”.
Although his first love is using old film camera’s he has embraced the digital age with modern equipment from Nikon.
His wet darkroom of long ago has been replaced with the new digital darkroom in the form of computer technology.
No matter, whether it is film, old camera’s or the new digital camera’s of today Alan uses the tools at hand to record what he see’s as he travels the land that he loves, be it close to home or “Up North”, “Down East” or “Out West”
“ your love for the land is evident in your images” was a recent comment he received and he agrees, it is the land in all it’s beauty and all it’s seasons that drives him forward.
In sharing what he sees, feels and loves he hopes to inspire others and he believes it is that knowing that will help preserve what we have for our children and their children.
