Justin Tyler Norton

American, b. 1980, Arizona, based in the pacific northwest.

i studied painting at a small school in Italy between 2003 to 2006. My interest in making portraits transitioned from paint to photography sometime around 2010. I love the process of photography because it involves technical problem solving and making connections with people.

I learned photography by processing black and white film in a darkroom, and printing my photographs by hand. I was fortunate to have access to a contemporary darkroom in Phoenix, arizona, where I could spend hundreds of hours learning the foundational principles of photography. The time I spent in a darkroom working on first principles has continued to inform my practice.

I am a founding member of the pacific northwest greyhound club (PNGC) in Portland, Ore.

In meiner freizeit lerne ich auch Deutsch.
