County Photographer Phil Norton moved to Prince Edward County in 2007 after 26 years working as a photographer and journalist in the Montreal region. Born in Pittsburgh USA in 1957 he toured North America by bicycle (1979 – 80) as a follow-up to his environmental science degree from Penn State University. At the age of 15, and in the footsteps of his father, grandfather and great grandfather, he purchased a camera (Pentax SLR). After experimenting with an artistic approach and many hours in the darkroom, he evolved into documentary photography where he made his career. Now teaching photography and leading outings and workshops, he is merging art with journalism and looks forward to assembling his body of work for exhibitions and slide presentations along the recurring themes and lifelong passions — the natural world, environmental issues and travel.
