Name: Gaelen Norman | Company: Big Boy Media | Location: Coquitlam, British Columbia. Canada

 

Who is "Gaelen Norman"?
I'm a 29 year old car nut.  If it has 4 wheels and an engine I generally want to drive it and push it to it's limits.  That being said I picked up the photography bug from my grandfather (one of the co-founders of the Toronto Camera Club) and since a young age have been learning more and more about that life.  I've been very lucky to be able to combine the 2 on many occasions and gotten to know many fantastic people along the way.

 

Where are you from?
I grew up in Ontario and moved out to BC when iI was 9. It's been 20 years and I love this place!

Did you go to school for photography or was it something you picked up yourself?

No, I originally went to school to be a draftsman and ended up designing playgrounds for a few years.  Once the recession hit I went back to school to become a web developer and I love every minute of it.

 

How did you get into it?
I originally picked it up from my grandfather who was a fantastic landscape photographer.  As I grew older and got into cars I picked up my first DSLR and ended up shooting every local drifting event I could drive to.

 

How long have you been a photographer for?
6 years

What's your style?
Wide. I shoot a lot of wide panning shots at drifting events and even a lot of other events I see more wide shots than most.

 

What kind of equipment do you use?
I shoot with my Nikon D700 and my 24-70mm 90% of the time.

Do you have any favourite locations for shooting?
On track.

 

What has been your most memorable assignment?
I got hired to shoot a collection of rare exotics very early in my career. It was a long day of almost 20 cars to shoot but I got the chance to drive a Countach, Testarossa and two jaguar E-types.
