Facilitator: Leif Norman

Leif Norman Bio:

Leif Norman wanted to be a High School Chemistry teacher, but then discovered that education was more than just teaching kids; things were complicated. Luckily, he was still attempting to be a photographer through doing his Chemistry degree at the U of W, and people continued to hire him to shoot festivals, portraits, and various events.

He now puts his chemical knowledge to good use by experimenting with photographic processes from the 19th century, such as Cyanotypes, Salt Prints, and Calotypes. These are fun and artistic but don’t pay the bills, which is why he continues to be a useful commercial and event photographer for the Fringe Fest, Comedy Fest, Cluster Fest, The WAG, PTE, MTYP, Theatre Projects Manitoba, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, The RWB, ft3 architects, Winnipeg City Hall and many more cultural institutions and businesses around Winnipeg. He won’t shoot weddings, but he will show up to the party.

Leif considers himself a renaissance man, and since he was already a Cab Driver, Carnival Worker, Dish Washer in Gimli, Paperboy, MacBook Repairman, Performance Poet, and Voice Actor he figured he could also try to do interviews as good as Peter Gzowski.
