Norm was born and raised on the east coast of Canada in St. John's, Newfoundland. The windy and jagged coastal landscapes of the island has inspired much of his work. Frequenting Hong Kong as a child and experiencing the bustling neon-lit streets has also shaped both his interests and overall aesthetic to this day. He loves to be involved in films that explore human nature and social/cultural dynamics.

He is a full member of the Canadian Society of Cinematographers and has been fortunate enough to travel the world shooting feature films, commercials, and music videos. His work has garnered international recognition, numerous nominations, and awards for best cinematography and has been screened at Sundance, TIFF, Tribeca, Busan, Fantastic Fest, Sitges, as well as many other festivals around the world. 

His cinematography is generally recognized for being conceptual, expressive, tonal, natural, and minimalist.
