Originally from Northern England, Alan Norsworthy has been a photographer since the late 1960's.
He moved to Canada in 1973 and has made Guelph Ontario his home for the last 24 years.
" I remember visiting the CN Tower in the early 70's and the guide said that as far as you could see in any direction is the best farmland in Canada. That comment echoes down the years as I watch subdivisions eat up the landscape."
The area around Guelph offers up a plethora of rural images which Alan captures with his artistic vision. His work covers everything from macro photographs of flowers, sweeping landscapes, historic buildings and old abandoned farms in both colour and Black and White.
"This is where I find my inspiration, I have a need to show people the beauty I see as I walk the woods and fields of Southern Ontario"

Today Grant put on a portrait workshop for the Guelph Photographers Guild.
I asked Brit to come with me to allow me another chance to get a portrait of her.
The idea was to use the studio setup to make a portrait with my Hasselblad, unfortunately the Hasselblad or the wireless setup wouldn't co-operate so I took 2 quick images with my D300.
This is one of them.
Thank you sweetie for putting up with me and my strange friends for 2 hours just so that I might steal 1/180 second of your life to brag about.
What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot
