Introductions to a biography and biographies alone tend to be difficult for me, I can never decide if I should begin by introducing myself in a first person or a third person perspective. It's either, "Hi, my name is Norman Leong and I am a born and raised Calgarian", or "Norman Leong is a born and raised Calgarian". Honestly, I tend to avoid biographies in general but since this is my website, displaying, promoting, and selling my photography, I should probably introduce myself a little.
I am a 100% family dedicated man. It is a no brainer for me when it comes to my wife and son that I make sure that I am there for them everyday, through thick and thin. I grew up in a dysfunctional family, one where a lot of your childhood memories are of arguments and seeing my parents go through the different stages of divorce. Photography is my outlet to really be me, to express and share my art with others. It forces me out of my comfort zone to truly experience life and what it has to offer. And to be honest I wouldn't be pursuing my passion if it wasn't for my wife pushing me out there and being my support and council.
I've devoted a lot of my time to photography as a way for me to escape, to forget about the negativities, and to capturing the happiest moments in my life and in others. My photography style focuses on your major life experiences, like engagements, elopements and intimate weddings, new families, special moments between Mom and baby or Dad and baby. Allow me to capture all these amazing moments for you, and invest in yourself and your family it is worth it!
Life happens all too fast.
