"I believe I was always meant to be a creative professional, just by my very nature.

 I discovered photography at age nine and from there it became my metier."

Ellyn Norris is a Canadian photographer/educator and resides in San Diego, California. "Elle" has traveled the world extensively to photograph her experiences within different landscapes and cultures.  She  is drawn to capturing people who have been shaped and influenced by their natural environments. Certain places have resonated with her enough to return to continue her experiences and photography. Iceland has especially captured her heart so spending time there each year has become a perfect balance to her life in Southern California.

Ellyn also gravitates towards Nepal, through its people, culture and nature. She uses her photography to aid the Bo M Karlsson Foundation in Kathmandu, a charity that provides scholarships to Nepalese women,  where less than 3% are able to complete high school. Ellyn recently took on location portraits of the scholarship recipients. In 2017, Ellyn became one of the foundation's "artistes", and created a gallery on her website that directs the photo profits to the scholarship fund. Both initiatives contribute to the charity's funds. Want to know more about the foundation and its artistes? Click here: http://bomkarlsson.com.

Ellyn now shares these inspiring  destinations with photo enthusiasts by hosting yearly photography tours to Iceland and Nepal. Interested in a photo tour?
