Norm Halm 

born in 1976 in Fremont, Ohio. My romance with photography began at age eight when I received a Fischer Price camera as a gift. I decided to make photography my career during my first photography class in high school. I immediately began assisting local portrait photographers and attended summer courses at the Winona International School of Professional Photography in Chicago, Illinois. Mr. Halm graduated from the Ohio Institute of Photography and Technology in Dayton, Ohio with an associate’s degree in commercial photography.  I was awarded with the Outstanding Portfolio Award for the class of 1997.

In October of 1997, I moved to San Francisco on a Greyhound Bus with very few belongings.  I began working as a freelance assistant and black & white printer for commercial photography studios. From 1998 to 2005 I was apprentice to Daniel Nicoletta.  From 2002 to 2005 I also assisted Said Nuseibeh.  In August of 2005, fellow photographer Keith Gidlund and I opened our own studio and darkroom as the exclusive printers for Ruth Bernhard.  I have also done freelance commercial photography and sell my fine art prints to private collectors.
