About Robert


Robert Norbury is a fine art photographer and photography teacher living and working in Brighouse, West Yorkshire.  Robert teaches photography privately. He has also worked at The Hepworth Wakefield Gallery delivering photography masterclasses.  He worked for a while as an artisan photographer doing portraiture and weddings.

Robert’s passion for photography began in the 1960’s at Batley School of Art and Design where he studied photography the old fashioned way using chemicals and film.   However he is now a complete convert to digital photography for capturing images and printing. He prints all his own work using an Epson giclée printer on Archival Matt paper with pigment inks.

Framed work is available from Robert or The Gallery, Brittannia Road, Slaithwaite, HD7 5HE.

His work has been in a number of exhibitions over the years including The Clocktower in Cumbria.  He was an invited artist at Holmfirth Art Week for many years.  In 2011 he won The Hoppe Street Photography Competition organised by the National Portrait Gallery.  His work has been used on book covers and other publications here and abroad.  He is represented by a major agency.

Paul Hermann Managing Director of Redeye, The Photography Network described Robert’s work as,

“off beat, often humorous, but also often atmospheric and beautiful.”

Tim Soar the architectural photographer said this,

Robert Norbury has an extraordinary eye. His gift, as properly it should be considered a gift, is his capacity to release the shutter when heart and subconscious mind are in perfect union. What Norbury sees, that which Norbury responds to, the world that informs Norbury, most of us can only wonder at.”
