Ian Norman, co-founder of The Photon Collective, is a full time traveler, photographer and entrepreneur. In February 2013, he called it quits on his 9-to-5 to pursue a self-directed career in photography. He started his flagship photography project, lonelyspeck.com, to teach photographers of all skill levels how to photograph the Milky Way. After two years of overwhelmingly positive responses to his website, tutorials, and free learning tools on Lonely Speck, he was ready to expand into other realms of photography. Thus, The Photon Collective was born — a community where Ian and Diana (his girlfriend) aim to spread their photography knowledge and experiences freely with the world.
