Norm Yip was born and raised in Canada by Chinese parents. He received his B. of Arts degree (cum laude) in 1984 at the University of Saskatchewan and his B. of Architecture degree in 1989 at the University of Toronto.

In 1994, he moved to Hong Kong where he worked as a project architect for Wong & Tai Associates Ltd and RTKL International Ltd before pursuing his interest in art and photography. In 1999, he co-founded the organization art collective Meli-Melo Artists Alliance (MMAA), to which he curated numerous art exhibitions with artists from Canada, Thailand and Hong Kong.

Eventually in 2001, he formed Norm Yip Photography and set up Studio 8 -- a semi-public photographic and art space located in the heart of Sheung Wan -- where he hosted private and selected exhibitions. Since then, he has exhibited in all three mediums of photography, acrylic painting and graphite.

As a photographer, Norm's work has appeared in HK Magazine, WHERE, Global Investor and American Express' Centurion magazine. Celebrities he has photographed include Zhang Yimou, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Destiny's Child and Korean pop-star Rain.

To many, Norm is recognized for his fine art photographs of beautiful and sensuous Asian males. His work has been featured in 2Blue and Dreamboys 2, both special edition of Blue magazine, known for its excellence in fine art male photography.

In 2005, Norm created Studio 8 HK Publishing and published The Asian Male 1.AM a photography book featuring nude and semi-nude images of Asian men taken over a period of five years from 2000-2005. The Asian Male 2.AM is norm's follow-up photography book to 1.AM, a continuation of his work and imagery of Asian men.

Norm Yip is a photographer, artist, and publisher. His work and passion is in creating images that contain depth, beauty, layering and impact. The viewer cannot let go so easily. His philosophy revolves around the idea that what you do and create must have permanence and longevity, imbedded with meaning and thoughfulness, rather than the fleeting moment of the day, nor of the season. Fashions may change, but the Spirit and energy that permeates the image must go beyond. He calls it timelessness. The best and most memorable music, paintings, sculptures, and architecture is just that, unfettered by time -- these are the real classics that will remain forever memorable yesterday, today or tomorrow.
