Palmer was born in Kansas City, Missouri.
In 1941, Palmer won an Academy Award for Best Cinematography (in collaboration with Ray Rennahan) for Blood and Sand. Palmer was nominated on several other occasions—in 1928 for Four Devils, in 1929 for Street Angel, and in 1950 for Broken Arrow. He is sometimes confused with a British cinematographer of the same name (1901-1964) who worked on various UK films and TV programmes until the early 1960s.
Palmer died in Pacific Palisades, California.
