About - Cullen Photos

Photography has been a lifelong passion for me. Even when I was an instructor in the Kinesiology Department at Langara College, the Managing Director for Canadian Holographic Developments or founder and coach at Delta Gymnastics, photography was always a strong interest. Now retired from all of that, I concentrate on photography and am eclectic in my choice of subjects.

When spending time on Galiano Island, I love photographing the abundant nature and wildlife there and in studio lighting set-ups, enjoy capturing images of gymnasts and dancers. I continue to support Delta Gymnastics by donating my photos of gymnasts and volunteer event photography for Delta KidSport. I am the Past President of the Delta Photo Club and continue to serve on its executive. Also, I am a member of tabulaRASA Photographic Artists Collective.   

My travels have spanned the globe. I am a freelance travel and feature writer, published in numerous newspapers and magazines such as Canadian Camera, Photo Life, Photography Monthly, and Northwest Travel. I write regularly for Travel Writers Tales, an independent travel article syndicate, and am a member in good standing of the British Columbia Association of Travel Writers. My photos are regularly featured on the Galiano Island Chamber of Commerce brochures.

Very few days go by without me taking photos and I relish the time I spend with a camera. “Which of my photographs is my favourite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”  Imogen Cunningham
