G.A. Fuller Photography

Gerald is a life long resident of Vancouver Island, BC Canada. Born in Campbell River and raised at Nanoose Bay, Gerald grew up with the beaches and creeks as his play ground, today Gerald lives on Little Mountain overlooking the Salish Sea. A creative and self-taught photographer, Gerald has had a passion for exploring the Pacific Northwest Coastal communities to locate and photograph Totem Poles and connect with First Nation carvers.

Gerald was raised from the age of 4 years old by a Coast Salish Step-father who became his father, as Gerald grew up he was introduced to First Nation culture and in his late teens he attended a Snuneymuxw (Coast Salish) Potlatch. Some First Nation People say that this is where the seed was planted and Gerald received his vision and desire to photograph the Totem Pole in his later years. Apart from his photography Gerald loves to go “Beyond the Photograph”, with research to ensure that the native artist is honored and recognised for their work.

It is through his unique composition and style of photography that Gerald brings a new life and excitement to the sometimes over-looked artistry and mythology that connects and surrounds us in the Pacific Northwest.
