G.A. Fuller Photography

Gerald is a native 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 by a very artistic mother and, from the age of 4 years old by his adopted Coast Salish father, as Gerald grew up he was introduced to First Nation culture.  In his late teens he attended a Snuneymuxw (Coast Salish) Potlatch that impacted his persona. 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 seeks out the historical information though the hand of the carver, and goes “Beyond the Photograph” to ensure the 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.
