About

Forever intrigued with art’s ability to challenge senses of reality, Conor Culver combines photography and digital design to create captivating surrealist images. Born and raised in the colorful state of Colorado, Conor is a graduate of The University of Colorado Denver with a B.F.A. focusing dually on photography and digital design.

Conor was first drawn into the hidden wonders of the sea after earning his scuba certification at the age of 12. His journey with photography began soon after as he began to capture an underwater world; a place that still influences him today. He has photographed underwater life in many places around the world, including Australia, Palau, Indonesia, Belize, Cayman Islands, The Dry Tortugas, Norway, Bonaire, Hawaii, Curacao, Socorro, and Fiji.

After exploring the allure of fine art photography in college, Conor began to blend different images together in the darkroom and experimenting with various methods. His haunting collection ‘Out of Sight, Out of Mind’ and the enchanting ‘Underwater Surrealism’ highlight the dreamlike realities he creates, using both digital photography and the darkroom.

Conor has received awards in the Our World Underwater Competition, Ocean Art Competition, Scuba Diving Magazine’s Through Your Lens Competition, and UnderwaterPhotography.com’s Annual Competition. He has been published in magazines around the world including Scuba Diving Magazine, Asian Diver, Dive Magazine, and Scuba Zone Magazine. He continues to show throughout Colorado and the United States.

He currently resides in Golden, Colorado.
