Tatum Wulff, freelance travel, street and portrait photographer and painter, is based on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Tatum has traveled extensively to several evocative, historic and 'off the beaten path' locations worldwide.  Intrigued by cultural diversity and history, her passion for photography was sparked in the early '90's during her initial travels through rural areas of Thailand.  While captivated by the breathtaking surroundings she found herself in, it was the deeply kind and humble local people she crossed paths with, and the friends amongst them she made, which served as a catalyst for her new found love of photography.  Her camera quickly became her closest travel companion.  Subsequent destinations included India, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Israel, Egypt, Spain, Brazil, USA, China, Japan and Sri Lanka.

A deep love of Japan, its people, history and culture, led Tatum to make it her home for 8 years, where she was soon immersed in the traditional arts and became an apprentice for Miwa Atsuko, a nationally renowned master of Nihonga, an honored traditional Japanese art form which uses crushed minerals and natural pigments on washi paper.

Her passion for exploring the world has become a lifestyle and she continues to travel as often as possible. Tatum's creativity is well nourished by a wide array of photographic genres from candid street to scenic landscape and long exposures.

Tatum is available for both painting and photographic commissions and assignments.
