Glen Caswell

A Crown Servant by day, passionate lens handler by night. Tansi, bonjour, hello and greetings from Canada’s Capital Region. I’m Glen—a headshot photographer that volunteers his photography talents with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets (5 Cyclone Squadron), NowILayMeDownToSleep.org and the Municipalité de RUSSELL Township.

I was born in Alberta, raised in Saskatchewan and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1996. My mum is from Honiton, Devon and my father is Woodlands Cree from Sucker Creek First Nations and I have married in to a French-Canadian family.

My passion for photography started young, in secondary school, when we constructed a primitive pinhole camera. Since then, I’ve been passionate about advancements in photographic technologies. While understanding that your photo gear doesn’t yield better images, the possibilities of ‘what is next’ inspires possibility of an image that has yet to be conceived.

Connecting with people, having a vis-à-vis studio portrait session can be incredibly intimate, personable and personally rewarding for both. I have a thirst to create new experiences in the studio and to create a warm, welcoming and fun place to shoot.

Like most fellow countrymen, I’m friendly! I’m looking forward to tap in to the vast amount of resources that the RPS has made available and to connect with fellow photographers.
