Outer Banks Community Names People’s Choice Artist


After tallying over 200 nominations, Dare County Arts Council announces that Daniel Pullen has been selected as the 2018 People’s Choice artist.

Daniel is an award-winning, internationally published documentary photographer. His life and work centers around pursuing the art of the photograph. The Hatteras Island native began pursing photography in his teens and gained notoriety for his unique style: a marriage of art, surf, and documentary photography by his early 20s. Today, Daniel teaches photography workshops at his studio in Buxton and photographs surfing, wildlife, weddings, portraits and everything in between. He is set to publish his first book, “The Independent Waterman” later this year.

"I feel really honored to receive this award, especially since I'm in the company of so many great artists in Dare County,” said Daniel Pullen. “Thank you to everyone who voted!"

Dare County Arts Council’s People’s Choice exhibit featuring Daniel’s photography will be on display in DCAC’s Gallery in downtown Manteo November 2-30.
