Aidan Cullen Is a photographer and creative director out of Los Angeles, California. He’s responsible for a lot of your favorite artists creative work, specifically the A$ap Mob, Omar Apollo, and Trippie Redd.

This interview is different from the others in the sense that I myself have had the pleasure of watching Aiden’s “glow up” for lack of better words. As a long-time friend from my perspective, I watched someone beat the odds every day with no sweat.

For as long as I can remember, Aidan has dedicated his time and effort to his craft, easily side stepping critics, self- doubt, and health issues. His recent success is really just beginning and as it continues his story will long be shared as a motivational gem for the up-and-coming entrepreneur.

Check out our interview with him below.


 1. Who are you? What do you do? Where are you from?

I’m Aidan Cullen. I’m a photographer and directer. I’m from LA, specifically Santa Monica and Venice.

2. What was the turning point in your career? Where were you before that?

I honestly don’t think I’ve had one specific turning point in my career. It took about 4 years of really hard work to “blow up over night.” One thing that definitely was a turning point was shooting my first global commercial campaign for Converse when I was 17.

3. How has your life experience shaped you?

I went through a lot of intense health issues at a young age and I think it completely changed my outlook on life. I started to follow my dreams a lot faster and didn’t take no for an answer. It definitely humbled me a lot. That is one of the biggest examples of my life experience shaping me.

4. How do you practice awareness? How do you maintain your best self and manage your day to day experiences?

Oh man this is something I’m trying to work on now. I try to work out or meditate at some point in the day to calm me down. Before I go to sleep I always make lists of things I need to do and things I want to accomplish. That helps manage my awareness on my life sometimes.

5. What are some important issues you’d like to shed light on? How would you do it?

I’d like to shine light on big companies or artists trusting young creatives and crediting and paying them correctly rather than exploiting them.
