Gulf Coast photographer Steve White works in black & white and color. He is a self taught photographer and is involved in every aspect of producing his art. Steve began experimenting with photography while attending college in California in the mid 1980's. Upon his return to Mississippi, Steve's photography was inspired to new heights by the beauty of his home state. Influenced by the black & white landscapes of Ansel Adams and Clyde Butcher, Steve spent many hours in the darkroom honing his skill. His early b&w photography earned him the nickname "Ansel Adams of the Gulf Coast".
As with most photographers today, Steve has gone digital and his passion has become his profession. His photography focuses on Mississippi's natural barrier islands and coastal scenes. He prints all of his work on fine art papers & canvas. He also frames & stretches his own canvas works. Steve has won numerous awards and has been featured in shows at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, the George Ohr Museum, and at numerous galleries. He was featured in the May 2008 issue of South Mississippi Living magazine and his work has been used in several publications. Steve's work can be found in private and corporate collections across the U.S. as well as the U.K., including large works at Chevron's Pascagoula Refinery conference rooms, Mississippi Power's District Office lobby & meeting room in Pascagoula, The Biloxi Yacht Club, and Steve's work was recently featured at The Palace Casino & Resort in Biloxi after it's remodel. His large black & whites are in every room, suite, & elevator lobby of the hotel. He is also owner/operator of Integrity Imaging, a fine art reproduction & fine photography printing business.
