Al Satterwhite

Al Satterwhite was still in high school when he started work as a photographer at a major daily newspaper in Florida, covering big stories across the Southeast. After working for a year as the Governor of Florida's personal photographer, he embarked on a celebrated freelance career. Over the decade that followed, Satterwhite worked on assignments for almost every major magazine, including Life, Look, Newsweek, People, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, Time, and Travel & Leisure. In 1980 he moved to New York City to form his own production company and focus on advertising. For the next 15 years he undertook a wide range of national and international advertising work, becoming recognised for his saturated colour images, and for his keen design and compositional sense. He now lectures and holds workshops around the US. 

His photographic prints are in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Houston Fine Art Museum, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, George Eastman House, The Polaroid Collection, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture, as well as in numerous private collections. In recent years he has focused attention on producing books of his work. 

Satterwhite lives in New York City with his wife and two Zen masters, both cats.
