James White (www.artmixphotography.com) — After completing his studies at Art Institute of Chicago where his primary training was history and theory of photography, James White moved to Italy to begin his career. While in Italy, White had the opportunity to teach photography at an American university program in Florence. During his tenure, he taught himself the technical side of photography in order to better educate his students. After teaching, White relocated to New York to shoot fashion and it was there that he launched his career in celebrity portraiture and is now regarded as one of the hottest celebrity photographers in the world.
White’s work is inherently perfect for Hollywood, combining beauty, sexiness and incredible lighting to create images that are seductive. His photos have graced the pages of magazines all around the world including but not limited to GQ, Glamour, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Flaunt, Elle, and Rolling Stone.
