White uses photography as a way of deepening a lifelong relationship with nature, taking a second and third look at the flora, fauna, and natural places we visit. He has won awards for his photographs locally at Selby Gardens, as well as at arts organizations in New England. He teaches classes in connecting to nature through photography, and has been involved with a variety of environmental and nature organizations including the Nature Conservancy, the Long Island Soundkeeper, and Around the Bend Nature Tours. Currently, you can find him leading hikes to Deep Hole and other destinations at Myakka River State Park where he has been a long-time volunteer. Learn more about the artist at www.steve-white.com.
