Known for his saturated images and keen sense of design and composition, Satterwhite’s work includes action shots, aerial photography, studio miniatures, and major production campaigns in worldwide locations.

“Al Satterwhite’s photos are truly unforgettable. Ultimately they are so many signals at the right time in the right place and in the right proportions which implies that Satterwhite understands extremely well just how modern day photos should be: more than just clear still shots of a moment frozen in time, but rather more a slice of human life. Sometimes aggressive, sometimes tender. Or mellowing. Or surprising. Or tough. Or melancholy. But always directly hitting the softest of all our soft spots: the heart.” —Al Satterwhite: Obsessed Observer
