In 1980, Steve Whittaker decided to combine his educational and practical background in architecture, advertising, graphic design, and photography. He then opened his first studio with a focus on architectural and interior photography. Aerial assignments soon followed. Whittaker Photography has grown to include local, regional and national assignments.

Steve Whittaker’s award winning work has appeared in publications such as Architectural Digest, Forbes, Time Magazine, Contract Magazine, Architectural Record, Photo District News, and many more.
