Amiran White

I was born and raised in the United Kingdom, but began my photojournalism career in North America stringing for The Associated Press in Portland, Ore. From there I spent 10-years working as a staff photographer on various daily newspapers in Oregon, Pennsylvania and New Mexico before freelancing as a photojournalist.

I have won a variety of awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, Associated Press, World Press, National Press Photographers' Association, Editor & Publisher and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. I have also earned the Community Awareness Award from Photographer of the Year International and the Golden Light Award for my documentary work. Most recently, I was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Deeper Perspective category of the International Photography Awards, and won a first place with the Sony World Photography Awards.
