Many celebrity photographs will be on display at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Center beginning on September 13 during “John White Celebrity Photo Show & Silent Auction”.
For more than two decades John White was a celebrity photographer, snapping photos for magazines and media outlets around the world. During this time, he was published by the “Hollywood North” page in the Toronto Sun, he contributed to the Pacific Coast News and owned “Toronto’s Celebrity & Event Blog.” Now that John has returned to his roots, he is a professional photographer capturing people’s special moments, like their weddings, family portraits, and executive events.
“Hopping between Toronto, New York, Miami, Las Vegas… It was a little bit like being the Rolling Stones in the 70’s. I was within the peak of my industry. From snapping celebs on the beach to black-tie red-carpet parties, I truly enjoyed the ride. Now, only a few years of being out of the world of paparazzi, it seems like a lifetime ago,” says White, reminiscing of the past “It is a true honour to showcase some of my work in an area where I grew up”
