Wynton is a Photographer

Embarking his journey on photography as a measly hobby, Wynton graduated in arts from Georgia’s Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta, and pursued his career as a professional photographer.
The Atlanta-based artist maintains a studio where he captures portraits, landscapes, and photographs of everyday objects.
While he gives key emphasis to fine arts photography, Harvey’s diversity in photography is evident throughout every work of his.
All of Harvey’s work demonstrates an aesthetic yet luxuriously appealing ambiance.
He draws inspiration from minimalist design, Victorian-era art, and African cultures and thrives to show the world not only what he sees but also how he sees it.

“Steve Harvey’s son Wynton Harvey’s list of things he won’t do” Steve Harvey and his son Wynton Harvey genuinely enjoy each other’s company.
The father-son duo may be seen in several videos of Steve’s show and we can witness how close they are.
In one of those, we can catch a glimpse of a deep father and son moment where they talk about the list of things Wynton won’t do. Although Steve made his son write a ton on the list, Wynton mentioned a few in the video:
- No stealing
- No drinking and driving
- Staying out of crimes (No crimes that’s the goal)
- Don’t get a girl pregnant (only probably when he’s 30)
- Not going to jail
While Steve claimed he’d turn Wynton’s room into a cigar lounge after he had moved out, Wynton knows his dad’s going to miss him.
Wynton’s Surprise Gift for Steve on Father’s day
Harvey’s father-son duo were at it again on the “Steve’s show” on Father’s day. Wynton’s appearance on the show itself was a surprise to his dad on that day.
The young Harvey handed a beautiful pair of Tom Ford shoes as a Father’s day gift to his dad, although the tabs were on his dad’s account to Steve’s surprise.
The more meaningful gift, however, was a lovely framed picture of the two together with the words engraved as “Me and you ‘till the wheels fall off”.
Wynton thanked his dad for how he was always there for him and helping him to keep going all these years.
He planned on hanging the picture in his dorm room. Both of them became emotional with teary eyes at the end of their love for each other.
Wynton Harvey Received his car training from his father
The famous comedian and all-round entertainer gave his son, Wynton, and daughter, Lori fun car training.
Long story short, Steve gave some very fundamental car-driving points to his kids, which we all can pick from.
- First thing first, put on your seat belt.
- Hands-on the wheel where? – 10 and 2. (Helps you handle the vehicle)
- The most important thing in driving – the BREAK, the BREAK, the BREAK.
- Key to parking- the BREAK again.
The father Harvey also reminded the kids that if they text and drive, they lose driving for up to 3 years.
However, he added an additional Harvey punishment, which was “one year of solitary confinement chained up in the basement, next to the washing machine.”
Steve Reveals Wynton Harvey is following his father’s steps
Steve often mentions his youngest, Wynton in his talks. On his show, Harvey’s dad revealed how Wynton followed his father’s steps.
He disclosed how his youngest wanted to hang out with his sister, Lori, and her friends and how he was literally “ewed” by Lori’s friends those days.
He assured Wynton that all would change in time. Now, Wynton was 6’1 and a fashionista. How the tables turned, Lori’s friends now asked how Wynton was doing.
Steve then said,” Them boys that you’ve been looking at, they were nothing. Start having their swag, they look good. Wynton just takes after his dad.
Wynton’s College Gadget
On “Just one more thing” – the College edition of Steve’s show, the college-bound Harvey’s join their dad to try out some college gadgets.
They showcased two fun gadgets; Rollie and Hankie Pocketbook.
Lori demonstrated making an egg with Rollie, which could make cooking eggs in the dorm quick and easy, and also promised to cook pizza rolls and burritos.
Wynton exhibited the Hankie Pocketbook “to suit your suit”, which was a notepad that looked like a pocket square.
Steve Harvey had a huge influence on Wynton’s charisma. He picked up a great deal from his famous, powerful, and humorous dad.
Wynton Harvey is a loved child of Steve, as his father never fails to show his love and support towards his kids. Steve has always shown himself as a wonderful parent and has a great relationship with Wynton.
Despite the messy divorce between his father and his biological mother in his younger days, Steve has grown into a fine man and also never fails to show his love, respect, and gratitude to his father.
