ASMP Member Spotlight
Featuring Richard Steinberger
Richard’s love for photography is deeply rooted in his childhood. Although his father worked as a mining engineer in Eschweiler, Germany, he also created images of Europe’s most beautiful places, from the Italian Dolomites and Austrian Alps to the Italian Mediterranean coast.
The father’s passion became the son’s dream. At age 17, Richard decided the best way to become a professional photographer would be to move overseas and get a college education in America. He immigrated first to Huntington, West Virginia, where he attended his senior year of high school; after graduation, he moved to Florida and attended the Photography Institute at Daytona State College.
After college, Richard continued his education and further developed his craft with several acclaimed Florida-based photographers. He immersed himself in architectural, hospitality and marine photography and went on to form his own business in 2002. He operated Richard Steinberger Photography in Door County, Wisconsin, and Denver, Colorado, before relocating to Beaufort, South Carolina, in 2020.
