Professional Commercial Photography

Nurnberg Photography is owned by Paul Nurnberg, a Savannah, GA and Beaufort, SC based professional photographer. Paul specializes in architectural and lifestyle advertising photography as well as food photography and product photography. He also shoots a variety of other subjects including nature and travel. Paul has been a professional commercial photographer for over 20 years, after graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology. He is equally at home working in the studio or on location. He has photographed on mountains and swamps, in executive offices, fancy restaurants, large industrial plants, paper mills and in a variety of aircraft.


Paul’s strength is collaborating with designers, art directors, and other creatives to get the best possible images for the assignment. He’s easy to work with and doesn’t carry a big ego to get in the way of producing great work. He also enjoys shooting editorial, where he gets to be on his own to find the best solutions for the assignments. Paul is also beginning to explore the realm of video capture.

Committed to Craft and Community

Paul is highly involved in both photographic and local communities. He recently served as the president of the South Carolina chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP/SC), after serving on the board for four years. Paul also served a two year term as national secretary for the American Photographic Artists. A founder of GreenDrinks Beaufort, Paul also volunteers for civic and environmental organizations and was previously the president of the Photography Club of Beaufort. He enjoys teaching others about photography and has taught classes through his studio, the local ARTworks organization, and the Technical College of the Lowcountry.
