Paul Nurnberg, a Savannah, GA and Beaufort, SC based photographer, specializes in architectural and lifestyle advertising photography. He also shoots a variety of other subjects including people, products, food, nature and travel. Paul has been a professional photographer for more than 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 and art directors 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.
Paul feels it is important to be involved in his photographic and local communities. He recently served as the president of the South Carolina chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP/SC), where he had previously served on the board for four years. Paul recently finished 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 has recently served as the president of the Photography Club of Beaufort.
He enjoys teaching others about photography and enjoys the classes he holds through both his studio and a community arts organization called ARTworks. Paul also has taught at the Technical College of the Lowcountry.
Paul was born in the mid-west, grew up in Elmira, a small city in upstate New York, and has lived in a variety of places on the east coast, ranging from Boston,MA to Washington, NC, to Savannah, GA. He now lives in Beaufort, South Carolina with his wife and several cats. He likes being outdoors, where he enjoys paddling, biking and hiking. He travels frequently and, of course, makes lots of images while on the go.
