Husband-and-wife team Richard and Heather Steinberger formed Timberline Media LLC in January 2012 to handle a new direction in their creative lives: fine art photography and independent book publishing projects. Their mission is a simple one: to capture familiar subjects in an unfamiliar way, revealing the beauty that often resides in the most unexpected places.
Richard Steinberger, Director of Photography
Richard has been a professional commercial and editorial photographer for 20 years. He founded his full-service advertising and editorial photography business in 2002, and since then, he has developed a prominent clientele in the recreational boating, travel/leisure and architectural markets. His editorial work has appeared in a variety of internationally circulated magazines — including Smart Money, Gafencu Men, Boating and Power & Motoryacht — and his fine-art images have been featured in juried and solo art exhibitions. Steinberger lives with his wife, Heather, and daughter in Bailey, Colorado.
