Franz Steiner, Co-Founder of Steiner Creative, Inc., is an LA based photographer and concept artist that creates dynamic imagery that get brand ideas and products noticed, seen and sold.
In his early career as a 3D artist, Steiner pioneered topics of A.I., virtual reality and robotics with his first photo collection and six-figure launch on Getty. This catapulted him into global campaign work as a master digital artist for Google, Beats by Dre, and Apple ads, and specialized projects like NBA 2K16 covers of Stephen Curry, James Harden, Anthony Davis and Michael Jordan.
While capturing Venice Beach’s fitness culture, Steiner released his latest collection, Dogtown Diary. It garnered a licensing deal with the City of Los Angeles for permission to include his work in the city’s bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics Games in LA. Today, Steiner works closely with cult fitness brands like UK’s Gymshark and Varley Activewear on campaigns and rebranding efforts. Steiner’s work has been featured in Ted Talk Paris, NY Magazine, The Guardian, Daily Mail UK, PopSugar and Stern Magazine Germany to name a few.
Franz is available for interviews on branding, photo trends and creative insights. He enjoys surfing and traveling with his family when he’s not shooting. His earliest photo collection is still available at www.gettyimages.com/photos/blutgruppe.
What’s Steiner Creative, Inc.?
It’s the creative production house that Franz Steiner Photography operates from. Where we develop attention-grabbing ideas and execute them into photography, video and GIFs and turn them into commercial-grade content that makes you money and gets your customers fanning-out over you. We'll meet you wherever you are in the production phase - beginning, middle or end - to bring strategic vision and aesthetic sensibility to your next campaign. We work thoughtfully to execute your vision and make your customers say “I need that- yesterday!”.
We’re a denim-wearing husband-wife team otherwise known as Franz + Sally. Franz leads the creative, Sally leads our production. Together we have a combined 30 years experience in the creative fields developing and managing visual content across advertising, entertainment and beauty. In that time, we’ve made great relationships with specialists who we lean on for complex projects rather than carrying an expensive full time staff. It means we’ll always find the most suitable team for every working budget without sacrificing quality.
We’re happy to call Optimist Studios our home base and creative playground. This versatile collaborative space features four stages that range from 6,000 SQ FT to 850 SQ FT, Wall White Cyc's, and additional locations to meet the needs of any production.
