Steve Dinberg

Steven Dinberg Photography is the culmination of over 30 years of professional photographic
experiences. Steve’s interest in photography started with a Brownie Hawkeye as he would strive to
capture perfect snapshots of childlike images. He has since continued his quest to capture lasting
impressions as he made his career with commercial, sports and fine art photography and evolved
from developing in darkrooms to the latest in photography technology. Along the way, Steve has
hung out of airplanes over Sydney Harbor at 7000 feet to add perspective to experimental aircraft as
well as covered almost every sporting event. Steve was fortunate enough to be the photographer of
the legendary golfer Payne Stewart, and produced the now famous Lithograph from Payne’s last
victory at the 1999 U.S. Open. from those images produced the “Tribute To A Champion” lithograph.
Steve uses his lens to capture the essence of his subjects at just the right moment, and through that
lens developed a strong focus on fine art.
