Orange County Designer Source | The Artistic Photography of Peter Treiber
When we look back on Treiber's history, it is easy to see why his work is so compelling. His career has taken him on an impressive journey through a series of professional photography positions, endless projects, and a heavy peppering of fine art exhibits. Peter first started taking photos in high school when he was given his first camera: a hand-me-down Rollicord, He discovered a love for creating beautiful images that would last his entire lifetime. After briefly studying painting, a series of events led him to become studio assistant in New York for advertising photographer Hobart Baker, the inventor of front projection. In the meantime, he earned an associates degree in Advertising Design at the State University of New York, then later a bachelor of fine art degree in Photography from the Art Center College of Design in California. All of this laid the foundation for the next ten years at NYC Studios where he worked in several positions, including Chief Photographer and Manager of Communications Services at International Nickel. He then spent five years as staff advertising photographer for Bethlehem Steel Corporation. When the BSC closed in 1982, he opened his own photography studio, Peter Treiber Photogaphy, where he continues to shoot commercial photography assignments and fine art projects to this day. In his spare time, he enjoys sailing and growing orchids. He is currenly represented by OCDesignerSource.com.
