From Humble Beginnings To World Class Hollywood Premieres
Originally conceived as a firm that would embrace the explosive desktop video revolution back in the late 90’s, Richter Studios has emerged as a leading creative boutique in the midwest. Ideally located in Chicago’s dynamic West Loop, it has earned a solid reputation for its award-winning creative with Brand Films, Commercials and Corporate Video Productions.
Founded in 1997, the company now has its own state-of-the art studio and shoots exclusively with the world’s finest motion picture gear, including the RED One MX, EPIC, ARRI Alexa, and Phantom cameras. Additionally, the company has also emerged as a leader in the still photography field, often shooting with Hasselblads to achieve pristine imagery. This commitment to superb craftsmanship has served the company well, as demand for its services has led to its cinematography and photography teams shooting in 30 states and 12 countries to date.
Having won over 50 nationally recognized creative awards, the company has partnered with dozens of Fortune 500 firms for a variety of initiatives, including serving as the lead creative on a variety of major campaigns, collaborating with nationwide celebrities, historic figures and partnering with some of most respected CEO’s in America.
According to President Jeremy Richter, the secret to the company’s success has been fairly straightforward: “It’s not how many people you have,” stated Richter. “It’s how many great people you have. We have a world-class team at Richter Studios that is committed to superb craftsmanship. This fundamental approach is why we have shot from on top of the Trump Tower, underneath the arches of the Eiffel Tower and have interviewed some of the most influential CEO’s and figures on the planet. Clients know when they hire us they are hiring a great team.”
In addition to its highly regarded motion and still image services, Richter Studios also provides an integrated suite of creative and technical services as well. As most of the company’s content often ends up on the web in one form or another, it also specializes in front-end design and back-end development services. As with its other offerings, the commitment to superb craftsmanship in these areas has remained the same.
“It’s not how many people you have, it’s how many great people you have. We have a world-class team at Richter Studios that is committed to superb craftmanship.”

Maintaining its commitment to outstanding craftsmanship is an ongoing theme at Richter Studios but developing great client partnerships is equally important. “Clients hire Richter Studios because we have a proven ROI track record,” remarked CEO David Richter. “We fully recognize that the only way to enjoy what we do and grow our company is by establishing great partnerships with our clients. Sometimes that can mean challenging them in certain areas and getting them to reassess. Over time, clients begin to respect this and see its value. At the end of the day, its about trust and a true collaborative partnership always translates into excellence. This approach has served our clients and us well over the years and has led to some very memorable creative efforts.”
