He received his elder brother Henry Springer (1805-1867), architect who was taught architectural drawing and perspective.
He studied, among other Jacobus van der Stok (1795-1864) Hendrik Gerrit ten Cate (1803-1856) and Kaspar Karsen (1810-1896). Soon made the painter himself to making cityscapes. He lived most of his life in Amsterdam, but traveled to the Netherlands by pencil sketches.
