Eliot has been looking through a camera lens since he was fourteen and has established himself as one of the Bay Area's finest portrait and event photographers. He received a fine arts degree from the San Francisco Art Institute and has studied with some of the country's most renown photographers, Ansel Adams and Sally Mann among them. He serves on the Board of Directors of both Youth in Arts as well as Marin Primary and Middle School. Eliot also donates his services to non-profit projects close to his heart. He and his wife Margot Limm-Holtzman; their children, Jake, Kaiya, and Zoe; and Addie, the Leonberger live in San Rafael, California
Over the years, Eliot has assembled a dedicated staff who bring their own talents and vision to the photographing, finishing, and framing of our work.
We're always excited about the artistic possibilities of a new project. You'll sense our enthusiasm and appreciate our experience. The power of a snapshot lies in its realness. Usually taken by someone who knows the subject well, the unguarded personality of the subject comes through. After years of picture taking, we're able to capture the same honest expressions only in a beautiful portrait where all the elements—light, color, body language, and composition come together.
Because we have an in-house production staff, we can offer start-to-finish services. By doing much of the finish work in our studio, we're able to dwell on all the details. We're masters of archival black & white printing as well as custom framing. We offer fine-art quality presentations ranging from albums and portfolio boxes to desk frames, wall composites, and larger wall portraits.
