"As an artist, Eliot creates images that sing with intimacy and spontaneity. They go beyond merely recording an event. They reveal it's story, weaving together the emotions, gestures, and smiles of all the characters into one masterful tapestry."

Eliot Holtzman is a singular kind of photographer. His studio, hidden by trees in residential San Rafael, is modern and state-of-the-art, but at the same time unassuming, even comfortable. Against its walls, portraits of mothers and their smiling babies, and of brides in all their finery, lean next to photos of the rich and famous. They too are quietly discovering that the man with the mellifluous voice and ready humor is a genius behind the lens, at once precise in his technique but relaxed in his approach. As a testament to his sense of purpose, Holtzman will travel anywhere to cover a wedding, taking a prodigious 2000-3000 pictures to catch each moment, grand or small. But as an artist, he creates images that sing with intimacy and spontaneity. They go beyond merely recording an event. They reveal its story, weaving together the emotions, smiles, and gestures of all the characters into one masterful tapestry.
