Sometimes life throws you curveballs, sends you on wild goose chases, and puts you in formidable & daunting situations.  But for those of us fortunate enough to make it through somewhat unscathed, you find that all those twists, turns, and total rollovers, really did drop you right where you are meant to be.  That's where we are now - elixir images.  Oh, and if life hands you lemons, be sure to grab your camera and get a really spectacular close up of them.  

We hate to do it.  Brag that is. But, we’re going to do it anyway.  We have 35+ years of corporate business, training & operations experience AND have multiple documentary & short film cinematography + producing nominations & wins including our girl Emmy.  

We wake up each day, eager to help build & transform the next story through all mediums of imagery. 

Let us help you tell your unique story
