"Real Life Portrature"

At Elias Photography, we are proud to have been of service to the Whittier Community for over 30 years. We offer the following services:

Family and Individual Portraits

Capture moments of true life with your family: See yourself in a whole new way. We strive to create realistic photos, but also take into consideration concerns about your appearance. The best angles and compositions will have you looking just like you do on your best days! We professionally mount all our prints and apply our own clear, protective lacquer finish, ready for framing. Our images are best displayed without glass, making them lightweight and safer in your home. 

Be sure to have a look at the "Learn More" page, which has a ton of information about our services.

Other Products and Services


A Series of original images that illustrate a virtually perfect moment in your life, bound together in a leather covered album. These are large albums with stiff pages made from finished photographs. 


If you are considering buying artwork for your home,  you should give us a call. Our photography is "gallery quality." Imagine unique images created just for you, and the subject matter is you, your family members or images of and around your home. You can get images in standard or custom sizes. We can get beautiful custom frames selected from hundreds of frame samples. We can also loan prints for various purposes.

Commercial Photography

We focus on the best that reality has to offer when it comes to your business. If you manufacture machines, we show people using the them. If you create food, the images will make the viewer hungry. If you need a business card, then we create images that will entice your clientele. 

Copy and Restoration

Old photographs can be brought back to life. Bring your old, torn and scratched photos to us and we can clean them up and make new prints. Give us a call for a restoration quote or if you have problem images that need more work than your local lab can offer. We must see what you have before we can give you an accurate quote.

Photography Workshops

Learn the "Elias Method of Photography", with a focus on understanding how images can be captured with natural light, using the even simplest of cameras (digital or film).Call us to get on our sign-up list. (Or click on the e-mail sign up list for ShopWhittier and sign up for the Elias Photography mail list). This workshop is designed for beginning and intermediate amateurs and those simply curious about Rick's unique approach to portrait photography.

We also have plans in the works for additional photography workshops in addition to workshops, classes and lectures on many other topics.


If you are a charity having a local fund raising event, give us a call. We try to help when we can. Our most common donation is a gift certificate for a portrait session and an 11x14 print. These certificates commonly generate several hundred dollars in funds.
