Meet The Team


Thank you for visiting our webpage!  Elevated Studios is based out of Truckee, California and is owned and operated by Randy and Lindsey Mertl.  We are both Truckee-Tahoe Locals, and have lived in the area for over 30 years.  

Randy is our drone specialist who is FAA Part 107 Certified, and is especially passionate about video editing and aerial photography.  When he is not working, Randy can be found building and tuning his own drone fleet and making FPV (First Person Viewer) News segments for YouTube.  He is also a talented graphic designer who assists with his parents' gift shop locally.

Lindsey is our customer relations specialist.  She is passionate about photography and music.  She plays three instruments and attended CSU, Chico for Music for seven years.  She is diligent and works tirelessly to provide a quality product and meet our customer's individual needs.  

At Elevated Studios we have a passion for excellence and an eye for detail that can be seen in our photos and videos.  We pride ourselves on creating the best images that we can, while still reflecting the true nature of the subject.  We offer a wide variety of quality photo and video services perfect for people who need to showcase their homes for sale, vacation rentals, or ski leases.  We can also update headshots for business cards by utilizing our green screen.  We only use high quality equipment and we are especially excited to showcase our steady cam, cinematography drone and Mavic PRO drone which shoots in 4K.  The cinematography drone offers a one-of-a-kind perspective and is safe to fly indoors.  This drone is custom built and professionally piloted.  It is unique to our company.

We are excited to meet you and hear about your project!  Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
