Welcome To Image Hive.
Our partnership stems from a shared passion for the wonder of the world as viewed through the camera lens, and the connection to people that it inspires.
We started ImageHive with a simple idea. Create a space where the best available professional media resources and top local experts come together to provide the local community with the tools and skills it needs to achieve artistic success.
You have the inspirational vision. We have the workspace and the expertise to help you make it a reality.
We’re committed to your creative success.
Play It Forward
Imagine how you’ll feel, to at last see the faces and/or hear the voices of loved ones that’ve been locked up in an obsolete format and left untouched for years.
We’ll free your precious memories from those bygone repositories safely and restore them in your preferred digital format, preserving them for generations to come.
We do it all: film transfer, videotape conversion, 35mmslide/photo scanning, and audio digitization with nearly every format using the best available equipment. It’s all done in our secure A/V lab with just a few highly trained specialists. Customer cataloging is handled systematically to ensure that originals are linked to their digital transfers and both are kept confidential and safe until we personally hand them back to you.
Your Media Multiplied
We produce both large and small duplication orders, and can provide all your printing and packaging too. We’ve been providing high-quality DVD duplication and CD duplication to the Birmingham community since 1984. So if you’re looking for a trusted disc duplicator to copy your DVD or copy your CD with professional quality and focused attention to detail, you’ve found it.
When you come in you’ll meet face-to-face with the person who will ensure your originals are kept confidential and secure from start to finish. And you’ll breathe easy knowing exactly where your master is and that we’ve never lost a single one since we started duplications more than 30 years ago.
Creative Skills Set
Experience the synergy that results when diverse talents are assembled, and expand your artistic skills in our creative workspace.
We believe anyone can learn something new, and we know that everyone who is serious about their talent will never be satisfied with what they already know.
Our workshops are developed with a sharp focus on artistry. Each session, led by an established local expert, offers a unique opportunity to collaborate and network with other motivated artists from the community.
Whether it’s exploring the capabilities of your DSLR camera, lighting techniques, audio principles, or Photoshop skills, we’re here to help you optimize your talents.
Our Space Is Your Space
The genius of photography lives in the mind of the artist, and is unlocked for the rest of the world only by the images themselves. Aside from a camera and a subject, it takes just two things to capture those images: LIGHT and INSIGHT. Both are available to you now.
You’ve got a camera and the creative vision. We’ve got the space where you can bring your concepts to reality. We’re Birmingham’s premiere independent rental photography studio. That means anyone can rent the studio, and although we’re able to provide a photographer if desired, we are equally happy to rent the photo studio unattended.
We’re simply here to help, so you can manage the studio and lights yourself, or we can provide additional insight and assistance as needed for your shoot. Everything’s flexible, so it’s completely up to you.

Concepts Brought To Light
For many photographic designs you need the wisdom, and the experience that comes from extensive work as a professional photographer. Our experts are here to help, so let us capture those challenging photographs for you and manage any photo enhancements or special effects you may need.
Let us know how much or how little you want us to help. We can take your entire project from start to finish, or we can guide you through the process as you do it yourself. We can even take a hands-off approach and just provide the studio and lights.
Whatever level of collaboration you need, we have the resources and the experience to provide it.
Your Vision In Motion
Whether you run a non-profit, a small business, or have a corporate event, you need dependable videography support.
We’re dedicated to doing great work at a reasonable price, and to be a partner you can trust throughout the entire process. Whether your budget is substantial or modest, we know the right approach to maximizing resources without forfeiting quality.
We’re here to help -not to take over your project, so you can expect our unconditional support at all times and our advice only when you want it.
