Jim and Melissa of Apple Canyon Designs.

What We do

We are a one-stop shop for web design, commercial photography and video. 

One of our favorite parts of our job is learning everything we can about your business and your customers so we can create photos, video and websites that fit your needs, speak to your customers, and show your business the way you want it to be seen.

We are passionate about organic food and products in our own life, so we love working with companies in the natural foods and products industries, from family farms to high-end organic cosmetic companies. 

Based in Joshua Tree, California, we serve businesses in the High Desert, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Coachella Valley, Inland Empire and beyond—we even work with companies on the East Coast and overseas. 

Visit our web, photo, and video pages to learn more about our process, or stop by our portfolio for examples of our work.

If you have a project you’d like to talk to us about, please get in touch.
