Max was born in the spring of 1976 and has lived in the Pacific Northwest ever since. The son of two professors, Max has naturally shied away
from educational endeavors throughout his life. Despite a number of missed classes and hastily-written, last-minute papers, he somehow managed
to come away from the University of Washington with some semblance of a degree.
For the last decade, Max has been photographing wildlife, travel and sports subjects professionally. He has been a multiple finalist in the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, and his work has appeared in such publications as Africa Geographic and ESPN the Magazine. He also covers University of Washington athletics near his home in the Seattle area.
Since 2003, Max has traveled to Borneo, Hong Kong, Peru, Bolivia, South Africa, Patagonia, the Great Bear Rainforest in Canada, China, Belgium & Holland, Russia, Spain, Yellowstone (a couple times per year),
New Zealand (twice), Fiji, Costa Rica (x4), Greece, the
UK (twice), Ecuador, Sweden, Rwanda and Tanzania. See more about these journeys in the Travel Section.
What's next? Max is leading Costa Rica and Yellowstone photo tours this winter and spring.
Max teaches introductory photo classes in the Seattle area and is leading photo workshops and tours both in the Pacific Northwest and overseas. Click here to learn more about Max's workshops and tours or contact Max about arranging a private tour.
