Max's work spans a variety of subjects that include: architecture and interiors, advertising, fine art, travel to still life and stock.

His first priority is to satisfy his clients' needs in each photographic assignment. He is pleasant and easy to work with and goes the extra mile to achieve the set goal. He is experienced and welcomes the challenge and opportunity to resolve problems.

In addition to assignment work , he photographs what he responds to and believes that "categorizing sets boundaries. Versatility opens the heart and mind to endless expressive possibilities..." His photographs suggest a search for harmony in a world of chaos. He feels inspired in the momentary culmination of the inner and outer worlds where fusion occurs to and fro in variable proportions.

His work has appeared in many magazines from Interior Design, Time, Town and Country, American Style, Times Photo Journal of India, Home and Hemisphere among others.

Max received his BA from Queens College with a minor in French Literature and his AAS in Photography from FIT. He is currently a Professor at The Fashion Institute of Technology where he teaches photography.
