Our readers would love to get to know you more Max. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?

Max, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I always wanted something unusual, beautiful.
And I was looking for it, tried it. I began my journey from the model and immediately realized that I was not interested, I did not participate in the process of creation and began to look at myself a camera. At that moment I remembered that since my childhood I did not like to be photographed and I liked to take pictures. So it all started
Who is your inspiration in life Max? How do you keep inspired?
I look at the works of other photographers that I admire, and also I watch interesting movies, there are still some things but these are the 2 main points that make me get inspired again and again
We all make mistakes Max, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer , you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Max ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
I dont take a large number of clients if I believe that I cant manage or lose quality while this is reasonable, because I'm a perfectionist
Please tell us Max, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?
Moments when you want to organize a master class or workshop, it does not matter your own or the invited photographer that you like - at this time you need to be very organized, because at the same time a huge number of people are involved - both trainees and assistants - you do not have to miss anything
Max, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
As an option I can remember the case with a colleague when I invited to the master class and the photographer doubted whether it was worth going to him at all, whether it would be interesting, useful, whether she would take anything from him. I tried to objectively tell what could be in the master class and how its worldview would change and gave a choice. As a result, after the completion of the master class, she was very happy and thanked me for what I explained and she agreed to come, and if she did not visit, she would have regretted
Max please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
at the moment its a award winning in international contest VIPA 2016 Fashion photographer of the year and judjing in VIPA 2017
Max, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
Of course it's exciting to shoot the scene and it's difficult to select the footage - if everything turned out well, it was perfect then what to choose - it takes time and the crew wants the result as soon as possible
What advice would you give to the people who wants to be successful as a Photographer?
Do not listen to anyone who you do not want to be like - I think this is one of the most important advice... if you want to get advice then ask them who you want to be like, what you are aiming at
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?
Yes, of course, I'm interested in collaboration with retouchers, digital artists, fashion brands
