I'm Max, a creative Nightowl with a passion for adventures, photography, design, tech and innovation.
My journey in photography started over 7 years ago during solo travels in Europe. Originally rooted in wedding photography, I started to experiment with light and more experimental techniques while I lived in Australia. Since then, night photography has been my biggest passion and creative outlet. I like to capture perspectives and details easily overlooked, by shining a different light on extraordinary subjects and urban nightlife.
I was ranked among the Top 200 Urban Landscape Photographers and Top 100 German Photographers by the 35Awards in 2022. My work has been viewed over 60 million times solely on Unsplash and my photos have been featured on TEDxMelbourne, Medium, Towards Data Science, Heise Online, BuzzFeed, countless YouTube videos, podcast and album covers.
Currently, I am finishing my double master degree in Innovation Management, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability in Warsaw. I am available for portraits, event, product and business photography across Poland and Germany.

“Working with Max was very uncomplicated and pleasant, from the initial exchange to post-processing, and the result was top. During the shoot itself, we felt very comfortable and were instructed charmingly.
We think the photos speak for themselves: it is obvious that a competent photographer with the best equipment is at work here, who has also found a very unique visual language. You can also trust Max when it comes to videos. We are more than happy with the cooperation and can only warmly recommend Max!”
