- Ansel Adams

My name is Maksim and I believe that art celebrates what it means to be human.

There is so much in life that is worth documenting so that we can reflect, share, and relive our most prized moments and accomplishments. It's this belief that led me to photography and it's what continues to drive my approach to image-making.

For over a decade, I have specialized in preserving memories, capturing love, and setting a standard for how my subjects experience being in front of the camera. 

As an outgoing individual, I am very interested in people, personalities, stories, and the ways in which people identify with who they are. Those in front of my camera can always expect to feel comfortable when working with me, because to me it is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.
