About Max

I specialize in world travel photography. Most of the pictures displayed on my website can be purchased as digital files – please read the information on the Purchase page. I am active on various social media, and can be followed via the links on this site.


I spent my childhood in Russia and Uzbekistan, and studied and worked in the US before moving to Germany, where I am based now. I am passionate about world travel, with a particular fascination for visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites and National Parks worldwide. In addition, I've been a devout pilgrim of the Way of St James since I first walked it in 2005, and I set out on the Camino de Santiago – on new and already-trodden routes alike – once or twice every year.
