Max is an Emmy®-Award winning cinematographer based out of Berlin. He graduated from the German Film and Television Academy of Berlin (DFFB) and held a scholarship at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).
Max shot numerous international documentaries and European feature fiction movies. His works were short listed for the Oscars, won Emmy®-Awards and the prestigious Critic’s Week in Cannes. His collaborators reach from Academy Award winner Louie Psihoyos to Emmy®-Award winner Matthew Heineman.
He is home to both environments - be it large, controlled film sets or chaotic, unpredictable real life scenarios with mini crews. In shaping strong visuals of a story driven character and creating an almost fictional feel for doc-style subjects you will find some of his biggest assets. His curiosity never wears away especially when trying out new styles for shorter formats such as commercials and music videos.
