Enjoy life to the fullest – create

In 2000, to improve his skills and knowledge in the visual arts, Maxim traveled to New York, where art lovers and connoisseurs awarded him awards in photography, graphic design and fine art. Adapting quickly and successfully exploring the innovative age of digital photography, 3D art and creative retouching, Maxim grew into a great photographer and art director, pushing the boundaries of creative imagery and concepts.

Maxime expanded his talents in advertising and grew into an extraordinary commercial photographer at the age of 27 while working at Mercedes-Benz America. This opportunity is an excellent gateway to all the equipment a photographer can dream of, as well as challenging and unique projects such as runway photography, automotive photography, haute couture, red carpet and lifestyle photography, to name a few.

In 2009, Maxim moved to Los Angeles to start his own design studio. He works under some innovative contracts using state-of-the-art technology, such as fusing 3D virtual sets with stereoscopic capture and real-time rendering into a “smart stage”

at Occidental Studios, Inc. Other work includes contracting with the agency David & Goliath to produce artwork for the King Kong 360 event, Kia Motors and the Monte Carlo Hotel. Maxim holds a master’s degree in Innovation and Entrepreneurship from the UCI Paul Merage School of Business. He continued to nurture his immense passion for creativity and co-founded the American Model Academy to expand his influence in the fashion photography and modeling industries.

Maxim’s life role models are Anie Lubovitch, Simon Sinek, author of Start with Why, and Richard Branson, a British business magnate, investor, author and adventurer with 400 businesses/companies.
