Max

Commercial photographer, co-founder of Doberman Studio. Instructor at Photigy.com

Max has started his photography in high school. He’s been shooting black and white and then color film. It was sort of a background hobby. After graduation, he had worked for a product package design studio for about 10 years before he joined Doberman. It was the place where he first met professional product photographers. Among other things he has been part of food photography, splash photography, etc. That was a truly invaluable experience. He came to Doberman with the idea to expand it to fully integrated creative and production studio. Together Max and Ilya turned photography and retouching into something bigger: casting, stylists, makeup artists, shooting logistics, 3D graphics.
