“I love to find the stories behind faces and places.”


Maxy is a photographer/director/DOP with a visual narrative focus, combining technical skill and a talent for telling emotive stories. This soulful surfer from the North Island of New Zealand is the guy you want to go on the road with. A technician and an artist in equal measure, he’s inquisitive, thoughtful, clued up, hands on and solutions-focused. Simply put, he gets shit done.

Maxy finds beauty in places and faces. A farm boy at heart, he sees human nature and Mother Nature as being innately intertwined.

Maxy’s driving motivation is having the potential power to touch others with his film and photography. You could say he’s got his feet firmly on the ground while at the same time looking at the stars.


"I’ve shot with Maxy across the world and under some incredibly challenging situations. He has always found solutions and produced results beyond expectations. His effortless technical ability and eye for a beautiful frame make capturing the authentic spirit of the people and places he visits seem easy.”

- Mick Stalker, Senior Creative Director | TBWA
