Max is a fine artist in his mind, heart and spirit.  He has a keen ability to see beyond the surface and allows a subject of his art or photography to release its innate nature.  Then he captures them with such ease and grace.  His photography communicates the pure essence of subjects.  By doing so, he inspires viewers’s heart and provoke their mind.  He delivers what true art is meant to be.  Me and my lover are honored to be seen through Max’s eyes!

My company has used Max for our professional group and headshots. His attention to detail made the process easy and on top of that FUN! We also recruited him for our annual charity Pictures with Santa. He utilized the small space and the fast paced environment with class. On top of that the pictures were fantastic and made our clients happy.

Max Woltman is my lifetime photographer. He has documented many parts of my life, from my early years with my husband to our engagement photos to our wedding and finally my professional headshots. We are now having Max do family portraits with my husband and his family from Washington state. I don’t consider myself very photogenic but Max works magic and I always love his results. He makes me look good, and he is very professional, but also knows how to bring out the fun in his subjects. Max is amazing. You will never be disappointed in his results. Max, to me, means PHOTOGRAPHY!

-Jennifer Gee

Max is not only professional, but fun. He has a way of putting you at ease and bringing out the inner model in who ever he shoots. Even in with an impromptu shoot, in a spare room, he captured photo after photo that made our little family look like the family hat come with the picture frame.

-Nikki Katalanos

Max is incredibly deft at bringing out the best shots with people who are usually uncomfortable in front of a camera. He is somehow able to impart his own inviting charisma to his subjects, and capture their best side. SO much more than just a camera operator!

-Brock Hardy

Max is a passionate photographer who is dedicated in capturing the perfect image. Max works is easy to talk to and easy to open up to which makes working with him fun and entertaining. The best shots are always better when there is good communication between the model and photographer and Max excels at creating this friendly environment. He has a good eye in working with the models strengths and helps you be comfortable in your body. He has fascinating skills with lighting, angles and colors. Max is definitely a unique photographer who has much to offer and exceed expectations in his artwork.

-Adrian Zavala

My family and I are never using another photographer. No other person behind a camera can capture what Max can. It’s not just the magic in lighting he can see or the way he can spot beauty in natural scenery, but he can capture the wonder in a child’s face, the love in a husband’s eyes, and depth of an actor’s range just in a headshot. He’s amazing with kids (no, he’s fantastic with kids!), and his shoots are more than just getting pictures taken- it’s an experience filled with laughs, joy, and fun. And I always come away feeling better about my own self image!

-Samantha Dearing

I just want to thank Max for taking such fabulous pictures at our NM wedding reception! He was so easy to work with…friendly, fun and totally captured the laid back, loving feel of the party. If you need a photographer I highly recommend him! And that goes for my Seattle friends too, he loves to travel. Thanks again Max!!!  

-Diana Thibado

I’d like to give a special shout out to you, Max Woltman. Without your brilliant, beautiful, amazing photo shoot you did of me a few years back, I don’t think I would have ever come out of “my shell.” I’ve looked at those photos over and over for hours on end , tears in my eyes, thinking ” WOW, I still can’t believe that’s me!” Thank you so much for showing me the most stunning side of myself when I was at a very low point in my life…thinking I wasn’t pretty enough, thin enough… or worth it. Sometimes all it takes is a beautiful, artistic soul..like you, Max…. to bring out the confidence and joy in a person, which you managed to do with ease and perfection. Forever grateful!  


Max and our 5 year old granddaughter did a shoot at the Botanic Garden. His gentle friendly demeanor is part of his professional excellence and leads to some fantastic shots. The two of them took off across the garden and the result was so many fantastic images it was hard to make decisions
Nearly a year later she still refers to “her photographer, Max.”


Max has photographed my family, collectively and individually, several times. Apart from his terrific eye in setting up a good shot and his technical skill in capturing the shot, Max has a wonderful way of making us feel relaxed, comfortable and confident. His photos are treasures!

-Jay Hill

I have to say Max helped do my boudoir shoot and he was awesome… he made me feel very comfortable and we had a blast! His work is outstanding!


The first thing you need to know about Max is that he is the most gentle benevolent friendly fellow you’ll likely ever encounter! He is a consumate professional with a keen eye and creative flare that consistently brings out the best in those that choose to work with him. He is excellent and putting you at ease and certainly deserves the price you negotiate! Many people photograph but few possess the innate artistic abilities that Max demonstrates through his work. If you are in search of a kind wonderful young professional artist photographer than please give Max a serious look! I can promise you won’t soon forget it!

-Bo Rogers

Max is a dear friend to us, met him about 3 years ago. He takes our pics, and we buy his pictures. Our place can be called HOUSE of MAX. He does a great job, and VERY professionally.


Max has done an amazing job with my headshots and I would recommend him to any actor. The images were beautifully lit and really captured a classic look that I was going for.

-Diane Villegas

Max Woltman is a very wonderful talented photographer and an even better person. My experience with my shoot with him was that I had the most fun I have ever had on a shoot. He is very nice and I feel like he brings out the best in people in pictures. Not only is he a great guy but he takes the best pictures out of anyone I have worked with from New Mexico to Texas to Florida. I sincerely mean that.

-Clayton Patrick Gentry

Best headshot I’ve ever received! Very professional and the sweetest person to work with! Thank you, Max!

He is a great artist and his manner during shooting got me even more excited about the project. I look forward to more collaborations with this impeccable talent.
