This is my first piece using Final Cut Pro X. Its a sweet little program and definitely increased my turn around time. But, I am still a fan of FCP 7 and have it on my laptop.

Paige and Will, what a treat it was to capture your wedding. I can’t imagine a better event! From the exclusive access of shooting on Pebble Beach to your wonderful friends and family! It was an honor to be a part of your day. Please enjoy your web movie.


Jess + Al: Engaged

Capturing inspiration shoots are a rare and very special treat for me. Unlike documenting a wedding I am able to direct the entire environment. From the table set, cake, couple, time of day, and my cinema tools I have the time to pace myself and capture it exactly how I want.  None the less the footage speaks for its self and the raw feel just works. Jess + Al and the entire team made for an awesome day and great memories. Enjoy the show, Max.

Oh and I reached one of my goals.

Being featured on Style Me Pretty.

🙂 Big thanks to Hillary Maybery.

Abby + Scott

“Abby and Scott’s ceremony was held at Our Lady of the Snows, followed by a family style ranch dinner down in Picabo. A hay wagon ride drawn by two working draft horses with the family bundled in Pendleton blankets set the tone at the ranch, and sparklers in the snow around the campfire closed the evening. Their day was winter-wonderful and such super people to work with…which makes our jobs so easy!! The fabulous vendors who made their day awesome were…”

Chelsea + Maz: Engagement Video

Here is something you have never seen before! For a few hours Hillary and I were enjoying one of our most fun shoots and then, in a split second, the excitement came to a bone shattering halt. But, the true heros in life get back on the horse and that’s what Chelsea did when she invited us to her parents house to wrap up the best shoot ever! Thanks and enjoy, Max & Hillary

put some colours on

This pice was straight up spontaneous. I had my 7D set to continous shooting and begun taking photos of my friends without the intention of making a video. However once I previewed the photos in order on my computer they started to tell a story. I then opend one photo up in phtoshop and recoreded my color correction edits as an action. Then I automated and batched the entire set of photos. Then dragged them in to a sequence in final cut and threw a Calvin Harris song called Put Some Colours On. This isnt the first time I have explored stop motion. Here is a video I created awhile ago.

So I went with it again and I am pretty happy with the out come. I see integrating this technique in to my professional shoots.
