Max Woltman

Max Woltman’s photography experience spans nearly twenty years. He has photographed thousands of headshots and hundreds of musicals, concerts, weddings, and events. His body of work also includes floral, landscape, and abstract images, as well as a sizeable collection of figurative studies and portraiture. Max brings a theatrical aesthetic and emotional intimacy to his fine art. He is sought for his observant eye, passionate voice, and gift for seeing beauty in everyone.

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Max draws inspiration from the southwestern landscape and iconography as well as his background in theater, dance, and music. During his time as a student at the University of Arizona in Tucson, he worked for the Center for Creative Photography, where he organized negatives, prints, and journals created by masters such as Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. It was an experience that expanded his affection for photography as an art form and motivated Max to purchase his first camera.

Locally, Max has exhibited works at Sumner Dene Gallery, Mariposa Gallery, New Mexico Cancer Center, The Museum of Natural History, The University of New Mexico, and EXPO New Mexico. He has been featured in several print and web publications and blogs, including the Canadian sponsored international NUDE Photoshoot Awards contest and book, for which he took first place in the dance & movement category in 2016. Recently Max was awarded opportunities to document the Albuquerque Railyards and Santa Fe Opera productions.

Ongoing projects include a New Mexico Idols fantasy photo collection and #What We See, a portrait series celebrating diversity, body positivity, and self-expression. To see more of his work, visit www.maxwoltmanfineartphotography.com
