max s. gerber


i was leaving for work one day, explaining the subject and the shoot to my 3 year old son. he thought for a moment and said "can i help you take a picture about him?" 

a simple mistake of grammar suddenly seemed so profound. for 20+ years i've been describing what i do incorrectly.

hi, my name is max. i take pictures about people for magazines, companies, advertising, educational institutions, and others. 

people who are uncomfortable having their picture taken are somehow comfortable with me. 

the boy is bigger now. i, sadly, am not.

based in los angeles, california.
