Max Flatow Photography


Brooklyn, NY Based Photographer

My name is Max Flatow and I'm a photographer who was born, raised, and currenty lives in Brooklyn, New York, with my photography teacher wife and two kids. I specialize in food photography, wedding photography, and portrait photography.

Before I became a professional photographer, I worked in set design, alongside photo greats like Annie Liebovitz and Steven Klein. During those early years in my career, I learned to think on my feet, listen carefully, and share in my clients' vision. That invaluable experience sparked my desire to work in the fast-paced, competitive, and wonderful world of professional photography.


When I'm not photographing weddings, food, portraits, and events across the country, I'm enjoying every waking second with my beautiful wife, Amy, and our two sons, Miles and Levon. We love hiking, camping and exploring the great US National Parks. We have a second home in upstate New York, and I often work throughout the Catskill Mountains and Hudson Valley during the Summer months.
