Bio

Director - Photographer - DOP - Lover of the land- All round GC
“Here to get shit done”
Maxy is a director/DOP with a visual narrative focus, combining technical skill and a talent for telling emotive stories. This soulful surfer from the North Island of New Zealand is the guy you want to go on the road with. A technician and an artist in equal measure, he’s inquisitive, thoughtful, clued-up, hands-on and solutions-focused. Simply put, he gets shit done.

With a background in stills photography, Maxy finds beauty in places and faces. A farm boy at heart, he sees human nature and Mother Nature as being innately intertwined.

Maxy’s driving motivation is having the potential power to touch others with his film and photography. You could say he’s got his feet firmly on the ground while at the same time looking at the stars.

Inspired from a young age by the photography of National Geographic, he has a fascination with getting under the skin of his subjects and really capturing them through the lens. His ability to do this has seen his work in exhibitions in NZ, as well as Bali and New York.

Now backed by production companies Eight (Video) and IDC (Stills), he has a team with the weight to combine his relaxed shooting style with a well-planned schedule. This combination has proven to be successful and has seen him work with some of the hottest agencies in town. Maxy has worked with the likes of Collenso BBDO, Ogilvy, VML Y&R, FCB, and Barnes, Catmur and Friends Densu producing work for both local and international clients.
