Max Sejour is a self-taught, professional commercial and fashion photographer. He has been working on a pro level for 10 years, and as a passionate hobbyist since the film days in 1997. He has done weddings, events, a few product shots and some car shoots as well, nature and cityscape but his passion is photographing people, which led him to focus on commercial and fashion work. He has done photoshoots in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, DC, Virginia, Delaware, Texas, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, and currently in the Atlanta, GA area. He has a love for people, art, images and moving stills, and combining that with always wanting to see the best in others, drives his passion to create great memory through the art of photography. He takes pride in helping each client get comfortable in the photoshoots, in order to bring out their best. And he keeps that theme through his detailed way of editing each image.
My favorite part of photography, is seeing the story and moment captured in the still images, and the look on a client’s face when they get to view those images. Those two things alone give me plenty of joy. Besides that, I love working with different people and working on various types of projects as well. I love variety, and this job fulfills just that.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done various types of portraits, headshots, events, weddings, car shoots, product shoots, cityscapes, but my favorites type always remains working with people. The most special shoots for me, are when I find a beautiful location to match the look my client is going for or a location that is special to them, and I help turn someone that is skeptical in taking people, to someone who now loves their images. When my client feels great about themselves and the final images, that means the world to me.

A fun fact about this photographer
I am an artist at heart, I love music and the arts. The first instrument that I learned was the Recorder, I then played the bass clarinet in my high school band, and then I learned the saxophone. I also was one of the lead tenors in my church youth choir, and eventually became one of the directors of that choir as well. I love cars, electronics, technology, and traveling to new places, while meeting new people.
