About Max Foster Photography

A Minnesota Landscape Photographer

I was born and raised in a small town outside Minneapolis, Minnesota and have always loved the outdoors and dreaming of far off places. As a kid, I remember spending countless hours outside wandering through fields and woods. Exploring and discovering new natural places was, and continues to be, one of my favorite pastimes. This love of exploration ultimately led to my passion for photography.

Our natural world is incredibly beautiful and diverse, yet I am drawn to the man made as well. Over the past several years I have been fortunate to visit many new places, both in the United States and abroad. When traveling, I enjoy immersing myself in the local culture, connecting with locals and of course, finding beautiful locations for photography. Whether I am in the middle of the mountains or the middle of an urban metropolis, I am always looking for my next photo. I also love traveling within my home state of Minnesota. The North Shore of Lake Superior is one of my favorite destinations, with countless streams, rivers and rocky lake shore to explore and photograph. I am happy to consider myself a Minnesota Landscape Photographer!

All my photos are digitally developed using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I use a refined work flow that brings out the best of each photo, and I am completely open and honest about my work. If you are curious about how this process works, you can see my entire workflow online. I have partnered with Really Right Stuff on a post processing series on their website, here. 

Thanks for stopping by my website, I hope you find some inspiration and enjoyment!
