Max Fairclough is a creative portrait and music photographer based in Melbourne, Australia.
An anomalous artist and observer, Max travels the world documenting and creating dramatic portraits. There is a seamless characteristic that runs throughout his body of work that is both technical and contemporary - encompassing a fine art approach towards the subject. Distinctively in Max's work, his adept play with light gives his photographs a tangible feel, yet at the core, it is his connection with the people he photographs that make every one of his images truly resonate.
His work has enabled him to collaborate with some of the most renowned record labels, managements and publications as well as travel regularly on assignment with touring profiles, most notably joining Taylor Swifts '1989' world tour with Vance Joy. He has worked various other international touring acts like Troye Sivan, Tove Lo, Bring Me The Horizon, Dean Lewis, You Me At Six, PVRIS and so much more.
While Max's principal focus is portraiture and tour documentation, his curiosity and drive has allowed him to work on several Tourism Australia campaigns as a creative director, producer and photographer.
