Max has been modeling for 7 years, specializing in fitness, physique, and action-sports print and infomercials. Seven years builds a lot of experience and credibility, boosts confidence, and proves consistency. Max is at ease in front of the camera. He is the Road Runner Sports ‘Underwear Guy’, and is currently working with Hoist Fitness Systems, an international commercial and home gym manufacturer based in San Diego. Max has worked with Next/Designer Proteins, been featured on numerous covers of Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness magazines, and worked with many other clients in the fitness industry. Max has been profiled in 'Men's Workout', 'Exercise and Health', 'Exercise for Men Only' magazines. Recently he was invited to work with Icon Men, joining ranks of the best men's fit-models in the industry. Max also competes in yearly fitness-model competitions: a side-by-side way to benchmark himself against other top models, and always places in the top 3 competitors.
Max sets the standard for other models to step up to. This is because Max is reliable, consistently 'photo ready' in appearance, (lean, tan, shaved, etc.), and always on time. Max maintains a clean, drug-free, lifestyle and a body-fat percentage of less than 6%, year round - an essential quality for any professional fit-model. Equally important, is Max’s upbeat and energetic attitude. He’s always a team player who expects to help the crew out around the set and who never complains! Just say, “No!” to whiny, spoiled models and book Max. Max will perform your exercises and pose all day with never-ending energy, and he even packs his own snacks. You won't hear him complain of soreness or injuries!
For Max, optimum health and fitness are a way of life and a passion, and having a lean, tone physique naturally follows. Good genetics sure help! Max views modeling as a creative outlet and a way to challenge himself physically. While he is definitely committed and professional, he views modeling more as fun and less as work. This is primarily because Max’s number one profession and career is as a pilot for a major airline, JetBlue Airways. This also means Max can fly for free to any location you need him too.
Max is a Captain for JetBlue and has flown with them for 5 years. Prior to joining JetBlue, Max was a carrier-based, navy pilot for 10 years. He flew the E-2C Hawkeye on board the carriers USS Abe Lincoln and Carl Vinson, deploying twice to the Persian Gulf. Max received his commission as a navy officer through ROTC, graduating from the University of Colorado with a B.A. in Mathematics. While at C.U.-Boulder he pole-vaulted on the varsity track team for 2 years, and was on the club wrestling team.
Max has recently been writing health and fitness articles for the JetBlue pilots’ Intranet site, and is recognized by his peers as the resident fitness advisor. His featured articles can be found on this web site, and while the primary intended audience is pilots and their occupational hazards, they can be helpful to anyone who is interested in fitness and physiology. Max also coaches weight-loss groups and 'biggest-loser' clubs. Max always writes from a naturalistic, health-first, vanity-second, point of view.
Max is married to his wife of 12 years and college sweetheart, Donna, and in 2004 they had a baby girl, Bryce. They reside in Encinitas California, north county San Diego. When he is not flying, taking care of Bryce, or working out, Max can be found surfing, skating pools and bowls, mountain biking, snow skiing, or motorcycle riding: So action-photographers take note if you want to capture the body in motion.
“I recently had the opportunity to be shot by John Mitchell of BBPICS.com in Santa Monica Beach CA. John was quick but thorough, very professional, and new how to direct me for the perfect shot, to bring out my physique’s potential. Even a seasoned fitness model veteran like myself, learned a few tricks from John’s direction and posing suggestions. John is very personable and takes the time to conduct a complete shoot to include lifestyle, fitness and bodybuilding type shots, providing the model a more diverse portfolio on his website BBPICS.com. I look forward to shooting with John again."
