Max Thompson: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength


Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I'm a visionary that shares my views with the masses

Why do you do what you do?

I love creating art

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I knew once I bought my first camera. My friends suggested I get

into photography.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

I haven't had to overcome any serious obstacles while doing this. The

journey has been pretty smooth if anything.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I could write a list of people alive or dead that have inspired my craft

somehow. And I've been told I've inspired others, so thats been great.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I've learned how to manage my time better. There's been instances in

the past that I invested more time into certain projects than needed.

Its all a matter of using your best judgement.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Got a zine in the works, an exhibition in Los Angeles, as well as

some workshops coming up.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Instead of thinking outside the box, try forgetting it's even there.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Thanks for having me.
