My name is Maximilian Draeger, i was born in Munich in 1997 and I am still living there. After finishing school in 2015, I decided to become a professional photographer and started my own business. So obviously photography is one of my major passions. I discovered the love for taking pictures almost ten years ago and since then I have constantly been trying new things, learning new techniques and developing my own style.
At the age of 14 I discovered my second big passion thanks to my best friend. Mountains. Since these days, where we hiked up small mountains that where accessible with public transport, I have never been bored about being in the mountains. I loved it. And I still do! Hiking up to the top of lonely peak, riding down flow trails on my mountain bike, climbing a nice route, running on technical trails or skiing some nice powder on a skitour - this is what I am living for.
There is no other place than the mountains to experience this deep feeling of freedom, passion and satisfaction.
Today I am very proud to say that I am combing these two worlds of photography and mountain sports as a full time professional travel and action photographer.
