Max Salk is a businessman and landscape photographer. He resides in New York City. Max believes in maintaining balance and keeping it simple despite the chaos of modern life. He doesn’t follow the trend and chase after the next big tech innovation unless it will benefit his personal life or his business. He avoids getting so caught up in his career that he neglects his passionate pursuits such as sports and landscape photography.
The principles that Max Salk lives by keep him balanced and successful. He believes in the importance of preparation. One example of how being prepared paid off for him was during a trip he took to the Netherlands. Max felt like taking a walk one morning and brought his camera with him. He took pictures of a harbor while on his walk. Several years later those same picture he took of the harbor are on his photography website.
Another principle Max Salk lives by is knowing how to adjust on the fly. He believes it’s OK to let go and let things unfold the way that they are supposed to once you’ve prepared for it. A lot of things happen that are out of our control, therefore you must be ready to make adjustments on the fly. An example of this concept is landscape photography. Landscape photographers have to know how to adjust their technique and sometimes they have to wait hours and make changes to their photo shoot because they don’t have control over nature. It’s just the same in life, we can’t control everything that happens so we have to be willing to adjust.
Max also believes in making your moment count. He goes all out by making sure the presentations he gives are effective. His presentations may be brief but he knows that they make a lasting impression and have a big impact on his success. Another principle he lives by is to pursue your passion relentlessly. He believes that when you find something you love doing something that makes you happy everyday you should pursue it passionately.
