Max Richardson


An American born photographer, living in Israel since 1991. Since 1996 he has made Jerusalem's most revered sites his visual home.


Max’s imaging skills know no boundaries. When presenting photographic lighting workshops at the Hadassah College of Technology in Jerusalem, Max was known to his students as the doctor of light.
His images give us a rare look at the excavations along the Western Wall of the Temple Mount in the book, “The Western Wall Tunnels, Touching the Stones of Our Heritage” (Dan Bahat, Israel Ministry of Defence), and “City of David, The Story of Ancient Jerusalem”, (Ahron Horovitz) and more.


While putting his heart into bringing these renowned sites to the world, Max was the lighting designer for several fine art photography books and exhibitions:


“Historic Synagogues of the World”, Neil Folberg, Aperture Foundation; 

“Travels with Van Gogh and the Impressionists”, Lin Arison / Neil Folberg Abbeville Press;

“Feast For the Senses, A Musical Oddesy in Umbria” Lin Arison/Neil Folberg, and many more

Other publications include:

Yaakov A. Wolstein

Yaakov's upbringing in different countries has undoubtedly influenced his work as a creator, bringing a unique perspective to his visual art. His experience in mastering photography, video, and film at the Ontario College of Art, and his work with notable clients such as Fox, Paramount, and MGM have solidified his place in the creative industry. Collaborating with renowned directors like David Cronenberg, Damian Harris, and Paul Michael Glaser have also added to his experience and knowledge.

Taking a leave of absence in 1992 from the creative world to focus on business and family allowed Yaakov to develop his skills as an entrepreneur and a leader. His return to the creative world in 2018 with a fresh perspective and a wealth of experience is a testament to his passion for visual art. Yaakov's commitment to giving back to his community through charitable organizations is admirable, showcasing his compassion and dedication to making a positive impact.

His diverse background, entrepreneurial spirit, and collaboration with others make him a valuable member of the creative industry, creating memorable and impactful visual experiences for audiences.
