    Michael Maes enjoys his career behind a lens, as both a photographer and director. For over 20 years, he has lent his editorial vision to commercial projects for a wide range of clients, most of whom he now counts as friends. He loves collaborating with his team, the art directors, and brand representatives to tell the food, beverage, or product story, with a very hands-on approach. From one still photograph, to each frame of a broadcast spot, Michael revels in finding the optimal composition to show his subject in the best possible light.

    An avid outdoorsman and traveller, the experiential quality of food appeals to him. Years of observation come to bear as he captures that moment when melting cheese is its most appealing, or when a pouring beverage is its most refreshing, or when morning light dapples the breakfast table.

    When he isn’t shooting, he’s outside. Farming, hunting, surfing, fishing, boating, hiking, or sitting by a fire. Sometimes close to home, sometimes on the other side of the world, but wherever he is, it’s not indoors.

    You’ll see his work on TV, YouTube, billboards, grocery stores, restaurants, bookstores, magazine racks, Pinterest and Google. His client list includes McDonald’s, Coke, Panera, Quaker, Kellogg’s, MillerCoors, and Kraft Heinz, to name a few.
