Max Posner is an award winning photographer, multimedia producer, and FAA certified drone pilot. Born in Washington D.C., he moved to Richmond, Virginia to attend Virginia Commonwealth University where he graduated with a B.A. in Political Science in 2012. His work in documentary media began with producing 'RVA Green Space', a series he created for WRIR Richmond Independent Radio that explored underrepresented recreational infrastructure and green space in the city. In 2017 he left Richmond to work as an outdoor educator and backcountry guide in the Pacific Northwest. He moved to New York City in 2018 where he studied at the International Center of Photography, graduating from the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism Program in June, 2019. In January of 2020 he began work as the Multimedia Intern with the NPR Science Desk editing visual content for breaking and long-form news stories. He continued on with the Science Desk as a Production Assistant until October, 2020 as NPR saw an unprecedented increase in the volume of digital stories amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic. His personal work explores intersections of humans with the natural world. He is currently working in a freelance capacity.
