Based on his many trips and experiences in the park, Max published a wildlife map and guide in recent years that have been used by thousands of park visitors. He has acted as a consultant and adviser to visiting film crews and photographers.
For the last decade-and-a-half, Max has been photographing wildlife, travel and sports subjects professionally. He was honored with the most images awarded Top 100 status in the 2015 Yellowstone Forever competition, and has been a multiple finalist in the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Max's work has appeared in such publications as Africa Geographic and ESPN the Magazine. When he's not in Yellowstone, he enjoys tromping about the rainforests of Costa Rica (his other favorite place) and photographing wildlife in destinations such as Africa and South America. Max also leads photography workshops and classes near his home in the Seattle area. To see more of Max's work, check out our photo gallery or visit MaxWaugh.com.

When he is not photographing in Yellowstone, Zack can usually be found in the nearby Beartooth Mountains, hiking, backpacking, and exploring the vast wilderness he calls home.
