Antwon Maxwell’s journey into photography began while traveling throughout Asia on a work assignment. Passionate about well, everything, Antwon utilized his drive to immerse himself in learning everything he could about photography. Shortly after beginning his photography journey, his skills advanced to the point that seasoned photographers were asking him for advice on lighting and retouching. During his time in South Korea, Antwon further honed his skills in posing, lighting, and retouching from having limited models, makeup artists, and wardrobe availability.
In 2015, Antwon moved back to the United States with a full waiting list of clientele. Since his return, Antwon has shot several celebrities and his photographs have been featured in numerous magazines, including Kontrol Magazine; Hype Hair Magazine and Ellement Magazine. Antwon is known for his clean, sophisticated, and luxurious images accompanied by high-end retouching. His work has amassed him huge followings on both Instagram (@antwonmaxwellphotography) and YouTube (Antwon Maxwell Photography). Antwon has recently began hosting workshops to share his knowledge and to support local photographers grow their skills.
Antwon’s photography team includes himself, his wife, and his Canon 5D Mark iv. He currently resides in Washington, D.C. holding down a day job as an IT Specialist. Antwon plans to move to Los Angeles and pursue his photography dreams full time.
