I'm Max Oden, and I love telling stories. In addition to my years of work for daily newspapers, I've also spent my time helping faith-based nonprofits tell their story across Central America, the Caribbean, and Japan. 

My photographs have been published in the pages of TIME Magazine, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Los Angeles Times, among others. 

Currently, I am a staff photographer for Mission Guatemala, an NGO operating in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Prior to moving to Guatemala, I worked as a staff photographer for the international aid organization Food For The Poor. I was also previously a staff photojournalist at The News & Advance in Lynchburg, Virginia and the Dothan Eagle, in Dothan, Alabama. 

I have limited availability for assignments in Guatemala. Please email- I'd love to talk!
