My name is Max Wilson and I am an Emmy Award winning photographer based in Chicago. I started this website as a way to showcase some of my timelapse work I have completed in Chicago and for a way to direct possible clients to view it.  I originally started out as a freelance photographer in the Chicago area.  My business and client list grew and I joined forces with the team at Threaded Films.

Our focus at Threaded Films, is doing specialty media projects for our clients.  At Threaded, I work with some of the most talented filmmakers in the Chicago area, including Ross Gerbasi, an Emmy Award Winning Photographer and Red Clark a talented director and producer.  We all work together with our clients to produce creative imagery and often problem solve to come up with solutions which fit their needs. Threaded Films and ChicagoTimelapse run parallel together to produce our creative imagery.  The work we do is often specialty media projects including video production, timelapse, stop motion, producing and directing, writing, conception, motion graphics and editing.  We also have strong relationships with other video production teams in Chicago so no project is too big for us to handle.  We are fully insured and own our own video gear and equipment.  We often work outside the Chicago area and travel to location assignments to work with our clients.

If you have any questions or would like to chat about hiring us for a project, please use the contact form on my contact page to get in touch with us.  Our photography work has been featured and written up by several news and online outlets.
