Maq Brown is a Charlotte, NC based photographer that specializes in music, glamour and fashion photography as well as head shots.
A Native of Atlanta, Ga, Maq was a touring and recording musician, traveling around the country until he decided he couldn't take another raman noodle meal ever again. Maq ultimately became a family man and after the birth of his son, Trey, he decided to purchase his first DSLR camera. After learning the camera inside and out, he became obsessed with it and thus his new creative fuse was ignited. His peers that he looked to for technical guidance and mentoring were shooting fashion so he gravitated towards that genre but the musician inside of him took him back to the stage to shoot rock bands for AntiHeroMagazine.com and BraveWords.com. In 2017 Maq and his wife welcomed the newest member of the family, their daughter, Bayli.
Maq uses mostly artificial light (flash) for all of his fashion work, both indoors and outdoors, and ambient stage lighting for his concert work. He puts a lot of attention to and spends quality time perfecting and crafting every image taken, both in camera and in the editing process. When you shoot with Maq, he creates a very fun, energetic, and stress free environment that will keep bringing you back for more.
When Maq isn't shooting he is still playing guitar and writing music, spending time with this wife and son, or working the day job as an IT Systems Engineer for Williams Sonoma.
