My name is Maik, co-owner and operator of Headshot Nirvana. Born and raised in Germany, I've been pursuing photography as a career for over twenty years, first starting commercial advertising and fashion, then later focusing on people photography after moving to Canada in 2001.
I have always been fascinated by the human face. How the brain is wired to recognize emotions within split seconds, our subconscious mind distinguishes between a fake and a real smile instantly. Did you know we decide in under a second if a person is friend or foe by just looking at their picture?
Knowing this, and the importance of social media and public image for your career, my goal is to give you a competitive head start. Let me present you in the best way possible. Not fake, not exaggerated, just the real you. The best version of yourself.
