A sense of balance can often seem to be lacking in this modern, fast-paced world in which we all live. Max Salk is both an accomplished business figure as well as a noted landscape photographer and he’s got a line on how to go about balancing life’s demands. He’s driven for success in a demanding occupation and yet finds time to pursue a fascinating and fulfilling hobby.
Salk is currently an investment analyst in New York City which follows a stint with Morningstar and PPM America. He’s working with the Blackstone Group where he shows passion and skill in finding unique investments for clients.
Preparation has been a critical skill for Max Salk in both his professional life and as he goes about his photographic endeavors. One little act of preparation as he prepared for a walk in the Netherlands illustrates how important it can be. One foggy morning he took a walk and just before leaving he grabbed his camera just in case. It paid off as he snapped a memorable photo of a mist covered harbor scene. To this day it can be seen on the first page of his photography website.
Another attribute that has powered Salk and his accomplishments are his flexibility. He understands that controlling every detail is not possible as he attempts to shoot a high-quality landscape photo. He may wait several hours for natural light conditions to be just right to produce something memorable. This type of preparation, with flexibility in mind, has culminated in some of his best works as a photographer.
Owning the most important moments is also something that Max Salk strives to do and he’s demonstrated a remarkable degree of success. An example of this is one of his presentations of an investment opportunity. Despite hours of work beforehand and substantial preparation, colleagues and clients only see a short informational pitch and he’s keenly aware of his need to make the most of those moments.
In closing, Salk brings forth a great principle as he reminds people that there is more than one path to success. The world is full of opportunities and he urges everyone to find their own brand of success and satisfaction.
