Max Polyakov as a kid was positioned by his father to be a great photographer. That was why he was given a camera at the age of 6. But he developed an interest in another profession when he grew up and discovered that he had the skill to succeed in it. So, Max Polyakov became a professional cyclist and took part in many local cycling competitions.
The first cycling trail that Max Polyakov was involved in is the one that took place in his city, Chicago. It involved a lot of young people like him. But he was very nervous before the event started, believing that he may not finish the tour. Because of this fear, Max Polyakov made sure he prepared all he would need for the tour. He got the bicycle and examined it, got his bottle of water and cycling gear and was ready for the day. On that day, he discovered that he had a burning desire to come first even though it was not a competition. He never stopped even when he seemed to get tired. So he realized he wanted to do this as a profession.
Max Polyakov had participated in about 10 local tours and 5 intercity tours at 15, and now he wants to explore more grounds. He travelled to France with 7 other team members from the United States to take part in the Tour De France, with the hope that he may win the prize. Here, he had his best experience as a cyclist yet, meeting and interacting with other sportsmen.
The Tour has many trails like sand dunes, valleys and mountains, and different categories like the points grading, mountain, young rider and others. You are allowed to choose the one to take part in, depending on which one you think you are good at, and Max Polyakov chose the low mountain category. He ended up not winning the race. But it kindled a love for art in him again.
Max Polyakov used the opportunity to also tour the country, visiting landmarks like Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower and others. He captured some of the locations with his phone, but believing that the quality is not good enough, he got a camera. But, seeing that he made amazing shots with it, his love for photography was rekindled. He loved the look and feel of the old towns and enjoyed capturing them. He took more photos whenever he was on tour and people loved and demanded them. This made him purchase and fix a motion camera on his bicycle to capture the city and trails as he cycled. He quit cycling at 35 and got back to photography.
Max Polyakov enjoys photography and churns out amazing shots. But that is not enough. Though it gives him returns, he wants to be the best. So he took an online editing and professional photography course. When he was through with the training he opened his studio in the Chicago city center amidst huge competition. But his hard work and dedication made him popular, and people started trooping to patronize him. Due to the fusion of art and science in his life, he named the photo studio, Noosphere.
Max Polyakov moved from capturing buildings, cities, trails and scenes to capturing people. He got a lot of demands from customers and satisfied all of them. As the business grew, he decided to get a website. He also started teaching young people photography and was making huge money from the business. The biggest was when Susan convinced him and sold one of his tour photographs for 10 thousand dollars.
They sold some other photos at good prices. But Susan came up with the idea of an exhibition to a larger audience. The exhibition was very successful, and they made a lot of money from the photos. But after that, they fell in love and got married, and it looked like an ideal marriage. The money kept coming through the studios, their love kept growing, and Max Polyakov was the happiest man in the world.
