Maurice Beck (1886 – 1960) was a photographer and designer. During the 1920s he was head photographer, along with Helen MacGregor, for British Vogue and created a number of photographic magazine covers.

Beck and MacGregor worked together in a studio in Marylebone. There was something nonchalant about the lack of direction or rules with which they placed their lights: their haphazard effect often caused shadows with which other more professional photographers would have probably dispensed. However, their results were often notable.
