Finding Your Photographic Voice with David Alan Harvey

David Alan Harvey was born in San Francisco and fell in love with photography at the age of 12. He bought his first Leica at 14 with money earned from his newspaper deliveries. Harvey is the book photo author of Cuba, Divided Soul, Based on a True Story, Living Proof, Haenyeo and his first at age 22, Tell It Like It Is.  He has created 40 long term photo essays for National Geographic, and later joined the prestigious photo cooperative Magnum in 1993. His philosophy on photography is captured in this phrase: “Don’t shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like.”

In this episode, David joins us on stage at the CreativeLive studios sharing his experience and perspective in finding and building our photographic voice. If you’d like to watch David’s presentation, it’s available for free at
