If you aren’t following David Alan Harvey on Instagram, do yourself a favor and change your ways. His account is arguably one of the most valuable accounts for a budding photographer to follow due to his never-ending posts with beautifully written captions and his prolific story-posting. His generous spirit shines through as he gives mini-course after mini-course on how to create a book or how to be a more devoted shooter. David lives for photography and his wisdom on the craft is invaluable.
He was recently interviewed by Coralie Kraft, and this paragraph fabulously summarizes how passionate David Alan Harvey is about his love affair with the camera, “I’ve been a voracious shooter for as long as I can remember.

Take this inspiration and continue to shoot, even when you think there’s no reason!
