Don’t shoot what it looks like! Shoot what it feels like!

- David Alan Harvey -

I live in Budapest, Hungary, an exciting, vibrant city and this has turned my main interest in photography towards shooting the street. It fascinates me of turning ordinary scenes to extraordinary by grabbing that split second in time when something magical happen which will never occur again, gone forever for the naked eye. Feels like making a moment of life live forever and carry a slice of past to the future. What could be a better environment for this than the city where architecture meets nature, human meets artificial and life meets decay?
Besides street photography I love to travel new places and experience the vibe of them by capturing the locals, the landscape, the details.
Occasionally I take photos of models or people posing, but I prefer snapshots and captured moments over precisely setup scenes.
