I have spent the better part of my life focusing a camera lens while growing up as a photographer in my father’s studio and eventually becoming its owner.
My favorite photography quote is: “Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.” -David Alan Harvey

A fun fact about me
In the summer of 2006 my wife Cathy & I bought an historic, three-story building where the studio is now located. The studio occupies the top 2 floors. The light in the camera rooms is beautiful! I am a hobbyist woodturner and mandolin player. My wife and I have four children and reside in Westerville.

Love the photo album I just got from the best friend shoot I did over the summer
What an excellent job you did at our Hilliard Taekwondo Academy's Photo Day this year. You kept things moving along as we alternated between group and individual photos. And every photo turned out terrific. You captured the perfect expression on every person's face ... a tough job with that many photos to take! Thank you!
Very professional and private we felt very comfortable and had a great photo shoot. I will go to no other studio.
Alan was very professional and the pictures turned out beautiful-we would recommend him to anyone needing a photo for any reason!!
Alan has been our official photographer at our school for years. Great doing Graduation pictures, commercial stuff and groups. I very highly recommend.
