Humans of 2075 - David Cohen

Meet the 22 year old budding photographer, a St Ives local for more than 18 years.

  • Tell us about yourself; do you live in St Ives/work in St Ives - what is your connection? I am a 22 year old Psychology student who works as a part time photographer and math tutor. I have lived in St Ives since the age of 4 and am a Masada College graduate.

  • How long have you been involved in the St ives community I’ve been part of this beautiful community for the last 18 years.

  • You’ve just begun your photographic journey - what drew you to photography? I have always had an interest in the artform but I was pushed over the edge near the start of COVID lockdowns when I was looking for a hobby. I love the creativity involved, the challenge to learn, and the element of technology (which I have a particular interest in).

  • St Ives is full of natural beauty, can you recommend any ‘hot spots’ for great shots? I love shooting in the Wildflower Garden and the Darlymple-Hay Reserve, but if you are willing to delve further into the bush there is no end to the gems you can find!

  • What are your top 3 tips for amateur photographers?

  1. YouTube is your greatest learning tool, there are endless videos that go over infinite topics on every aspect of the art

  2. Always have a ‘subject’ whether that be a person, object, scene, or whatever – it helps to add depth and intrigue to your work that takes it from a photo to a story!

  3. Just have fun! Shoot what makes you happy.
