David Boyson Cooper comes from the Shetland Islands, off of Scotland's north coast, a place that's chalk full of majestic landscapes (think craggy mountains and snow-covered plains wrapped in clouds). Now living in Glasgow, David regularly escapes the city to wilder areas like the ones where he spent his childhood. Joining him on these forays into nature are his friends and his camera, which he uses to capture candid, unplanned moments, i.e. our favorite kind of photos.
"I try to photograph whatever I come across or whatever my friends are doing in their daily lives," he says. "I'm not a huge fan of overly planned or constructed photographs, whatever happens out and about or in and about is what I want to capture. I always have a camera with me, cos the best thing you didnt photograph becomes the best thing you never saw.”
