He’s highly sought after for his keen photographic eye, his ability to elevate the story through stunning cinematography, and the creative spark he brings to each project.
Recent work includes specialty cinematography on a Sony Pictures/Katheryn Bigelow feature film. In 2013 Bryan was a cinematographer on “Belief, “ an epic eight–hour documentary series produced by Oprah Winfrey and Part2 Pictures that looks at the personal nature of belief, religion, and spirituality around the world (to be released in 2015).

The son of a world-renowned Magnum photographer, Harvey grew up immersed in the world of fine art photography, inspired by the works of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and other masters. His career began at National Geographic where he wrote, directed, photographed, and edited over 20 films for the landmark television series, National Geographic Explorer. Today Harvey has focused his work on creating ground-breaking imagery using the latest cutting edge photographic tools.
When not shooting in some far-flung location, Harvey can be found on his beloved Outer Banks chasing the light, wind, and waves with equal passion.
