David Harnadi was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia. He is a talented photographer who enjoys dining out, sipping coffee or tea. He just loves to capture the moment, the essence and mood, and he shares the fine art of lifestyle photography on his Instagram account @dav_eat.
All for the love of lifestyle photography!
He started his Instagram journey back in 2012, right after the app became available for Android users (he used Android at that time). Now you can find a lot of inspiration from his amazing profile.
“I would say it’s a flavourful evolution. I used to do it with food, I still do now, but I finally realized that I could have it more easily with coffee”, he said.
Besides IG, he is helping out with his dad’s business while doing some freelance work for copywriting and content photography.
“To be frank, I’m not much of a planner. I just want to be able to travel and explore more, creating better content while expanding my skill set and ideas, not just by being a coffeegrammer”, he said.
He wants to inspire others and become an eye opener, life isn’t just about engagement rate. David Harnadi thinks it’s about how you can influence others with your work and taste bud that obviously this isn’t always statistical.
He loves single origins coffee in various methods, relishing the clean taste with some twists, but he doesn’t drink coffee on a regular basis.
“I take it as a recreational drink that I enjoy in a more celebratory manner. This way I could appreciate more by making it special”, he said.
“I have a couple of friends with more knowledge about coffee. There is this one variety I was recently introduced and would like to try called Typica. It’s said that it has a more woody note.
Every coffee experience has its own fascination, and most of them are intimate.
I enjoy having my sips with the barista doing their things right in front of me while sharing their experience or knowledge in a deep discussion mode.
I also enjoy letting my coffee cold, drowned with fun chitchat with my close one(s)”, he said.
