David was born in 1978 in Dvůr Králové nad Labem. He now lives in Hradec Králové. He took his first pictures as a child with a Flexaret camera but he didn’t take photography seriously until 2008 when he bought a digital reflex camera and started shooting actively. David’s first photographic steps led him to reportage photography – he documented historical celebrations and oriental dance shows. As reportage photography mostly means capturing people and is close to portrait photography, David started to explore this genre in the form of self-study and his own shooting. Portrait photography has become David’s most often photographed genre and he keeps improving in both portrait shooting and the subsequent post-production.
