Dear visitor, hello. My name is David Bokuchava, I am a traveler, blogger, and photographer. I was born in subtropical Georgia, a country at the junction of Europe and Asia. At the age of 12, I moved to gloomy St. Petersburg, Russia as a refugee. Graduated with excellence from St. Petersburg State University and, after a period of searching myself, turned into a digital nomad traveling around the world with a photo camera.
My photos have been published in books (Lonely Planet guidebooks and other ones) and numerous online newspapers and magazines including The Telegraph, Business Insider, Forbes, Spiegel Online, Time Out Moscow, etc (more examples).
The Life Path
So it all began: I was born in a family of artists, got addicted to the paints and the plasticine and had been sculpting a futuristic city of the tiny plasticine folk all through my childhood. I started taking pictures when I got my first film camera, being a teenager. I photographed family events, then university life, and adventures with my friends.
In 2009, I created a travel blog and forum za7gorami.ru (in Russian) that has been visited by several million visitors in total since then. Thanks to the success of my website, I turned into a digital nomad and photographed for my travel articles and social media while vagabonding in Asia.
During the 2010s, I spent several years in India, Thailand, Vietnam, Nepal, China, Indonesia, Turkey, etc. Among other things, this was a great opportunity for landscape, wildlife and street photography, as well as for meeting traveling photographers and other creatives from all over the world.
Currently, photography is my main focus. I am in search of ways of professional growth.
I do editorial photography of urban life in different parts of the world.
I shoot stock scenes as well.
I take photos and footage with a high-quality DSLR camera (Nikon D750) and Nikkor lenses (mostly prime ones).
