From Darkness to Light

Photography has the power to transform your life.

In a dark episode of my life, my parents gave me a small compact camera. A door opened and a new chapter started which lifted me out of my depression and gave me a purpose in life.


On my journey as photographer, I became more confident, got more aware of the external & internal world and learned to be more present and put the focus away from myself. It also connected me many wonderful people, which I would not have met without my camera.



Don’t you sometimes long for a change in your life? Photography might be what you are looking for. It has the potential to change you and improve your life.

Is it a miracle pill? It is as much a miracle pill like signing up for the gym. You have to know what you are doing and you have to keep on doing it.

Photography can teach you many things.


Mission Possible

My purpose is to take action, observe & investigate life. The hunger to learn and grow is immense. We live in amazing times, where you can share & connect with the world.



More than photos

Photos inspire me to find fitting quotes and write down my thoughts. The camera pulls you out into the action lets you experience new stories.


“What is in for me?”

This blog offers you entertainment, a place to learn something new or even a reminder of what you might new, but have forgotten. Here you can be inspired how photography can have an impact on your life.

    For me David's Mihalka's work significantly stand out among others and carries its own signature, offering instant recognition. My customers always approach me about his photos. Also a German TV station who filmed a documentary in my office mentioned the photos and asked where they could purchase them.

    A super fun photo shoot. David sees with his camera the details necessary to surprise you with the final photos. Amazing!

    Graphic Designer

    David approached me in Bern in February 2009 - less than a ten minute walk away from the fountains. Afterwards we met to take pictures together and still do until today.

    He had had a difficult time in life at the time and found himself with photography. But it was more than a finding – it was a big burst of bubbles! David does not want to convince; he convinces by what and how he does it. He bubbles like the water feature and gives you a smile ... If you pause briefly and get involved in what's going on in front of you.
