Tomáš Neuwirth is freelance international award-winning photographer that specializes in drone photography. He was born on the 22 of July 1972 in Rýmařov in the Czech Republic. A major milestone in his life was the year 1995, when he began to devote himself to paragliding. As a pilot, he was fascinated by taking pictures of the bird's eye, then still on the 35mm film camera. The following year, he moved to the USA. But his stay here after three and a half years ended the paragliding incident and with serious injuries of the spine he returned to the Czech Republic. He then spent eight months in a sanatorium, learned not only to walk again, but also met his future wife Gabriela. The acquisition of aerial footage continued to attract him. With the advent of unmanned technologies, new possibilities were opened. His first dron he folded in 2011, it was a kit from the Xaircraft company. However, the desired shots were made by commercially produced drones in the following years.
