David Beckham is secretly studying to be a photographer
The soccer star has become obsessed with taking pictures and has even splashed out on pricey camera equipment to help him with his new hobby.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Since David took some photography lessons, he never puts his camera down.
"He`s bought himself how-to books and spends hours trying to perfect shots.
"He thinks he`s David Bailey now he`s had a few lessons. He takes pictures of everything - birds in his back garden, flowers, the sky, his kids playing football.
"He`s spent thousands. His camera equipment is better than some professionals."
Meanwhile, proud dad David recently revealed his 14-month-old daughter Harper is a mix of him and his fashion designer wife Victoria as she is into "soccer and handbags".
The 37-year-old sports star is delighted the tot - who was seen kicking a football on a pitch recently - is picking up traits from both him and Victoria, and is also taking tips from her brothers Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and seven-year-old Cruz.
He said: "She is a mixture of us both. She is walking and running around and the boys are running with her to make sure she doesn`t fall.
"She is also kicking the ball around while she is carrying handbags."
