About Zbyněk Buřival
I'm a geologist and photographer based in Czech republic (Europe). I have started with photography pretty early and being active rock collector, I quickly slipped into photographing minerals. I did first mineral pictures somewhere around 2002 and just year later in 2003 I have released my own website Rockhound.cz, which is open gallery of mineral photos currently displaying nearly 5000 mineral photos from various authors. Besides my primary occupation as a geologist I do work also as a freelance photographer selling both via stock agencies and on assignment. My mineral pictures were published on several websites, in some magazines and I also scored one book. You can see some of my photos on my personal website burival.com or check my stock photos portfolio at Hortifoto.cz.
