The sexy soccer star, 37, has been secretly studying photography, purchasing pricey equipment and even taking lessons.

So who is Beckham’s muse? 

“He thinks he’s David Bailey now [that] he’s had a few lessons,”  a source told the UK’s Daily Star newspaper. “He takes pictures of everything in his back garden — flowers, the sky, his kids playing football.

“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’s spent thousands. His camera equipment is better than some professional’s.”

The multi-talented dad of four joins a long list of celebrities with quirky interests.
