After moving to Berlin David Biene completed the reknown Lette Verein, school for photo design, in 2003, worked as an assistant for various photographers and started working as a freelance photographer already while being still in school. Parallel to working as a photographer, Biene is very active in Berlin’s cultural underground. He volunteered in the organisation of the internationally known independent art house „Tacheles“ and worked as a bartender and bouncer in the infamous „White Trash Fast Food“.

His main fields of photography are editorial and portrait photography, documentary, PR and advertising. David Biene’s first coffee table book „Hopped-Up“ was released in 2009.
