David Kovar was a photographer in the "glamour days" of Hollywood. Kovar started out as a "costumer" and met John Wayne in one of the studios Wayne shot his early Westerns at in the 1930s. On Wayne's suggestion he decided to pursue photography as an occupation with better chances of advancement. Kovar started his new career in fashion and eventually returned to his apparent first love, the movies. He became a staff photographer for Paramount TV productions and taught classes in photography in trade schools and at Pepperdine University.
