Hi, I am Daniela!
I am a food and product photographer, blogger, cookbook author and educator.
I have been passionate about baking and creating my own recipes since I was a kid. In 2012 I started my first food blog which opened for me the world of food photography.
In the meantime I was already climbing the career ladder in a big corporation. I graduated in Portuguese Philology and started working in a multinational company where I went through different positions and promotions within over 13 years. I learned how to create and deliver trainings, how to provide excellent service to clients even in challenging circumstances and how to coach and motivate people for outstanding results. I managed multinational teams with over 70 people reporting to me.
Despite my corporate success, my desire for creativity kept growing. In 2020 I quit my management job and dedicated myself to food photography which was my side hustle until then.
Currently I am living my dream life, dedicated full time to photography for clients, blogging and teaching. During my corporate career I mastered the art of training people for success. Now I support others to learn the skills I have acquired and to follow their dreams and passions.
What my students say about my courses:
"Daniela's instructions and examples perfectly illustrate and narrate how to create beautiful composition and achieve even and attractive lighting for styling food photos. Highly recommend this class to anyone, but just a tip – don't watch this class if hungry."
"I love these lessons ❤️ Great inspiration!"
"very helpful and clear explaining , I recommend it"
"Perfect place to get started, I went from knowing nothing about video editing to recording a "impresses my friends" cooking video in a day."
