ABOUT ME

Sometimes, a single photograph can tell an entire story or prompt a whole storm of emotions.

Welcome to my website, and thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about myself and the journey I've been on to get to where I am now. 

Born of German/Indian parents I spent my childhood in Germany. My first experience of photography was as a professional model. But in truth it was behind the camera where I always wanted to be and where, thankfully, I am today.

I am extremely passionate about what I do, and I hope you can see this from viewing my images.

My attention to the emotion and character of each person I photograph has become center to my work.

I truly believe my people skills, passion and above all, my eye for the light is what makes my images so personal.

Much of my inspiration comes from my vast experience of travelling which gave me the opportunity connecting across different cultures, art, people and fashion.

My sense of aesthetics brought me to photographing a huge variety of travel destinations, and some of the world's finest luxury hotels and resorts.

I'm feeling special, proud and honored to see my work published in magazines such as Vogue, Marie Claire and Conde Nast Traveller and many others. 

I call Paris my home now, but I'm constant on a worldwide road-trip for my clients, and enjoying every moment of it!

Amazing and inspiring new locationbeautiful natural light and discovering different cultures are the essence of my work.

I pinch myself every day as I can’t believe I have turned my passion into my ‘job’ .

 

I hope you enjoy this brief introduction and do please get in touch if you’d like to.

Donja.
