I am Daniela, a photographer from Sydney, Australia. For me Photography is an outlet that lets me unwind from everyday normal life, and lets me focus on something creative. As a landscape and travel photographer, I can explore new places with photography as a goal.
My husband and I have been fortunate enough to travel a lot lately and this has allowed us to experience and photograph some of the most iconic locations in North America, such as the Colorado Plateau and the Canadian Rockies. But I am not limiting myself to landscape photography, I am fascinated by the ancient culture of Mexico and Peru, and I am not shy of a challenge. I like to take genuine portraits of people in our travels, I even tried Street Photography in Cuba.
Closer to home, I like to explore the unique Australian landscape and share some of the best experiences we’ve had recently, such as trips to Top End (NT) and the Blue Mountains (NSW).
With a background in architecture, I am now surprised to find myself looking at architecture in a different way, from a photographer's point of view. On the other hand, I think that the 'architect's eye' gives me an edge I can use in my photography . Nature is amazing, but cityscapes and architecture are equally fascinating! To me at least.
Thank you for taking the time to share the adventure with me and I am happy to share with you the story behind my images. If my photos inspire you in any way, please leave me a note in the contact section.

For the majority of my work, I use a Nikon D90 camera and a 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G kit lens. For architecture, an ultrawide 12-24mm f/4 and a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 provide the added range and consistently high-quality output demanded by this challenging topic. Finally, for portrait shoots I will typically use a 35mm f/1.8G lens, to soften out the background and features, and create a beautiful result every time.
My camera bag is my backpack and, well, my husband will carry all the rest :-)
