My name is Daniela Contini and I a portrait photographer based in Kfar Saba, Israel. I am originally from Italy.
I started taking photography seriously when I realized that it was a passion I kept hidden for years. So I went to take lessons and attended the Galitz Photography School in Ramat Gan, Israel. Besides this school, I also learned from internationally known photographers like Sue Bryce, Felix Kunze, Richard Wood, and others.
One aspect of this art I am most passionate about is the opportunity to be in contact with people. I am good at simply and naturally creating a bond of mutual trust with the person I have in front of me, which allows me to put the person at ease and achieve natural and relaxed photographs. If we then add a good sense of aesthetics and a knowledge of figurative art, we obtain the perfect recipe for the photographs published on this website.
I like to “create” photographs with a painterly style. Before becoming a photographer I was a painting restorer, this gave me a good cultural background which certainly influences my photographic style.
I shoot in my studio, on location, or even at the client’s home, using both natural and artificial light.
