Daniela Müller-Brunke was born in Namibia and raised in South Africa. After studying photography at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elisabeth, she moved to London to work as a photographic assistant for several years. She then moved to Berlin, here she works at the intersection of fashion, documentary photography, and social commentary dividing her time between London, Berlin and Africa shooting for clients worldwide.
She regularly spends longer periods of time in Africa to work, visit her family and to breath.
Daniela's work is very much influenced by growing up in Africa and travelling extensively as a child. She has a fine sense for lighting and feels equally at home shooting in a studio, on location or in nature. She often finds beauty in the ordinary, striving to find a balance between her roots and the world of fashion.
