I am a food photographer based in Sydney with a Brazilian background and flare. After working years on the IT industry, since 2008 Paula has being focusing in her passion of photography and food. To match that passion she also completed her Diploma in Photography at TAFE NSW. Paula is a beginner cook who enjoys the challenges and the search of perfection. Daily, when not on assignment, you will find her at her kitchen developing ideas for her photographs. She sometimes blogs her experiences on her Cook&Click space. Bright colours are her signature but in 2014 she released a series “Food in Monochrome” where she showed ingredients on its raw form in beautiful lighting. Paula loves all aspects of photography and she has worked with major companies on corporate portraits, stock libraries, events, food-related events and others. And to be cliché, she likes to travel and when food, travel and photography meet she is in paradise.
I love saving a moment or a product and showing up to the best it can be.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I done lots of food photography and mostly they are successful because I the food make a impact.
