My name is Corina Daniela Obertas. I was born and raised in Romania, on the Black Sea Coast and moved to Italy in 2003. I inherited the passion for photography from my father. I have learned to study light since I was 10 years old, behind the lens of a Leica M3 camera, spending hours in the darkroom. From my father I also inherited the passion for food, animals, and nature, letting myself be enchanted by beauty and silence.
I took the courses of the Academy of Economic Studies of Bucharest and received a 5-year degree in accounting and business management. After university I managed my real estate agency for several years but the great passion for photography and digital arts became stronger with the passage of time. I followed many live and online courses and specializations, mainly for food / commercial photography (Karl Taylor Education school and Photigy) transforming my passion into lifestyle and profession. In 2020 I followed Seeing Through Photographs course organized by Coursera and some courses of MoMA art museum in New York City.
I love to experiment and create. Creativity is what makes me happy. In addition to food and cats! I firmly believe in the transformative power of photography and its ability to simplify communications. Like an experience which causes a shift in a viewpoint. I love to tell stories using the light.
I work as independent food photographer in Rome, Italy. My work was awarded with the first and second place to a national photographic contest and I also participated to several exhibitions in Rome. I develop my digital art and video skills. I am tireless, very malleable and put my soul into everything I do, being able to turn briefs into beautiful photos. In any situation I do my best to find the perfect solution for you.
