Daniel Klajmic lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Early on, he traded in his dreams of a career in music to devote himself to photography. His job as assistant to photographer Luiz Garrido at the Casa da Foto Studio taught him everything a professional photographer needs to know, in his opinion. Today, despite being only 27 years old, he is already an established fashion photographer and has had images published in international magazines and publications such as Visionaire, The Sunday Times, V, Big, and ID magazine. Four years ago, he was contacted by Max Factor for their global campaign. He is also the youngest photographer represented in Pirelli’s photo collection at the Museum of Art in São Paulo.
| ||In addition to his fashion assignments, Daniel is very much interested in documentary photography. He has already done several documentary projects on Rio de Janeiro, with the latest about Rio and its culture, from beach life to funk music. The images have been shown in local galleries and published in a number of magazines. In another project, he experiments with digital video and he has just produced a fashion project using this media.|
Daniel emphasizes that to be a good photographer one must combine strong passion with focused and goal-oriented behavior. Only then can you achieve success. His goal is that his images will make a lasting impression for generations to come, that young photographers will be inspired by and learn from his images as he himself was inspired by the work of older photographers. His own favorite photographers are Man Ray and Nick Knight.
