Born of German/Indian parents Donja spent her childhood in Germany. Her first experience of fashion was as a professional model. However, she soon realised she’d much rather be behind the lens.
Donja’s attention to the emotion and character of each person she photographs has become centre to her work. Much of her inspiration comes from her vast experience of travelling; through the illusion of movement in her work she is able to ‘capture the moment’ in her imagery which is hugely inspired by her love of cinema .
It is through her extensive experience of travel that Donja has worked with many luxury hotels and resorts capturing their beautiful interiors and sumptuous food and drink
Donja’s numerous clients have included: UK & French Marie Claire, Madame Figaro, Italian Elle, Red Magazine, Conde Nast Traveler, International Vogue, Spanish Glamour, Monsoon, House of Fraser, Boden, Debenhams, Triumph, Canary Wharf, Audi, Ernest Jones, Nira Group (luxury Hotels), Diageo, The Savoy, Corinthia Hotels, Park Chinois, Dairy Crest, Dorchester Group and The Bodyshop.
