Super stoked you’re visiting my little corner of the World Wide Web!
My name is Daniela - I'm an an artist and food is my medium!
As the name suggests, Waves in the Kitchen combines two all time favorite loves in life…all things food and surfing! Heaviest on recipes, sprinkled with waves, farms visits, travel, food wisdom, lots of colorful and especially purple veggies and more - it’s all about embracing adventurous living from the kitchen to the water… just like me!
I'm an original.
In the food photography & styling world, I do both. I have a studio in Venice, CA with a gorgeous inventory of props and backdrops, and whether you’re a chef, a brand, or a cookbook author/publisher, I can be your team and do it all.
I’m self-trained in everything I do: chef, food photographer, food stylist, and recipe developer. I’m not trained in a particular photographic or food style; I’ve arrived at my own. It’s why I’m unique.
I’m on a mission to help people see how sexy vegetables are—by sourcing the most colorful produce imaginable from local farm markets and emphasizing the beauty of real food in utterly enchanting food photography.
Daniela Gerson’s beautiful food reflects her incredible skill as a young chef who knows how to wow a crowd with her innovative and delicious dishes. Daniela brings not only a creative and fresh twist to her cooking but a huge amount of energy and sense of adventure. Working with Daniela is “delicious” not only for the hosts but for the lucky guests who get to enjoy her culinary skills.
