Hi there,

I'm Dena Shearer, a food photographer in Dublin, Ireland. I travel around Ireland and beyond to work with my clients. I have been taking photographs for nearly 20 years. Photography is my passion, my whole life revolves around it!

In 2008, I graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (Majoring in Photography) at Rhodes University in South Africa. I then moved to Ireland where I ended up spending 3 years working managerial roles in the food and hospitality sector.

I left to travel to Australia and New Zealand and worked as a photographer on Daydream Island in the Whitsundays. (What a job!) When I came back to Ireland I started an extremely fulfilling job managing a successful artisan café for 8 years, all the while working on my own photography business.

I am still running a successful portrait and wedding photography business but after working for two years as an in-house food photographer and social media manager, I developed my love for food and lifestyle photography and wanted to create a new business to work at this...

I founded Luvly Content; a food and lifestyle photography business that specialises in shooting high-end imagery for brands print, website and social assets. 

My areas of expertise include food, lifestyle and portraiture.

I work closely with business owners to understand their brand values and create the best look and feel that suits their business. 

Feel free to contact me to request a price brochure and check availability.

I hope you enjoy my work. I look forward to working with you soon.
