We had the good fortune of connecting with Daniel Sahlberg and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Daniel, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I did several interviews for national newspapers, radio, and television for this show.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
Along with “She Will Rococo You ” with artist Jesse Mockrin, who paints genderless naked humans. Since being in LA, among other celebrities, I shot the legendary soccer player “Zlatan Ibrahimovic”. Which was surreal to me and I’m not even into sports.
And I also shot Viggo Mortensen for his film Green Book sometime ago.
What is the important factor for your success?
I think success is more than having followers on Instagram. It’s a good tool, but I’m a social person and believe in personal contacts.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Stella’s bar and restaurant in Silverlake (for a beer),
Chateau Marmont’s pool area (the LA ambiance),
Pace in Laurel Canyon (love their pies),
Marvin on Beverly (super pasta),
The Last Bookstore (to find some cool books),
and ilCaffé in Downtown LA (a fun spot to meet people).
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Also, I would say the city of LA, which is full of sun, culture, and passion.
