Sergi Arola is a celebrity chef based in Spain and the owner of 2-Michelin-star restaurant La Broche.
In his younger days, Sergi was both a musician and a culinary student and although music was his first love, cooking later became his calling. In 2000, Sergi opened his own restaurant, La Broche, that has since gained worldwide attention, garnering 2 Michelin stars and the National Gastronomy Prize. His second venture, the eponymous Arola, is located in Barcelona’s fashionable Hotel Arts, in the city’s Olympic Village.
Chef Arola has already achieved what many chefs strive to accomplish in a lifetime, yet he has no signs of stopping. While he's a pioneering presence in the food world, representing the second generation of Spain’s avant garde chefs Sergi is also a respectful admirer of his forebears, notably Pierre Gagnaire, Juan Mari Arzak and Ferran Adrià. Rebellious, anti-establishment and trendsetting in our own fields yet respectful of our sources of inspiration, Chef Arola and Gruppo Gamma have much in common.
Daniel is an established fashion photographer based in Singapore and Malaysia, and the key man behind One Click Wonders.
Being a musician, Daniel's photography journey started in 2005 when he toured Thailand as a drummer for a project band and doubled up as the tour photographer. Having worked hard and made many friends over the years, he's well-known in celebrity circles and his current works now span a wide spectrum, from weddings and portraiture to commercial and fashion shoots.
Passionate about bringing out the beauty of all things and capturing fine moments in time, Daniel views the photographic journey as one of unending exploration and adventure. Good photography isn’t always about rules and formulas and, as a piece of art, each photo is subject to different interpretations. Daniel and Gruppo Gamma share similar values; regardless of whether it's photographs or timepieces, we both work relentlessly to reach a balance of technical and artistic quality as we see it.
