Sophie's practice is a mix of portraiture, documentary and fine art photography. She has an MA in Photography, with distinction, from Sunderland University. Her first body of work Known/Unknown was exhibited in a solo exhibition at Aberdeen Art Gallery in 2010, and led to being selected as an Emerging British Photographer by the Canadian Publisher Magenta in 2011.

In 2016, Sophie was selected as one of five photographers for the NEPN DEVELOP Award.   In 2017, she received the Peter Hansell Scholarship from the Royal Photographic Society.    

Sophie lives in the North East of England.  She is available for portrait and documentary commissions, as well as developing and delivering participatory photography projects.
