I would love to hear from you!

I am an Eastern Cape based photographer who specialises in story telling through photography. I would be lying if I said that I have been passionate about photography since I was a young girl. But I have always loved stories - reading stories, writing stories, telling stories, acting out stories with the help of my dress up box. 

I discovered the beauty of telling stories through photographs when I studied photojournalism at Rhodes University, and I've learnt that this documentary style of photography goes further than just news reportage. When I photograph a wedding, I'm telling the story of a couple's special day, so that they can show their children and keep telling the story for years to come. When I photograph a children's home, a luxury lodge, an adventure brand, a clothing line, or a family picnic, I'm telling a story because, in the words of Madeleine L'Engle; "Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving." 

If you would like to work with me, please let send me your details in this form or email me on sophiesmithphotography@gmail.com. Please feel free to drop me any thoughts, questions or ideas. I love creative collaborations and getting to know new people so please don't be shy!
