Sophie Callahan Photography

Categories: Photography, Art,

Great Totham,


My name is Sophie, I'm 26 years old, based near Maldon, in Essex and am passionate about both photography and horses.

I'm an equine photographer and travel across the UK to photograph horses and their humans at their homes or location of their choice.

I have ridden since I was 3 years old and always had horses in my life. I attended Writtle college, when I left school, and obtained a degree in Equine Studies. Like any typical horse fanatic, if you get me started, I'll talk horses forever, so moving on to photography…

I consider myself incredibly lucky to do what I think is the best job in the world! I have taken my two passions and combined them, allowing me to do something I absolute love. Hopefully my love for what I do comes across in my work. I previously worked in event photography for five years and have finally found what I feel like I was born to do.

I think the most important thing about my job, is to capture the horse that the owner knows. My clients don’t just want the horse to look ‘pretty’ and posed, they want their personality to shine through and they want to see the character, the best friend, that they know so well, and love. Above all else I want my clients to feel that unique bond when they see their images. The bond that gives us that warm feeling and that only a horsey person will understand, and this is what I strive to achieve through my work.

I’d like to thank all of my clients, and of course their equine partners, for being such fantastic models and making my job the best job in the world.
