ABOUT SOPHIE OELRICH
As a fashion and beauty photographer I am a visual storyteller for brands that make an impact while travelling. I don't think a photo is perfect until something affects me.
I get inspired by life. From travelling to Marrakech and Bali to cocktails and glasses of Verdejo on a Tuscany terrace in the sun. I believe that a photo is like a perfect glass of wine, where ingredients come together to form a whole and amplify each other.
I like to capture models in a natural way while telling a visual story through fashion. That is my mission and search between perfection and imperfection.
What makes me happy?
You see me most happy when I have a photography shoot in a beautiful location with natural light. I like wake up early in the morning and shoot the first rays of sun of the end of the day during the magic golden hour. But I also love to do a photoshoot in my own studio with my own equipment and a strong team.
"I don't design clothes. I design dreams."
That’s one of the things people like about me on set: Is that I always stay calm. A nice compliment. Trust in my work and the end result is important to me. I always listen to what the clients wants and make sure that I have a team of professionals working with me.
Over the years we as people have become more aware and there is for diversity in the fashion industry. Influence is a verb, but the way we influence is the actual challenge. My dream is to work for leading brands that create campaigns with impact.
