Sophie Elgort (b. 1986) is a fashion photographer based in New York City. She graduated from Brown University with a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature. Influenced by the artistic environment in which Sophie grew up (her father is a fashion photographer and mother is an opera director), she began snapping photos and directing scenes from a young age. Sophie’s body of work – predominantly shot in natural light – is charged with youthful spontaneity, and reflects her penchant for capturing vibrant, reportage-style photographs.

Sophie’s client list includes Teen Vogue, Clinique, Bloomingdales, Topshop, Tatler, Theory, Rent the Runway, Elle, La Perla, Buccellati, IBM and Procter & Gamble, among many others. She also photographs and edits Suits and the City, The Financial Times’ style page, which she helped create in 2011.

Sophie has guest-lectured on photography at the Rubin Museum of Art and Seton Hall University. Her work is represented in various private collections. When she isn’t behind the lens, Sophie, a former ski racer, is out skiing powder or spending time with family and friends.
