Review Mentions:

“The supporting cast is equally strong, particularly…Sophie Giddens’ Peter, who provide(s) most of the comedy” – Frankly, My Dear UK (Romeo and Juliet 2018)

“John Tueart and Sophie Giddens provide two of the most powerful and gripping performances that I have seen. The emotion and passion with which they deliver their characters are nothing short of sensational” – Number 9 (The Egoist 2018)


Photography Testimonial:

“We couldn’t be happier with the photos, the whole experience was so relaxed, fun, and organic – and we love the final edits” – Fine Comb Theatre




“My experience with Sophie was wonderful. She instantly made me feel relaxed and comfortable and made the whole shoot a lot of fun. She’s a real pro and knows the best way to capture your casting. I’m so happy with the shots I got too, she helped me highlight ones where I looked my real self, I want to buy extras!” – Leah Gray – Scaife


I went to see Sophie for new headshots in February, and I still get compliments on them!
I could not recommend Sophie enough. The shoot was so relaxed, and she really took the time to capture the exact style and feel that I wanted, whilst always offering helpful tips and making the experience super enjoyable!
The photos are of the highest quality and all so different. The system of choosing your favourite photos is very easy and straight forward also.
In all, I would definitely visit Sophie again, as I know I will receive the highest quality photos and have a great time on the shoot!
