Award-Winning Fashion Photography Graduate Continues to Rise

From the age of fourteen, Sophie Webster, Fashion Photography graduate, knew she wanted to tell stories through pictures.

Sophie told us: "I’ve never been interested in how a camera works. All the mechanics and the technical side of it hold no interest for me at all. I’m driven by ideas and, as a storyteller, have always wanted my work to have a rich narrative running through it. I was lucky. I found very early on what I was good at and what I loved.”

It was this mind-set that led Sophie to study Fashion Photography, where it didn’t take long for her to make her mark. At the end of her first year, she won a prestigious competition run by Sony and House of Holland, and since then hasn’t looked back.

She added: “I graduated in 2018 and have continued to build my career in fashion photography while at the same time working as a creative director with a London agency, helping clients in London, Europe, and the Middle East bring their stories to life - including running a photoshoot in the Shard.

“I’ve loved seeing my creativity come into fruition in the real world and seeing clients become as passionate about my ideas as I am. I’ve learned how to manage copywriters, marketers, graphic designers, videographers and liaise with those working in business development.

“Falmouth was such a good breeding ground for experimenting and collaborating with others - it really helped me develop my own personal style and approach.”
