Sophie captures the essence of media art not so much as an objet d’art, but as an experience, an interaction, a unique moment in time and a relationship between participant and artist. Her compositions transcend the ethereal beauty of exhibited and performed art pieces, while providing glimpses into the multidimensional and multifaceted nature of media art.
As a testament of time, her work creates a lasting legacy that echoes and augments the intrinsic value of the art work displayed, while it speaks of its mediated aesthetic as well as myriads of possible audience reactions. Sophie le Roux's work excels through her unique artistic vision, her sensitivity for atmospheric characteristics and nuances in momentary, yet timeless beauty.
Oliver Gingrich, Artist
Sophie le Roux has documented and assisted Sophie and I on a wide number of projects which range across live performance, social events, intimate settings and staged photoshoots. She is someone we wholeheartedly trust documenting ephemeral moments and to be honest our go to for any photographic work. Sophie listens and has a particular eye and approach that suits both tender and fast paced people contexts, never becoming an obstacle to activity but easily moving through a situation to capture unique, engaging and atmospheric shots. Sophie is very easy to work with, professional and quick to reply or send material back. I would recommend her to anyone needing either/both documentation and creative interpretation of live moments!
Kerri Jefferis and Sophie Chapman, Artists
I have worked with Sophie twice in the past year on my solo show. I truly enjoy working with her; she's a sensitive, gentle and humourous presence in the rehearsal room. And I admire the photography she produces: it's beautiful and encapsulates the project.

Sophie’s photography gets to the truth and intention of her subjects. Through her incandescent documenting of live music, live art and exhibitions, her finished stills bolster the progression of the artist and the retrospective success of their event.
Eddie Sellers, Writer and Theatre Director
Sophie works with a quiet precision. Her receptiveness to the subtleties of ambience results in those evasive aspects normally known only to those in attendance being unveiled with beauty and integrity.
Alice Ashton, Urban Anthropologist and Performer
I have worked with Sophie five times over the last two years. Each time she has delivered stunning, sensitive production and promotional images that capture the individual essence of my various projects.
I use her photos to promote my work to audiences and programmers internationally. She possesses the ideal combination of professional and personable — a terrific artist to collaborate with.
Haley McGee, Writer, Actor, Voiceover Artist
Sophie has documented and photographed numerous of my creative projects over the past four years and I could not recommend her services enough. The documentation of my unrehearsed live projects rely on a photographer who can remain adaptive, flexible and communicative and Sophie has proven to be just that. She has been extremely attentive to the needs of each individual project and has managed to capture atmosphere, people and time itself through her precise and unique eye.
She comes into a project with skill, creativity, and a great sensitivity. She has shown great professionalism throughout the whole process and on each occasion promptly returned a set of photographs that had been stunning and clear, catching those important details easily missed by many. A wonderful artist to work with.
