Sofie is a freelance commercial photographer specialising in food and lifestyle subjects. She is currently based in Florence, Italy, and works in her studio, on location or in her native Belgium.
In the recent past, Sofie has collected an extensive editorial and advertising client list including: Treasury Wine Estates, Airbnb, Scotch&Soda, Architectural Digest US, La Cucina Italiana, Travel & Leisure UK, San Pellegrino, Frescobaldi Winery, Jolly Caffe, Cook_inc Magazine, Het Nieuwsblad, Grande Magazine, Nest Magazine, Gastronomia Toscana, Borgo del Balsamico and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

Sofie’s images capture the delicate and natural beauty of a subject. She has an innate ability to find the light, and can guide her subjects to deliver the photograph as she imagined.
As a sideline to her commercial work, Sofie shoots and writes for her blog ‘The Curious Eater.’ She travels around Italy looking for exceptional food and the stories behind it. Sofie and her blog have been featured in in Elle Italy, Il Corriere A Casa and DeMorgen Magazine.

Curiosity and creativity drive her. Happiness is what she wants to communicate.
‘I want people to feel cheerful when they look at my images … we are designed to smile’
