“I met Sonja when she photographed me for a national paper. Her friendly, efficient and expert approach in trying circumstances (obstinate security guards and fading light) made me think she would be perfect for an advertising shoot. Since then I have commissioned Sonja to help with selling in a major direct-to-consumer financial service launch. Not only did Sonja source ‘real’ models who met the brief exactly but she exceeded our expectations with both the number and quality of images she provided.”

Richard Germain, AML Advertising

“Sonja is great to work with and her bubbly personality puts people at ease, resulting in brilliant and fun shots.”

Jenny Hodges, Assistant Picture Editor, Fabulous Magazine

“On any job, on any topic, in any location, Sonja is the consummate professional and an utter perfectionist in her drive to get the ideal image. All this and yet she is still able to make even the most onerous sessions fun and engaging for the people involved becoming as much an ambassador for the publication she is working for as for her own unique talents.”

Paul Myles, Editor of Sales Initiative Magazine

“I wanted to thank you so much for your creativity, generosity and time working with me and British Hospitality Association. Hospitality encompasses such a vast array of activities from reception to housekeeping, to food service and management. It’s hard to depict its variety in a photo. You delivered our brief perfectly. The most important thing for me is evoking warmth and friendliness and you’ve really captured that feeling in the photos.”

Ufi Ibrahim, Chief Executive, British Hospitality Association

“Sonja has worked for us over the last few years in London. Always a pleasure to work with. Enthusiastic, conscientious and her ability to get on with people, shows in the first rate images she turns in. She make’s the “group shot” an actual photograph, something different and unexpected. Nothing’s too much trouble and delivers on time. I can highly recommend Sonja for all types of photographic assignments.”

Alan Macdonald, Picture Editor of Scotland on Sunday

“Sonja is one of the best photographers I have had the privilege to work with. She has a rare talent to really capture the perfect picture, whether it’s to support a consumer PR news story or to support a business / corporate announcement. Her attention to detail, creativity and her eye for the perfect shot make her the first photographer I turn too for any of my photography needs.”

Shakila Ahmed, Communications Director, Travelodge

“Sonja likes people and people like Sonja. You can tell this in her photographs. She continuously brings a warmth to her photographs others do not. She is a joy of a photographer to work with. One that is always full of enthusiasm and ideas.”

Tony Bell, Picture Editor, Observer New Review

“Sonja is a highly experienced photographer with a wealth of experience working across all British national newspapers and leading magazines. Sonja’s work is always of an exceptional high standard, she never disappoints and what I love about Sonja is that I can call her at any time and she will always try and work around my schedule. One of the best photographers I have had the privilege to work with.”

Martin Carrigan, Deputy Picture Editor, LOOK Magazine

“Sonja is a delight to work with – she has passion, creativity and a determination to get the shot required. No detail is too small, and it is a pleasure to work with someone who truly loves what she does. I have no hesitation in recommending her.”

Deborah Castle, Picture Director at Grazia Magazine

“I’ll always have Sonja to thank after saving my bacon on a PR campaign. Despite it being a very last minute request, she took the job on and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Her solid background in press photography means she has a firm understanding what works editorially. As such, she needed minimal briefing and knew exactly what I needed. On the day Sonja was full of good ideas and produced some great quality photos – which wasn’t always easy when there were around 40 children running riot in a small room. Her personable nature makes her easy to work with and her attention to detail meant she was happy to do some post production work on-site so we could get the images out to media quickly.”

Jody Thorsby, Brands2Life

“I have worked with Sonja Horsman for more than 15 years on a number of different projects. Her professional approach means that working with her is a smooth and straightforward experience and a great photographer that makes the talent fell great and relaxed.”

Kevin Anstey, Picture Editor, The Times
