Sophie Rouillon (b. Biro) was born in Paris and educated in both Paris and London. She works in the investment banking industry and moved to Hong Kong in 2004 after spending over 10 years in London.
Photography has been a passion of hers since childhood. She took photography classes/workshops at various venues, including Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London and more recently with Magnum Photo Agency in Hong Kong. She is a freelance photographer for the prestigious French Studios Harcourt in Hong Kong and a contributor to Getty Images. Her main focus is on portraits, street Hong Kong photography and enjoys combining both. She is also a keen travel photographer.
Hong Kong has been her home for the past 14 years and she is still very much inspired by the city and its contrasts. Although the city is busy 24/7 and overcrowded, Sophie feels there is always a sense of emptiness and loneliness while sprirituality is never far away. This is felt in the heart of the city but also in nature which covers over 80% of the Hong Kong territory. Sophie is also a sea lover and is currently exploring the ocean ecosystem and its invisible dimension in the Hong Kong territory.
Thanks to her work with the Studios Harcourt, she has a deep understanding of working with light and with physical features of models to show them at their very best. She is particularly inspired by the beauty embebded in every woman. We all have our strengths, scars and little madness no matter what life threw at us. This is what makes us so unique, so interesting, so beautiful.
