I affectionately referred to Sonja as the photo ‘ninja’ on the first shoot we did together called ‘Dirty Water’, due to her impeccable ability to shoot both stills and BTS without anyone realising she had done so (and so many too.) This is in small part due to her stature but predominantly thanks to her instinctive and ingenious timing and positioning. Having seen her work on other productions, I came away feeling bad that we didn’t have more exotic locations for her to shoot. Given it was a sitcom based in flatly lit offices and high rise flats, I don’t have many photos that does Sonja’s work justice so I have just attached my fondest photo. Last, but not least, Sonja brings a wonderful energy to set. She is as beautiful a person as her photos. If you do not hire Sonja, you are missing out.
