Hello everybody! I'm super excited to be the first lucky person to be working alongside Haynet on the Business Showcase feature and I'll be with you all week long!
I thought I'd start by telling you a little about myself and what I do...
My name is Sophie Callahan and I'm a specialist equine photographer. I live in Essex and I work all over the UK, photographing horses and their humans and also working with other small rural businesses, helping create images to strengthen their brand and marketing efforts.
In addition to this, I'm a blogger and vlogger of all things equine and country. I post blog posts multiple times a week and I upload a weekly vlog every Monday. So there's plenty to take a look it if you're feeling nosey and want to find out more.
I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to do the best job in the world. I absolutely love what I do and I think it's this passion that keeps me motivated and excited about every new project.
On a more personal level, I'm twenty-nine (the big 3-0 is fast approaching) and live with my boyfriend of fourteen years, Sam and our delinquent Cocker Spaniel, Barney, in Chelmsford, Essex. I like milky tea, watching Friends, scrolling through Instagram and going out for dinner.
Sam and I will be getting married in June, so I'm currently juggling planning a wedding with running a business, which is an interesting challenge.
I've had horses in my life since I was just three years old and am currently horseless for the first time. Hopefully this sad situation will be rectified post wedding.
My passion is for coloured ponies of the cob variety... either hairy or hogged, I love them just the same. But I truly enjoy meeting and photographing such a wide variety of horses. I've photographed all shapes and sizes, from Miniature Horses to Shire stallions, and everything in between.
I'll be chatting to you later on in the week about some of my all time favourite shoots, so be sure to keep an eye out for that. There are some corkers, including an equestrian stunt team and their movie stars of the horse world, a very well known French horse-whisperer, an Olympic dressage superstar that you might recognise and more.
I'll also be offering a very special photoshoot discount, exclusively for Haynet readers, so definitely don't miss that!

Pop in and say hi at any of the above links and let me know you found me through Haynet! I’d love to chat and I look forward to bringing you a variety content over the course of the week.
