Born in Buffalo, NY, Natalie's fascination with photography began at 13. As she felt herself pulled into the present moment inside each frame she shot, a special passion and inspiration formed. She pursued this love and graduated with a BFA in Photography and a minor in Graphic Design and Communication from Rochester Institute of Technology.
Natalie re-located to Los Angeles in 2003 and soon after, began her own commercial photography business. She had the pleasure of collaborating with clients such as YMI Jeans, Lip Service, Hautelook, AMI Clubwear, Mek Denim, Disney, Epic Records, Warner Bros. Records, ABC, and MTV, as well as shooting celebrity portraits of Tori Spelling, Denise Richards, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Sabrina Bryan, and Judy Greer.
Natalie Sojka (pronounced soy'-ka) has shot for Esquire Magazine, Alternative Press, Rolling Stone, Inked Magazine, and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
Natalie is most inspired when connecting with her subjects and capturing their true essence. She loves bringing all aspects of a photograph together with a focus on keeping things fun, organized and a commitment to capturing something well beyond your average picture. Her passion lies in photographing fashion, portraiture, bands, and underwaterscapes.
