Sophi Rutherford

Sophi is a freelance photographer, filmmaker and climber. She is known for being an irrational dreamer and go-getter when it comes to impossible challenges. The holes in climbing pants, solid stem cams, checkered approach shoes and big dreams keep her charged and doing what she loves; belaying, climbing and documenting climbers and adventure.

Sophi loves finding new ways to document climbing, adventure and new experiences. With expertise in climbing and using rope systems, she uses her expansive knowledge to safely document athletes and adventurers doing what they love. Traveling places from the popular Yosemite Valley to the more remote areas of the Bishop Pass and Whitney Portal, Sophi strives to bring remote places and inspiring experiences to life. Introducing people to the idea of accomplishing their impossible is what drives her to create.
