Born in the USA, Sheila Rock has lived and worked in London since 1970. She started photographing in 1979, and worked in the entertainment and music industry throughout the 1980s. The magazine The Face launched her career. Since then she has continued to work in the music business, photographing artists, like Placido Domingo, on a regular basis, and working for the Royal Opera and Royal Ballet in London.

Her work can be seen at the National Portrait Gallery, London. She has recent portraits of British athletes that are part of the permanent collection. She has participated in the recent Icons of Pop exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery, and also was part of a group show at the Proud Gallery, London, called The Photographer's Cut 1960-2000: Rock 'n' Roll Years.

In December 2001, she had a show at the Special Photographers Gallery of her horse pictures. In 2002, she will participate in the Kodak Rock Photography Collection that will commemorate the best 500 Rock Photographs of this decade and this collection will tour America for 2 years in ten cities.
