    Unless "high file" has some special meaning in a particular office (for example, important customers filed in a higher file than others), this is a mistake.

    1. It might be "high profile" meaning "imprtant".
    2. "Work on" = perform work in the creation of
    prized = valued; "sought after" = desired
    It should be "for the world's top photographers".
    3. Sophia Loren
    "reveled in her reputation" = "greatly enjoyed her reputation"
    "greatest sirens" = most attractive women
    "managed to maintain her modesty" = didn't have to get naked
