About me

 

Portrait photographer Jay Brooks originally studied Film & TV Set Design at Wimbledon College of Art but transferred his attention to photography after a road trip taking pictures across the USA. His original theatrical studies left a lasting impression on his photographic style and method of working. Jay’s keen interest in choice of location, acute attention to detail, storyboarding and use of props create unique environments for his portraits. His cinematic style and ability to draw a seam of, often dark, humour from his subjects has made him a popular choice across the worlds of advertising, TV, film, theatre and music. His characterful celebrity portraiture has graced the covers of some of the UK’s most respected publications including The Guardian Weekend Magazine, Sunday Times Culture and Time Out. Jay has a continuing relationship with BAFTA, having worked on the TV Awards in 2010; in 2011 he shot portraits of the UK’s finest Screenwriters to accompany a series of talks they were giving at The Barbican and for inclusion in the BAFTA archive. Jay’s also works regularly for The Old Vic providing promotional and poster images that appear across the national press and in tube stations and other sites around London. He worked on several shows in 2012 including Hedda Gabler, Kiss Me Kate and the award winning Constellations with Rafe Spall and Sally Hawkins. In advertising, Jay has shot campaigns for Adidas Footlocker, Sony Ericsson, T-Mobile, Southern Comfort and Red Stripe. Jay still finds time to work on his personal projects; recently completing a series on sea side Clairvoyants and travelling around the UK covering tradition-based Dance Events ranging from the conventional to the decidedly off-the-wall! Jay is also proud to have two portraits (Hayley Attwell and BAFTA screen-writer Peter Morgan) in the collection of The National Portrait Gallery.
