I consider myself an artist trapped inside the body of one who cannot paint...so instead, I model.
Who am I? I am a fine art and fashion model. I am a driven storyteller with 33" hollow legs. I am an avid reader, art appreciator, film fanatic, keen writer, old romantic and day dreamer. I am a big fan of cinematic style and conceptual art boasting narrative. I am motivated by creating a story through imagery, moved by the dark beauty of what's around us.
I am inspired solely by experience, emotion and the evolution of story. However, my photographic style idols include Brooke Shaden, Kirsty Mitchell, Gregory Crewdson, Rosie Hardy, Zemotion, Reylia Slaby, Joel Robison, Rebecca Bathory, Rodney Smith, Miss Aniela, Gregory Colbert, Von Wong, Annie Leibovitz and my favourite; Tim Walker, to name a few. I recommend seeking each of these artists to be wowed.
From 2013 to 2015, I was in the midst of a personal art project entitled the Dreamcatcher Project - an important aspect of my creative life and a series that shaped my career. You can read the interview with F-Stoppers, if you'd like to know more, by clicking here.
I also write a blog on my experiences if you'd like to follow my adventures: http://jenbrookmodel.tumblr.com
The Small Print:
When contacting me, please indicate the following to save on email confusion for us both: location, duration, compensation, idea/concept, dates you'd like to shoot and also if make up/hair/wardrobe is supplied. If you are not paying my full fee on the day, then please ensure I am aware of this before committing to a booking. I have a maximum 7 day full payment policy after our shoot unless otherwise agreed in advance. I am tax registered and will provide invoices upon request.
I hold a 50% payment request if a cancellation is made with less than 48 hours notice for local shoots (I am Manchester, UK, based). If I am on tour then a 100% payment will be required regardless of time to cover costs. Please note that if this is the second time you have cancelled or postponed our shoot at short notice, then a 100% payment will be required to secure a rescheduled date. If you require me to sign a model release form, I may need to change the agreed rates according to commercial pay. Please send a copy of this release in advance.
Now you have survived reading all that, why not drop me a hello? It's fun to share your world with new faces...
"We worked with the fabulous Jen Brook. Jen is the hardest working model I know. Totally committed to the shot and the moment, Jen’s professionalism shines through." : Damien Lovegrove
"Jen is by far one of the kindest and good-natured souls I’ve met in this industry full of some pretty overbearing egos. Her creative perspective and love for the art is the kind that awakens the desire to create in my own heart, and hopefully that will carry over to you all as well." : F-Stoppers
