- Portrait photographer Jay Brooks originally studied Film & TV Set Design but truly fell for photography after a road trip across America in the mid 90’s. His original theatrical studies have, however, left a lasting impression on his photographic style and method of working. Jay’s graphic, cinematic style and atmospheric lighting has made him a popular choice among clients including BAFTA, The BBC, Vanity Fair, The National Theatre, Sky TV and The Guardian. He is also proud to currently have four portraits in the permanent collection of The National Portrait Gallery in London.

Jay Brooks’ work, with its distinctive sense of humour and atmospheric lighting, is a popular choice with celebrities - from Hollywood stars Alicia Vikander and Ben Kingsley to Great British export James Corden and national treasure Nadiya Hussain.
He is a portrait photographer with keen attention to detail and a unique cinematic style, learnt from both his study of set design and his vast experience within the worlds of film, TV, theatre and advertising.
Jay has a great continuing relationship with BAFTA, as well as having his work gracing the covers of publications such as The Guardian Weekend Magazine and Vanity Fair on a regular basis. He also frequently works for The Old Vic and Ambassador Theatre Group to produce their promotional and advertising shots. Four of Jay’s images are also in The National Portrait Gallery collection.
