It’s almost a new month, and a new Model of the Month. Along with the likes of Ash Stymest and Luke Worrall, young British models are making a huge impact globally. Today we present Jake Cooper, now aged 20, born in Surrey but well-travelled.
At 6’2″ tall and and with arrestingly good looks, a smouldering sexiness behind the eyes and a very kissable mouth, it's no suprise that recent activities include a shoot for Burberry with legendary photographer, Mario Testino and a video with Ash Stymest.
His eclectic musical tastes stretch to Erykah Badu, Max Cooper, Dire Straits, Smoke Like a Fish, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Gil Scott-Heron, Slayer and The Collar Bones. There’s a fair chance you’ll have something in common.
He cites his favourite career experiences so far as “Going to Shanghai with photographer Kai Z Feng, amazing country and wonderful people. Also, Burberry of course, working with Testino and Bailey was an honour, true professionals and very warm."
By the way, the video with Ash Stymest and Leah Weller for Sheer Magazine is worth a look. Here it comes.
These days, he’s based in mid-Wales, on which he reflects “My home is now Newtown in Mid Wales, it's my escape when it get all gets to hectic, but at the same time everybody knows your business. Most of my mates back home are rugby boys, they try and try and bully but they know they’ll get a beating!!!
Interestingly, his favourite artist is German Expressionist, Egon Schiele, whose dark, erotic paintings often featured the naked body in strangely contorted positions. Or, as Jake explains it, "His work is noted for its intensity, and the twisted body shapes jutty physique. I love to draw people in an abstract way." For those unfamiliar with Schiele's work, here's one of his canvasses.
Jake clearly has interesting tastes, an intriguing personality, as well as the good-looks that brought him to our attention. We’re impressed with his intensity.
Look out world. It’s going to take him all the way.
