Cool Vibes with Jess Brohier

"The craziest photo situation so far would have to be the time I went pretty far down into the underground train tunnels in my city to shoot and explore."

Melbourne based editorial, portrait and lifestyle photographer Jess Brohier has already shot for Last Daze Blog, Frankie Magazine and Sticks and Stones Angency. She also loves salted caramel milkshakes and lengthy walks through brightly lit cities. We wanted to learn more about her and her work.

When did you discover you want to become a photographer?

I think the exact moment was 2 and a half years ago, sitting on an air mattress in a midtown apartment in Manhattan, while editing one of the first shoots I'd ever done - in San Francisco the week before.

With which camera do you use to work?

My two main ones are my Nikon FM10 which shoots 35mm and my Nikon D610 which shoots digital.

What do you love most about your photography?

That I get to meet and work with all kinds of amazing people, all over the world.

Please let us know which are your major sources of inspiration.

Definitely conversations with friends, local art shows and artists, the Internet, travel, the list goes on.

Which people influenced your work?

Some of my favourite photographers are Can Dagarslani, Larson Sotelo, Petra Collins, Jo Duck and James Robinson, so sometimes I create some ideas and inspiration from their amazing images.

Please tell us about the craziest photo shoot you’ve done so far.

I've been taking photos for a few years and my content has changed over time. The craziest photo situation so far would have to be the time I went pretty far down into the underground train tunnels in my city to shoot and explore.

Where do you think will your creative journey take you in the next couple years?

A residency in New York if all goes to plan!
