Video: Jake For APCY

4 January 2013

In another preview of our latest issue ‘A Place Called Youth’ we’ve decided to share with you a rather wonderful video, shot by Cecilie Harris during her editorial shoot with our cover boy Jake Cooper (Select Model Management). In the video Cecilie captures Jake as he is along with his effortless amount of ‘cool’. We love that he comes complete with scabby knees from skateboarding (yup we told you he was cool). Although don’t be fooled, he is as much a classic beauty as a cool kid, Jake has appeared in campaigns for British brand and fashion powerhouse Burberry.

The editorial was a chance to get to know Jake as he comes. Shot at his home in London, we meet the real Mr Cooper. As well as being very artistic (check out one of his beautiful paintings in the new issue) we must mention that Jake is also very into his music.

A few weeks ago we posted some of the images from Cecilie’s editorial, so if you didn’t get the chance to see it then go and check them out here. However if you want to see her photography of the lovely Jake in all its printed glory then make sure you get your hands on one of our limited printed newsstands copies.
