Allison Brooks made the move from Detroit to Brooklyn in June 2016 after a stint in Motor City as an intern for a photographer, where her aspirations for a role behind the camera branched into modeling.
Boyle reminisces about their first meeting: “I remember going into her studio for the first time expecting to learn about photography but instead she immediately asked me if she could take my photo. From that point on, every work day we had turned into a test shoot. I love being behind the camera just as much as I love being in front of it.”
Brooks’s passion for modeling was fed by being in front of the camera, all the while having an eye for the nuances of life on set from a photographer’s perspective. Boyle grabbed Allison for a round of photos in Bed Stuy where they messed with a few film cameras on to of the digital capture. Oh, and she did warn him that if there’s music on set, she will indeed be dancing. No complaints there.
