Circus: Aerial in the Park
Over the last few years, I've worked with a lot of different performers, many with a circus background. The industry is both physically and mentally demanding; circus performers constantly push the limits of the human body. Anybody in the arts will tell you just how important it is to have up-to-date photos and head-shots to get more work. Last Friday I did a shoot in Bushy Park with four aerialists to help boost their portfolios. Three of the girls (Jenny, Serena & Elisabetta) had come through Aircraft Circus's intensive foundation course, whereas Michaela has been performing for slightly longer. As you can imagine, I fired off quite a few photos over the course of the afternoon so here are some of my highlights...
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. I'm up at Edinburgh Festival for the next few weeks which will hopefully present some interesting photo opportunities. Maybe you're a performer and would like me to photograph your show? If so, get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org.
