Acrobats    Dancers    Fragments    Nudes    Performers    Rehearsal
My own circus background and love of acrobatics, acrobalance and aerial circus skills in all their various forms has found a new outlet in this series of photos.

I often work with professional and amateur acrobats, cabaret and circus performers. I seek to use light and shadow to emphasise shape, musculature and the human form and to explore the spaces around my subjects

I strive to recreate those rare moments of ease which occur during a performance at the same time as recording some of the contemplative approach which a performer must achieve during the endless hours of training.

I am interested in showing real people demonstrating extraordinary skills with consummate ease and naturalness. The results often show strength and ability in an atmosphere of calm control.
