Circusmash is an aerial arts and circus centre in the Midlands, UK, specialising in all kinds of circus arts training, from juggling and stiltwalking to aerial silks and hoop.
When I was asked by Liz to come and shoot with her and some of her training partners I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of the venue, but stepping through the door I instantly fell in love with it.
Based on a modernised Viking longhall concept, the Circusmash space is totally free from crossbeams, and super, super high. So high in fact that I topped out my backdrop stands with at least 3 metres to go, I couldn’t believe it. With absolutely no restrictions on height and space it really is an absolutely perfect venue to shoot in, which made setting up and lighting this small group shoot an absolute dream.
Nathaniel and Liz had a great 40’s sailor / navy theme going, and Charlie and Lisa nailed their period Flapper outfits and sports shots. All in all a really successful shoot, resuting in a easily a couple of my favourite aerial shots so far.
Honestly can’t wait to get back there to shoot more, such a great great space to work in!
