Performers are a relatively new photographic subject for me but definitely one I’ve enjoyed. Unfortunately with the space limitations in the studio I’ve been hiring, I couldn’t make the most of Ryan’s acrobatic talents. Ryan is a former Cirque Du Soleil acrobat who has also worked with the amazing P!NK and performed in a show that is on my wish list to see, Broadway Bares.

When we were trying to organise this shoot, Ryan kept sending me images of props that he’d bought for the shoot, each getting more sparkly than the next. Needless to say we had a lot of fun with the shoot and I can attest to the fact that gold leaf is difficult to put on.

“Black and Gold” is this week’s download available on my website. If you click here you’ll go straight to the downloads page where you can buy all of the downloads released so far.
