Bendy girls with ropes and chains!
Image Workshop had a great time creating these promo
portraits for alternative circus company the Damaged Duo. These two talented circoarts performers do things in their acts
usually not attempted by women: intensely demanding physical stunts
hanging from straps and chains that push the limits of strength and
Aerial acts were shot on location in a vacant warehouse. We used Broncolor lights for fast recycle time and
lightning-quick flash duration. Hard cross-lighting highlighted the shape of each aerial pose while a soft fill light
ensured the all-important facial expressions were visible. We also set up a mini headshot studio in a corner to capture promo portraits in hair & makeup before each act commenced.
A second photoshoot was set up to capture the duo on the ground to promote their solo contortion/handbalance and juggling acts.
