A kind of magic

Something a little different for this blog entry.,a shoot with illusion act High Jinx. Comprised of Michael and Tamsyn.
I've known Michael for quite a while and this is the second set of publicty stills Ive done for his act,this time with new assistant Tamsyn. You-dear reader-may have seen them on ITV show Penn and Teller "Fool Us", I did and was suprised as I didnt knnow they were going to be on!
Most magicians PR shots are cheesy and boring ,so I try to inject some creativity into High Jinx's shoot. This was shot without flash to get the shadow effect.
  I make them perform their acts almost,in the lock up where they store their props.Makes things less static.
 The monster eyes were a little sensitive to my lights so we had to work quick on this shot ;)
 Fire shots are always tricky, especially when Michael has to wait for photographer to neatly frame a shot whilst his tongue burns! Thanks Michael lol.
So hopefully when they are headlining Las Vegas they'll hire me to be their in house photog! Until then they
are doing a Summer season in Blackpool this year haha, check their website link at top of this blog.
