My name is Michael, but as you’ve probably guessed I also answer to the name Kid Circus. I'm a portrait and fashion photographer, lover of cakes and music nerd. I've had the privilege of growing up in London, and it's here that my creative outlet progressed from making music and DJing to photography.
Landscapes, architecture and street photography were my initial passion early on, and I’d think nothing of waking up at 4am to get that sunrise shot at [insert London landmark here]. Photographing people was something I thought I’d try just a handful of times, but unexpectedly I found I really enjoyed it.
Although I started out using digital cameras, a large majority of my work is now shot on film. I just feel the process means I have to be way more intentional with every click, and I believe the slower pace helps me to better build a connection with my subjects.
I am available for commissions and projects across the UK and beyond. In the meantime, why not follow what I get up to on my Instagram (@kidcircus)?
