25 year jubilee

Jun 13

Twenty-five years ago in 1993 I started taking pictures in the circus. Several years later I ended up selling my first pictures. I did the math a couple of times but there is no way around it, this year I need to celebrate a quarter of a century in circus photography. Not bad for a young, vibrant 36 year old ;-). You might have noticed that this website has been renewed, I hope you like it. Feel free to follow my Circus Photographer activities on Facebook and/or Instagram.


Image Jury member in Girona

Feb 27

Piet-Hein Out was a jury member at the Festival Internacional Elefant d'Or de Girona. As part of the photo jury he was judging the esthetics of the circus acts. In this edition his particular focus was on the way acts pose an interesting challenge for a circus photographer. As many artists know circus photography is all about 'catching the exact moment'. The price of the Photo Jury was awarded to Audrey and Thomas (France - USA) for their Duo Trapeze act in which somersaults and other highly skilled jumps were performed at high speed.
