Mark Robson

I am a father of 2, IT nerd, organiser, performer, dancer, teacher, clown and a photographer specialising in photography of performance. I am based in Cardiff, Wales, although a van provides mobile accommodation when off working away with the circus.

My passion for photography has grown out of my passion for performance, more specifically contemporary circus. My path to where I am now is a slightly odd one. From wishing I could do that, to learning to juggle, to running a juggling club, to becoming a street performer, to working with and eventually joining the board of Nofit State Circus, to a need for photos of Nofit State Circus and therefore taking some photos.

Fast forward 14 ish years and I have published a book containing 13 years’ worth of photos of Nofit State; have taken photos for a whole host of contemporary circuses including Pirates of the Carabina, Upswing, Lost in Translation Circus and Nofit State Circus; have had photos on posters, in programmes, on buses, and in newspapers. Circus photography remains my passion and I continue to strive to take really great photos of circus.

If you are interested in using any of my photos or would like me to work with you on one of your shows/projects then please get in touch
