Aerial Kaleidoscope: Stunning Aerial Arts & Pole Photoshoots Done Underwater & At Unique Locations In Singapore
The sky’s the limit when it comes to aerial arts, a dance form that involves movement on apparatus like silks, hoop (lyra), trapeze, and corde lisse (smooth rope). Along with pole dancing, this demanding hobby is often done high off the ground, requiring a good sense of strength, balance, and control.
If you’re among the many who’ve fallen in love with aerial arts whether decades ago or just during the ongoing pandemic, why not mark your dedication with a professional photoshoot?
Aerial Kaleidoscope started as a means to celebrate the love for all things aerial through aerial arts-themed stickers, holographic pouches, and cotton tote bags sold through their Etsy store. Soon after, it also began to offer aerial arts and pole photoshoots at unique locations.
While such photoshoots are typically done in a dance studio or photo studio setting, the homegrown company chose to specialise in outdoor and underwater shoots. A quick glance at their well-curated social media accounts show that they’ve done aerial photo shoots at an industrial building, inside a gritty warehouse with exposed beams, against bright blue skies, and even on an abandoned railway on the green corridor.
Working with experienced local photographers such as Frank Foo and Drewperspectives meant that the photos were all well taken and beautifully angled. Plus, rigging and safety checks are all taken care of by the team, so you just have to turn up in your best outfit and figure out your favourite poses!
True to its tagline “The pixie dust that makes you fly”, some of Aerial Kaleidoscope's photos are beautifully edited to add a dramatic flair to the image. For instance, they’ve got aerial hoop shots edited to look like you’re floating off from a bunch of colourful balloons a la UP the movie.
During Valentine’s Day, they also offered a bright red, heart-shaped aerial hoop for posing on, along with matching white, pink, and red heart-shaped balloons. Those who prefer to keep things simple can choose to shoot in their indoor photo studio, which has a pastel pink, sprinkle-filled backdrop (the last we checked).
Among their many concept shoots, the most unusual had to be the underwater ones, which had the effect of making one look weightless. Popular among pole dancers, the underwater shoots allowed them to look like they’re moving effortlessly, with both hair and skirts floating around.
As their shoot concepts change periodically, a good way to stay updated is to follow them on social media.
