Cabinet portraits were a cultural phenomenon of the late Victorian age. Portraits of the upper classes were taken by established photographers, so that they could be swapped amongst friends and family as keepsakes.
At the Champagne Circus, we are privileged to have two of Helsinki's finest photographers Marco Melander and Saara Salmi and their Cabinet portrait studio; Atelieri O. Haapala.
For the Champagne Circus, Atelieri O. Haapala have a new Victorian themed Circus photo-set with and hand painted backdrop and costumes for you to have your photo taken in! And, if you feel the need, they have a selection of hats and various props, to make the photo feel even more authentic!
The photos from The Champagne Circus/Atelieri O. Haapala will yours to keep, and will also be part of a nation-wide collection of modern cabinet portraiture!
