Ready for some stunning fire photography? After looking at these fiery shots, you may be surprised to learn that Tom Lacoste isn’t a professional photographer. In fact, the 23-year-old has no aspirations to become one and is instead currently attending the Bordeaux Circus School in Southern France, where he trains in juggling, acrobatics and hand-balancing.
“Fire is my main subject, and it was my first love in photography because, at the beginning, what you see on the screen is nothing you could imagine at the moment when you're taking the picture,” says Lacoste. “Besides, I'm color-blind, and the natural colors of fire are easier to see for me than other hues of the spectrum.”
