I had the pleasure of photographing Gregg Tobo, a professional magician with Astonishing Productions, at this year’s Boulder International Fringe Festival. I was excited about the opportunity to photograph something different. When was the last time I photographed a live magician? Hmmm, let me think—ummm never! I will be honest, before the show I was a little dubious about the whole magic thing. But that all changed the minute Gregg began his tricks. I was blown away with wonder and amazement. There were multiple times during his performance my mind was saying, “Wait, how did he do that?”

Gregg is a talented entertainer and magician to the core. His Boulder Fringe Festival show was a combination of stories, audience participation and mind boggling magic. I will be the first to admit it, by the end of the evening I was hooked. Gregg convinced me, I am now a believer in magic!

As a magician, it is important to entertain and engage your audience. Gregg does this very well.

That's right, he is holding a vase of rice in the air with a knife. See—it is magic!
