Stephen Rios The Illusionist
About this pro
i try my very best to connect with my audience and get them to really try and understand my work and what i am trying to get through to them. most magicians just want to get the trick out there and show off what they know. i love the fact that i am able to meet new people and connect with them on a much deeper level through the trick i am trying to do for them.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?i generaly tend to not go further than 20 miles away from my residential location and if within that area i will charge 40 dollars an hour. if a customer asks that i go beyond that ill charge a total of 60 to pay for extra materials and gas
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?i am currently a memmber of this online company that consists of 12 of the most brilliant minds in the industry and who each release their work to the public for purchase so i am constantly buying and developing new techniques from the greatest minds in magic.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?its a funny story actually, i was watching a movie called Now You See Me and i was just completely facinated with Dave Francos scene where hes throwing cards and a cop and hes actually defending himself with that method. that left me so impressed that the same day i went out and bought a deck to practice throwing cards. i actually got pretty good at it ad little by little, video after video i was led to learn tricks until i gained enough knowledge to start developing my own.
