Hi everyone!
My name is Mark.
Truth be told (honesty is a virtue in the Café, right?), I registered with the Café in 2016, but
never followed up with my new arrival introduction and posting in my favorite forums. I decided
at the time to wait till my photography travel schedule calmed down in order to do it properly, and now is the time!
Magic for me is a hobby, not a profession.
I am a photographer based in Los Angeles and I specialize in shooting home interiors, gardens, and travel
for magazines and book publishers. I just finished shooting two book projects, and I feel the time is right to connect with the Café....Finally!
I have been passionate about magic since my teen years, and love to perform occasionally to family and friends.
I am an avid collector of Magic Wagon, Tenyo, and magic books in general, and my favorite magicians are Steve Valentine, Gregory Wilson, and Bill Malone.
It definitely is a pleasure to be here with everyone!
Mark

Hi SoCalGuy, I'm NorCalGuy (well, some people call me Dave).

There's a lot of us here that don't perform for anyone other than family, co-workers and friends.

There's also others that are simply collectors, and just enjoy reading.

Welcome to TMC.

Jon and Dave,
Thanks for the welcome! Greatly appreciated!
Hey Dave,
Are you gonna change your user name to
NorCalGuy?
Ha.....has a certain ring to it!
Jon,
Are you a professional magician, or an avid enthusiast?

Thanks for taking the time and saying hello!

Like you, I'm an enthusiastic amateur, not a pro. But I haven't been at it as long as you have!

Welcome. Nice list of favorite magicians. I'm a huge fan of Bill Malone. In addition to being a great performer, he's an outstanding teacher in his videos.

Enjoy the Café!

Thanks imgic!
No one is funnier than Bill Malone!
You are right, his videos are insanely great.
I had the opportunity 6 years ago to hire Bill for
a private birthday party in LA.
Let me just say it was unreal!
A true pro and a gentleman!!!
