Absolutely beautiful, you've captured the inner souls of a lot of the folks. The first photo of Chris is wonderful.

More please.

There are some stunning photos on his page. I really enjoyed taking a look at them. If I were to have professional photos taken for my work, that is the style I would want.
Very cool!

Impressive portraits - and beautiful photography.

Would you also have some pictures showing how they affect their audiences?

Thanks Jonathan. As far as having photographs of how the audience reacts, I'm trying to stay away from that. These photographs are suppose to be about the moments between the performance. The moments when the magician is simply alone contemplating his/her own craft. They are meant to be very intimate photographs that confront the viewer. As of now, I don't plan on including the audience, however, since this is an ongoing photo series I may try it and see how it flows with the series as a whole.

Very nice photos!

Is there any way to slow down (or pause) the slideshow?

Thanks Bob!

I actually have my web people working on that as we speak. I'm going to eliminate the slide show, so that anyone who is viewing the site can just either click on the thumbnail or on the arrows and the photo will stay static on the page.

The website is running normally now and can be viewed without being rushed to the next photograph.

Thanks! Now I have plenty of time to snoop around Jamy Ian Swiss' bookshelf. ;)

(Why do I get the feeling that's not a facsimile Erdnase on Jamy's table?)

Your right Bob. It's not a copy. It's a first edition. It was only logical to have it in a photograph of Jamy.
