Confetti Eddie: In the Studio

Some time ago, a friend of mine was doing a video series on interesting characters in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. For his first assignment it was a local illusionist who performs at burlesque shows at the House of Blues. It’s no wonder when he then asked if I’d like to tag along to take some photos, I said yes immediately.

Since there were so many great photos to share, I decided to turn this two-day shoot into a three-part blog. So scroll down, enjoy and stay tuned!

I was amazed to learn that using his creativity and engineering skills, he makes all of his own props and magic contraptions.

In case you didn’t already think an illusionist was an artist, Eddie has tons of works of art throughout the space. I was so inspired by all the paintings and sculptures. He even had a few cameras he made himself!
