I was asked the other day by a parent if I minded them taking pictures and videos at birthday parties. I said, “Absolutely Not!” In my opinion, it is an absolute must. Every parent should take as many pictures and videos of the show as possible.
Why Take Pictures and Videos?
This is your child’s most important day. You want to create memories of their birthday, christening, first communion, or whatever the occasion is, that will last a lifetime. If you don’t, you won’t have any lasting images of their special day.
In my show I have the birthday boy/girl be my assistant and star throughout the show. This enables the parents to take tons and tons of pictures/videos. The show is about them, not me. I merely facilitate an opportunity for the child to be the centre of attention for the party. Pictures/videos are a way to look back after the day is over and enjoy over and over again the joy, fun, and excitement that everyone had.
The Benefits for magicians
Wouldn’t you like to share with the world some of those pictures and/or videos that you took? The best way to do that and help me as well, is to provide some that can be used on my website. I would be thrilled to use some of your pictures and videos on my website to show other parents what a fantastic time you have had and they can have as well if they book us for a party.
So, by all means, go SNAP HAPPY and take loads and loads of pictures during the show. You won’t regret it. In fact, you will regret it if you don’t take any.
Don’t forget to share them by sending some to us so we can share via our website with others.
