Tommy Wind What’s On Cover Shoot

Post 49 of 64

For a last minute cover shoot of What’s On magazine, Tommy Wind and his team brought me in as “artistic director” for this photo shoot. I thought it was key to have a shot that represented the two major elements of his show, magic and music. The final shot that was chosen was an exciting action shot of Tommy holding one of his electric guitars, while “springing” playing cards at the camera. Below you will see some of the final selections, before the masthead and text was overlaid on the picture. Also, I have include the one page article from inside the magazine that chronicles the journey of Tommy and his family from Staten Island to headlining on the Las Vegas Strip.

Tommy Wind is a magician from Staten Island in New York City. He has performed in many of his own original shows, combining illusion with rock and roll music, in New York City, Atlantic City, New Jersey, and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tommy began his career when he was only 7 after his grandfather introduced him to magic by showing him the disappearing hanky trick. He has also appeared in TV shows including Criss Angel’s “Mindfreak” and NBC’s “I Do!”. He is now the youngest magician to perform in Las Vegas up to date.
In addition to his passion for magic, Tommy is also an accomplished musician, playing both the drums and the piano. Using these skills in tandem with his magical talent, he creates a spectacular presentation of illusions in a show filled with both Rock n’ Roll and class. Surely one of the newest and hottest up-coming stars, Tommy Wind’s broad style encompasses many different forms of magic, ranging from close-up and mentalism, to escapes and grand illusions, making him one of the most versatile performers today.


Douglas has worked on many shows up and down the Las Vegas strip. He has worn many different hats, from being a creative director, lighting designer, set designer, and production / technical director having worked with Wayne Newton, Frank Marino, Human Nature, and Recycled Percussion to name a few.
