This Monday, RAW celebrated it’s 1,000th episode. I conceived and produced a photo shoot to honor the legendary wrestlers. Each of them had their portait taken to create a black and white portrait gallery on WWE.com. This was one of those projects where no one was able to be on set and I knew the time with each person was going to be tight. I provided the photographers with direction on how to shoot them and how I planned on finishing the images. It became an opportunity to be creative post-shoot by bringing consistency to the shots and delivering images that convey their personalities.
See the gallery at WWE.com.
