For the past few years, I’ve done New York City themed photo shoots with some of the Superstars when they are in for SummerSlam. This year, I decided to do a night themed shoot in Chinatown. Photographer Andrew Boyle and I scouted some of the quieter streets that would give us good variety and we worked out the lighting direction to hit that vibrant nighttime feel. All of the colors and tones are in-camera settings and lighting, not post-production.
All three of the women got ready at the 50 Bowery Hotel then set out to shoot around Chinatown. E! Total Divas and WWE.com Video came along to cover the photo shoot. One of my favorite spots was on Doyers Street. It’s the best little street in Chinatown. The entire shoot was exteriors except for a few shots we did inside the legendary Nom Wah Tea Parlor. The shoot went super smooth and we accomplished a gallery of 30 photos in just under 2 hours.
Below are some of my favorite photos from that day. See the full gallery HERE.
