Choke Holds and Hair Spray

I think I've found my new favorite thing to photograph. I thought shooting drag shows, porn conventions, muscle competitions and beauty pageants was fun, but that was before I discovered Women of Wrestling at the Eastside Cannery last month. Las Vegas Sun reporter and journalistic kindred spirit Andrea Domanick agreed. I think we stayed for almost four hours, hanging out backstage with the ladies as they prepared their hair, makeup, costumes and various persona for the ring. I took portraits and Andrea interviewed them, in character and out. These ladies are not only beautiful, they are amazing athletes with unbelievable commitment, drive and raw talent.

Here's the Las Vegas Weekly story and more photos of beautiful lady wrestlers.
