One of my intermittent personal projects has been to photograph wrestling events taking place around Toronto. I photographed SMASH Wresting on January 22 at The Phoenix club. I’ve never seen anything quite like this – a packed house with a wild crowd, professional presentation and some wild and crazy events. I typically shoot from the side of the ring for these to avoid rope obstruction, but with a heavy media crew presence and a crowded house, decided to head to the balcony for his one. I think this was a good choice, particularly during the last event – the ladder challenge – when ladders, w wrestlers and furniture were flying everywhere.
