Drew Gurian Photography- Behind the Scenes with Denitia & Sene and Red Bull NYC from Drew Gurian on Vimeo.

I recently had the opportunity to collaborate on a very cool project with the elctro pop duo, Denitia & Sene, Red Bull NYC, and Colossal Media.

One of the portraits I shot of Denitia & Sene was transformed into a hand-painted, photorealistic 20’x40′ mural by the amazing crew at Colossal Media, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It took a three person crew of painters five days to complete the mural, and I can’t express how amazing it is to see in person.

Check out the video (shot by Andrew Tomasino) above to see a behind-the-scenes look into the shoot itself, as well as a time-lapse of the painting (shot by Brian Von Glahn).

Thanks so much to the crew at Red Bull, my entire team on the shoot itself, and to Colossal Media for making this project so much fun to be a part of.

I first met Rashard, aka- Cakes Da Killa, late last year when I was photographing him for Red Bull Sound Selects.  I shot a quick backstage portrait of him, and then witnessed one of the most animated and engaging live shows I’ve seen in awhile.  We’ve been in touch since then, and I’ve been trying to pin down some more time to produce a more well-crafted shoot with him.

Red Bull reached out to me the other day, said they were working with him on his new mix tape, and wanted to to shoot some new promo photos with him to promote the new songs.  Of course, I jumped at the opportunity, and here’s a bit of what we shot in my loft space, Studio 403, in Brooklyn.

Scroll down for a quick BTS video of the shoot, shot by the amazing Eduardo Angel.  Thanks also goes out to Nick Rapaz for lending a hand assisting and being the designated cereal pourer…
