Drew Gurian is a New York City based freelance music and editorial photographer. When he was 15, he was given a Pentax Spotmatic and started taking horrible photos for bands who were kind enough to give him passes to their shows.
Over time, his work improved, and he went to get a BFA in photography and graphic design. He has interned for two major NYC photographers- Joe McNally (Nat Geo, Sports Illustrated, LIFE) and Danny Clinch (Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair).
That internship led to a job with Joe, as his first/lead assistant, a position which he has held since 2008. His travels with Joe have taken him on assignments across the country, and globe, and he\'s logged well over 200K miles on Delta alone since working with him.
In his spare time, he works with musicians, record labels, music festivals, editorial publications and ad agencies. In 2009, he won Billboard\'s \"Year In Photo Contest\", and was published in both Billboard and PDN magazines.
More recently, he received a photo credit in the July, 2010 issue of National Geographic Magazine.
