To create the photos of the famous saloon,  he had to coordinate 11 talent, one NBa superstar and a former NBA star, priceless paintings, nine unique costumes and 55 taxidermy animals. he also had to deal with some crazy logistics to get all his shots. The assignment was shot over the course of four weeks with each individual element of the final image  photographed independently and composited together to create the final scene.  You can  get the full effect of his work here.  See more in the New Work Section of Crisman's site, and read his blog to see the behind-the-scenes here.
