The Making of Natural Beauty, Episode 3/12: Model Meghan Collison by James Houston
Anything can happen on a live shoot and usually does! An explosion on the street outside Milk Studios, NYC forces the team to evacuate. The pressure is then on leaving the team with only with hours to pull off an entire production. You will also meet the God of Insects, Lawrence Forcella, whose beautiful butterflies become central to this shot with model Meghan Collinson.
‘The Making of Natural Beauty’ Web Series is a 12-part web series leading up to the launch of the Natural Beauty exhibition (at Milk Gallery NYC) and photography book by photographer James Houston. In this 12-episode ‘The Making of Natural Beauty’ Web Series, we will take you behind the scenes; not only in to the world of photography and how James creates these photographs, but also into his HEADSPACE, and what it takes to make a dream in to a reality.
