Meet Photographer: Meg Webster

Today we’d like to introduce you to Meg Webster.

Meg, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I fell in love with photography in the darkroom. It was an incredibly stimulating space where I found two of my passions colliding–scientific experimentation and art-making. The first time I mixed chemicals and watched an image I had created slowly appear on a blank sheet of paper, it seemed like absolute magic…and I was forever hooked. Since then, I have had the good fortune of working and developing my skills alongside some of the best creative teams in the photo business. I owe a lot of that to living in Los Angeles… our city has an undeniable energy that attracts artists in search of wild inspiration, sharing ideas, and creative collaborations. I feel stoked to be a part of it all. In the last few years, my fascination with photography has shifted to the intimate relationship formed between photographer and subject. I absolutely love working with people, listening to each person’s unique story, and then creating a visual narrative together.

Has it been a smooth road?
As a creative professional I’ve had to become quite nimble, so to speak. There are so many elements that have to come together when producing a shoot, schedules can change, ideas morph and evolve, even mother nature has a say. Getting caught in a rainstorm can get pretty interesting with cameras and gear! There’s an element of spontaneity that is ever-present in the freelance photographer’s world. I’ve learned to adapt and trust in the creative process. Many times I’ve been able to use unexpected conditions to my benefit and the final photograph came out way cooler than I had originally imagined.

Has there been people or an institution that has played a pivotal role in your career?
During my time at Otis College of Art and Design, I was pushed to explore all facets of creativity and to dive deeper into the conceptualizing process of art-making. Moreover, I have been fortunate to work with some incredible artists including, S.A. Bachman, Larry Johnson, David Calicchio, Richard Johnson, and Martin Schoeller (to name a few). My passion for travel inspires me everyday. Sometimes all I need in the world is my car, a cooler of snacks, and my pup by my side. We are so lucky to live in California, incredible nature surrounds us on all sides! Jumping in the car and heading an hour in any direction always revitalizes my spirit and gives me that fresh perspective I crave and put into my work. Lastly, but certainly, not least, my sweet family gives me so much strength and support, they are a huge force in my life and they always motivate me to push the limits and keep on experimenting. I owe them an ocean of gratitude.

What kind of work do you look forward to most?
I love working on projects that are concerned, or perhaps, conscious of uplifting and elevating the subject. Everybody needs more of that good-good in their life, let’s bring it together.

I’m really looking forward to bringing my love of travel and my portrait/fashion photography together in a new way this next year. I’m so excited to share it and hopefully inspire others to get out there and experience this wild world for themselves. Jumping into 2017 with both feet!

What have been some of the most important lessons you’ve learned over the course of your career?
Trust your gut and know your worth.
