Thosh Collins focuses on Native American Talent

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown January 7th, 2014 Last Updated on: January 7th, 2014

Thosh Collins has photographed Hollywood stars, New York Fashion Week designs, and Miss Universe pageant contestants, but has not yet been recognized in the mainstream media.

In fact, many Native Americans like Collins struggle to become visible despite major achievements. But he set out to change this reality in 2006 while living in Los Angeles.

“I started doing headshot photography and assisting in shoots. I started meeting other [Native] people in the industry and wanted to help promote them,” he said. “There’s so many people that played a role in making me think I need to put us on the map more.”
