Client: No Mean City – NoMeanCity.com Project: Photograph Indy Urban Acres for a featured blog post Project Location: On Location – Indy Urban Acres Photography Type: Documentary / Portrait Execution: I almost peed my pants when No Mean City asked me to photography Indy Urban Acres! As a future homesteader and amateur gardener, I immediately jumped at the chance to walk around the farm and chat with the manager, Tyler Gough. Photography was a breeze! My only challenge was choosing a subject from the hundreds of species of flowers, vegetables, and animals on the property! My favorite was the black and white houdan chicken (second chicken pictured below with the afro).
If you have seen my homestead Instagram account (@sqftgrdn) you know how much I love showing off the beautiful (edible) things the earth provides us! Indy Urban Acres surpassed all of my expectations, from the bee hives and chickens to the eight acres of crops, all going back to local food banks! It is such a beautiful mission to give back to the community with what your community can grow!
