Farm Photography by Ottawa Editorial Photographer Matthew Liteplo
Organic looking photos for an editorial photography assignment of an organic farm. Hedgeview farms, just outside Ottawa, hosted me for an evening. Brenna is an amazing farmer, who makes it look easy with her relaxed attitude. The shoot was a dream. We explored the land, looked at her processes, and found the light. Brenna’s roots grew from her fathers Derry farm, but her enthusiasm grew into organics. I’ll say, she’s one of the most sincere people I’ve met in a long time. She never shy’d away from talking about the challenges that come with starting a market farm.
From a photographers perspective it was an easy day. Great location and people. The right wether, the right time of day. The still life photo we took pretty much styled itself. It’s easy when everything is so fresh and perfect.
You can buy yourself some of this organic produce at the Carp Farmers Market every weekend during the season.
Thank you Edible Ottawa for the assignment and the cover.
