Old brick warehouses. Unruly farmlands. String bands and soul food. Backyards and fireflies on a summer night. Pie. Friends. Downtowns small but bursting with art, culture and diversity. No place inspires me creatively quite like the urban south – an aesthetic with enough grit and charm to spread across our country, far outstretching the southeast.
Hello! I’m Casey Elia, the tiny photographer who brings you Urban South Photo! As a creative, I’ve learned that photography sustains the hearty memories of this life: happy celebrations, life-giving relationships and enjoyable travels. These are the honest, vivid experiences that make life full, worthwhile, and more importantly, worth remembering. Urban South Photo tells such stories visually, with lots of energy, color and enthusiasm. We’re really glad you’re here!
It’s our hope that beyond working with wonderful and creative folks through picture taking, Urban South Photo can also be a place of kindness, hospitality and participation. Stay tuned for happy ways to interact with us, use photography for your communities and simply be friends!
