Farmboy rocks. I have had the pleasure of working with their team for a couple of years now, and every part of the relationship has been a joy. Not only is each and every one of them talented, passionate and funny, but they are genuinely fantastic people all around. Farmboy Fine Arts is an integrated art and design company that develops site-specific artwork and design objects for hospitality, healthcare, retail, casinos and corporate environments. But this isn’t the half of it! They are constantly coming up with fresh, innovative design products and ideas, always pushing the envelope, and challenging themselves and the world they are immersed in. My part in all of this is simple: I license my images for their use in all these crazy, beautiful, and inspiring ways. I get my images put in places I’d never dream, and used in ways I’d never imagine. This relationship encourages me to take photos when I don’t want to (this is a good thing), take photos in ways I wouldn’t normally (also a very good thing), and push me to be a better photographer, and more importantly, a better person.
Recently, Todd Towers, founder and president, was named a Recipient of Canada's Top 40 Under 40 for 2007. This is a first in the history of the program that a leader in the art and design field has been recognized for the award. Canada's Top 40 Under 40 is a prestigious national award program, which annually honors 40 Canadians in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors under the age of 40. In typical Farmboy fashion, when I congratulated Todd on this achievement, he replies with, “It was both humbling and super exciting to be a part of this years top 40. I am super proud of our team at FBFA and especially the Tim's (*Tim M. and Tim G.), as it would not be possible without them.”
Congratulations to everyone at Farmboy, and thank you for your friendship and inspiration. Like I said before, you rock!
