I met Alex Farnum about three years after his career as a photographer was already taking off.
Although Alex was pretty new on the scene, I was immediately impressed with his book and made a point to keep him on my radar. There’s so much warmth and richness to his photography whether he’s shooting landscapes, food, lifestyle or portraits. His portraits are painterly, his food is luscious, and his lifestyle images make you wish you could jump in the photo and be part of the fun.
Alex’s blog is interesting too and it gives you a glimpse into his recent commercial, editorial and personal projects such as series of portraits for US Trust and a personal project called Faces of the American West. I appreciate that Alex gives the reader a short synopsis of the project, how it came together and folks who contributed to the effort.
Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to work with him in the near future. In the meantime, I’ll continue relish his photos online.
