Arnie (andphotos)

    I cannot remember a time in my life where
    photography did not capture my interest.
    You can say it started with my year in
    Viet Nam. Through the lens of my camera
    I saw a different world layed out before me
    that words alone cannot describe. My
    fascination with film, and capturing images I
    never wanted to loose, I knew that this was a
    start of a love affair. Experiencing what I had seen
    first hand, and being able to transition the
    images through film was an inspiration to do
    more, and see more.
    The birth of my son really took this love for
    photography to the next level. There was
    not a moment of his life that my wife and I did
    not capture his first steps, his falls, the mishaps
    that every parent takes a shot of. I know that my
    son wishes I did not have the embarrassing pictures
    of his mom giving him a bath in the sink. We all
    have them.
    I switched to digital in 2003 and have never
    looked back. The digital era has made my love
    for photography really grow and expand my
    horizons. More so than I ever thought possible.
    I have had numerous commendations throughout
    the years, and my work displayed through private
    and public venues. My collection is available
    online at
    Although photography is not a career, it has been
    a love and passion in my life, and has brought
    me the happiness that most people do not
    get to experience in a lifetime.
