David Arnold Mar 14, 2024 12:15 PM

I create unique travel, experimental, and landscape photographs for environmentally and culturally conscious fine art collectors and enthusiasts. 

I began the pursuit of photography as a means of discovery into our world. I am committed to photography's mission to inspire and reveal the extraordinary in ordinary places. With over 40 years of experience in photography as a photographer and photography educator, I've photographed people, landscapes, and architecture on all seven continents. 

Each photograph illustrates my visual fascinations with light, color, shapes, forms, and the beauty which hides in unexpected places. 

My photography has been published and exhibited internationally in numerous venues. I've received the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for my photography book, Situations, and has taught photography and art at multiple levels including in the MFA Graduate Photography Program at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. 

My photography is featured in two additional domains: 
•  davidarnoldphotography.com showcases the landscape, travel, and experimental photography. 
•  davidarnoldphotographyplus.com is the home of The Experimental Condition, a web blog presenting new approaches to photographic image-making. Consider subscribing to The Experimental Condition.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.

Who knew?

Louise Johnson, retired HS District Superintendent, studied as a full-time student at the California College of Ayurveda in Nevada City.  “I first came to Ayurveda a few years ago when the overwhelming stress of my job as superintendent got to me,” Louise says. “My blood pressure was 180/120. This ancient wisdom for modern health taught me how to manage myself and my health so that I could truly enjoy the last years of my career with the joy and energy our staff and students deserved…” [quoted from Lorraine's Lowdown, TheUnion, February 28, 2020.]
