From a very young age, Arni has had great admiration and respect for the great outdoors.   Since his retirement a few years ago, he has been able to spend the time to improve his photographic skills in the field and in the digital darkroom.  As an award winning wildlife photographer, naturalist and conservationist, he is proud to have had his images published in conservation-themed, international journals including the prestigious Birdlife Australia, Wild Seed Project in Maine, National Audubon Society and Canadian Geographic.


His goal is to tell Nature's story by capturing unique one-of-a-kind images that will resonate with the viewer, stir the soul, invoke an emotion or perhaps stimulate a memory.  The final compositions capture a fleeting moment, one that portrays the beauty, simplicity and fragility of nature.”
