I am an architectural, interiors, commercial, and fine arts photographer based in Chilliwack, one hour east of Vancouver, British Columbia. My clients are located throughout the Fraser Valley, BC, and across Canada, and my fine art images are in homes and offices around the world. For over 30 years I have been crafting images with meticulous attention to quality and detail. 

You're passionate about your business, the spaces you've created and the products you make. I am passionate about the photos that I deliver and I will work closely with you to understand your needs, wants, and vision, resulting in images crafted to strengthen your brand.

My interest in photography goes back to the 1970s when my older brothers had darkrooms in which I spent much time processing black and white prints. Eventually creating my own darkroom I experimented with processing colour prints and transparencies. After college I started a career in prepress production working with large process cameras that were two rooms in size. 

Being a photographer I naturally gravitated towards large format photo reproduction, operating Hell, Crossfield, and Dainippon Screen drum scanners. I would eventually teach prepress production and drum scanning at Vancouver Community College. Once the digital age came along I became the Director of Information Technology for the largest publisher in Western Canada, working closely with the Photoshop and scanning departments for over 50 publications. For the past 11 years I have photographed over 3000 locations and countless products as Carsten Arnold Photography. 

When I'm not shooting or editing images for my clients, I spend time on several heritage preservation photography projects, fine art photography, hiking, fly fishing, and exploring the backroads of British Columbia. 

“In my 10 years as a Vancouver Realtor I have had the pleasure of working with many professional photographers. Carsten without question is by far the most talented, dedicated and passionate photographer we have worked with in our time. Carsten’s high quality images of our listings have helped our business grow more than 50% year over year. Incredible attention to detail, excellent communication skills, prompt service and willingness to go above are what separates Carsten from others and makes him an industry leader.” Roland Lewis

“Carsten is a shining example of what every professional looks for when they hire a photographer. I have always been blown away with the level of service and quality of work that Carsten produces.”
