About me

Arnaldo was born on the 14th of May 1984 in Brescia, Italy.

In 2009, during a workshop at the School of Visual Arts in New York, he seriously approached photography and fell in love with it. In 2010 he graduated in Cinema at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Italy, and decided it was time to dig deeper into his new passion that was taking over every minute of his free time. In August 2011 he started to study photography at the Brooks Institute of photography in Santa Barbara, California, where he graduated with honorable mention two years later.

During these years, Arnaldo has been assisting on set and doing post-production for celebrity and portrait photographers like Douglas Kirkland, Joe Pugliese and Jim Jordan.He has also been shooting portraits and some of the most beautiful houses of the Californian coast for interior designers, architects and magazines.

Arnaldo is currently based in Italy, where he enjoys the company of his friends and the italian food. He loves swimming and running, which he does as much as he can, and loves dark chocolate.

  1. Hi Arnaldo,

    “I’ve found out quickly that all I was doing was photographing, reading about it, daydreaming on famous photographers’ pictures that I love, and wishing to produce high quality pictures myself…”

    I can only say, you were and you are right with your dreams, because:

    “Some people say that dreaming gets you nowhere in life. But I say you can’t get anywhere in life without dreaming.”
    (Rose Zadra)

    It´s my life motto and I love it!
