As an internationally recognised commercial and fine-art photographer, Kevin Arnold has spent a couple decades hanging off cliffs, trekking through rainforests, skiing through blizzards, and travelling the back roads of the world. Before becoming a professional photographer, Kevin worked for years as an editor and travel writer for magazines like Outside and Men’s Journal, where he learned how to find and tell a good story. He lives in a more visual world now, but his journalistic instincts remain intact, and continue to inform his style as a photographer. Kevin’s advertising work is marked by an authentic, credible aesthetic, and is in demand by a variety of companies around the world. But his true passion lies in documenting the world’s wild places and the real life struggles and joys of those who live and work there – sometimes by choice, but just as often not.
Kevin has chronicled the work of anti-poaching rangers in Kenya’s Masai Mara for National Geographic, documented clean water projects for the World Health Organisation, detailed the work of avalanche patrollers in British Columbia, and recently photographed indigenous people in the Amazon for The Nature Conservancy.
He lives with his wife, three kids, and a growing menagerie of animals on their farm under the face of Mount Currie in British Columbia. It is perhaps the biggest adventure he has undertaken to date.
