"My photography focuses mainly on the Great Lakes regions of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the UP of Michigan, and will expand as I photograph other areas of the country. I currently live in northern Wisconsin and enjoy the incredible beauty, both natural and man-made, that is found throughout the Northwoods. I've spent the majority of my life near Lake Superior and my appreciation for what is found here continues to grow. From the Aurora Borealis to the great ore carriers that navigate her waters, Gichigami offers endless photographic opportunities. I'm a self-taught photographer and continue to improve my work primarily through reading and making more photographs."

Jim Arnold- Underwater Photography

J. H. Arnold artist statement

I grew up on the shores of Blue Lake in northern Wisconsin and I thought I was an 8-year-old Jacques Cousteau with my $9.99 dime store mask, snorkel and fins. Fifty years later I’m still that eight-year-old now with more expensive equipment and an underwater camera. The world around me is where I find my inspiration and I try to show the beauty in things that go unnoticed in our fast-paced lives.

I am a nature photographer/artist /explorer my work appearing in the Wisconsin Rustic Roads Guide, Lake Superior Magazine and I was 2019 UW Madison Limnology Centers Trout Lake Station Artist in Residence and most recently I was a part of the show The earth we share at the Wausau Center for Visual Arts. Check out my blog and see more.

With a personal intention to create and exhibit visual art that conveys the unseen qualities of the world around us, he endeavors to “To photograph the invisible.”
