Arnold Despi is an Engineer by profession, Architect by heart and a great passion for capturing images in his freeze frame. He has always been fascinated with cameras and he owned a few since he was in his early 20’s but never really put serious attention to photography, especially Street Photography, only until towards the end of 2013. Arnold is a self-taught and learned photographer and just dived into street photography armed with his vision, passion and guts to learn along the way.
Arnold enjoys doing Street Photography, to him it is an expression and also a form of therapy to cope with all the challenges in life. Photography is an outlet where he can express his emotions. Arnold sees Street Photography as a very dynamic genre creating a challenge to the photographer to be observant, responsive, predictive and most often discreet in order to capture a candid moment. All of these combined plus a keen eye and the mastery of your tool to be able to capture the moment in your frame.
“I simply do not take photographs, I create images that will communicate with my audience” - Arnold Despi
