Your Bio

About the Photographer. Jim Arnold is a part-time professional photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area. Terms that best describe his approach to photography are documentary or photojournalistic. His specialty is event photography. He is a member of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that “Jim Arnold is an academic dean at a junior college in the North Bay. Although his day job is administrative, he claims his true passions are photography and writing. ‘There is no higher calling than artist,’ he says. Arnold has been photo-documenting the world around him since the mid-1970s, and for a few years he made his living doing event photography. He states he used manual-focus 35mm equipment longer than anybody he knows, but finally embraced the digital world in 2004. ‘When anybody asks me what kind of photography I do, I just tell them that I’m a wandering documentary photographer ... and then point them [here] to my SmugMug site.’”

Jim is known as “TechnoMonk” on Flickr, and you may see a different arrangement of a few of his photos by clicking here. Jim also writes a blog entitled TechnoMonk’s Musings, and you are heartily encouraged to check out his ramblings there.
