Photographer of the Day: Arnaldo Quintini

ADC Member can't get enough of shooting cityscapes

August is Photography Month here on the ADC blog. Among other stories and articles, we will be featuring a different photographer every weekday of the month. Some are seasoned professionals, some are young up and comers, and some are just amateur shutterbugs taking snapshots on the side. One thing they have in common: they are all ADC Members, part of our globe-spanning creative community. We hope that you enjoy their work as much as they love creating it!

Toronto, ON, Canada

How old were you when you took an interest in photography?

I believe I started having interest in photography when my grandfather bought me one of the first digital cameras available. When I moved to Toronto, I wanted to preserve every moment and every aspect of the city with my new DSLR.

What do you love most about photography as an artform?

It captures a moment in time, a moment that it cannot be repeated and you were part of it and now you can go back to that same moment in time anytime you want.

What is your favorite thing to shoot?

Cities, I love doing street photography in every city I travel to.

“When I moved to Toronto, I wanted to preserve every moment and every aspect of the city with my new DSLR.”

What is it about shooting cities that moves you?

I love being able to showcase the different cultures, people, food, architecture of each and every city.

What is your favorite piece of equipment?

My Nikon 35mm prime lens. Probably the best purchase I’ve made so far. Also, I have a Polaroid camera that I take everywhere I go. Guilty.

Which person most inspires your photographic passion? Which professional photographers do you look up to?

Francesca Woodman‘s style was incredible and I don’t know if she’d be considered as a “professional photographer” but the soul in each and one of her photographs inspire me to try and capture that same essence.
