After graduating from the Art Institute with a BA degree in Commercial Photography, Arnold's talent was recognized by some of the most well-known sports and celebrity photographers. He spent many years shooting professionally for the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and other professional sports leagues. His photos graced the pages of the New York Times, USA Today, Sports Illustrated and ESPN Magazine. In addition to action photography, Arnold is also well-known for his iconic portraits of pro athletes. Some of his celebrity portraits include: Tiger Woods, Lebron James, Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Phelps and many more.

While the world of sports photography was action-packed, Jason never lost his attachment to the sea. He began shooting outdoor commercial photography as a side project, but this soon became his passion.
