About Us

Melanie and Carsten Arnold PhotoCarmel Studios is a culmination of the creative and technical skills of husband and wife team Carsten and Melanie Arnold.

Carsten has an extensive background in photography and image reproduction through many years in the graphics, printing, and publishing industries. His landscape and nature photographs are turned into works of art on prints, stretched canvas, acrylic, metal, wood, and wall mural home decor available on this site and in local art galleries.

Photography isn't always about the literal expression of reality! By applying artistic digital brushes and techniques to his photographs, Carsten turns an ordinary scene into a stunning work of art. His Architectural, Interiors, Industrial, Aerial, and Commercial Photography website is located here

Melanie creates beautiful and often whimsical sculptures from polymers that can be displayed indoors as well as outdoors. Melanie is always striving to achieve unique products to display in your home. Look for Melanie's sculptures coming to this site.

Carmel Studios also provides creative reprographic services offering image scanning, photo restoration, original artwork digitizing and reproduction, custom photo printing, and canvas framing, all produced in their Chilliwack, BC studio.
