Dan is a brilliant photographer , truly a creative genius

I have known Dan for 5 years and he is the best photographer I have meet Not only brilliant but a very nice person , he has constantly gone out of his way to help me , a true gentle spirit His photographs speak deadly of the human condition and ask as many questions as they answer Sad that one pissed off old girlfriend can raise such a stink ,maybe get a job or a new toy to rub against But leave the man alone to live his life and earn a living and make more great images . Really great stuff !

Good quality

Kept part of my rental deposit. Refused to pay for appliances I had sold to him.

When we moved into this house, we left a deposit of $2000.00 with th rental agent. About a year later Arsenault calls and tells us he is taking over managing the property. While we rented his house we made minor repairs and painted (with Daniel Arsenaults permission) we asked him on several occasions to fix the leaking pipes in the bathroom. He refused. He came to our house once but he was incoherent and really unprofessional. We also told him that the roof needed replaced, but he refused to fix that until 2 years later when the bedroom ceiling caved in from rainwater. He would call us at all hours of the day and night and talk nonsense. My husband and I used to argue over who would have to talk to him! When we finally found another place to live we cleaned the house, repainted all the rooms and painted the front and back porch. Daniel Arsenault assured us we would get our deposit back. I also had a washer and dryer that I didn't want to move so I offered to sell it for $200.00. After we had moved out Daniel said he would send us our deposit and the money for the washer and dryer. He kept putting me off, emailing that he would "send a check on tuesday, then thursday" etc. After a month my husband talked to him and demanded our money. He sent us $700.00. This man kept $1500.00 of my money. His reason? "There was water damage in the bathroom" YES! From the broken, leaking pipe we had told him about and he refused to fix. So how is that my fault? I can't sue him in small claims court because he does not have a permanent address. I can only hope that others read these complaints and stay as far away from him as possible. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS CREATURE!

Should have put things in writing and taken him to court the moment there was a delay in fixing the leak.

Jeff and Lindsey bracken are nice people but were late many times paying the rent.I gave them great references to the new landlord.I never charged them any late fees which i could of.They had many problems paying the rent.Eventually they would pay the rent.There deposit was returned and the monies kept were for repairs and late fees.Enclosed are a few emails i received from Jeff Bracken from his office at Associated foods in Salt Lake City.I find that people like the Brackens wasting there time to try to slander people on a web site that has nothing todo with consumer reports.I dont mind in fact its ok with me to let people express there hurt feelings.I hope them the best.Here is what kind of letters i get from Jeff Brakcen from his work email at Associated Food Stores.

(Dan, I,m so sorry about this,but i cant put rent in your account until next Thursday.I know i have been terrible the last four months,but that will end this week.Next month i will deposit on the first and then the 29th. We have cut back on everything we can, we no longer have cell phones and have discontinued cable.Lindsay wont be able to file for unemployment until the end of August.I feel terrible about taking advantage of you and will make up for thelate payment fees on the 18th. Please call me on my work phone if you need to get a hold of me.Jeffery S. Bracken Inventory Manager Associated Food Stores).....

Scamming, incompetent, incoherent maniac - do not work with him, ever.

Daniel Arsenault might very well be insane. In any event, he is manipulative, incoherent, and literally impossible to work with, for, or around. I have known Daniel Arsenault (Daniel Arseno, Eddie Scratt) in his "professional" capacity as a photographer. It's fortunate for him that a professional license is not required for whatever freelance work he can get, because no half-functioning state employee would grant him a license to do anything but institutionalize himself. Not only is he thoroughly unprofessional and emotionally unbalanced, he is incompetent as a photographer. Further, he regularly defrauds models, property owners, and crew. He's not bad at telling some half-believable sob story about his ailing mother draining his savings, and then takes advantage of people's sympathy when he claims he will pay them for their work in the future. I have personally witnessed him defraud people on at least three occasions, and luckily have never agreed to work with him in a capacity where he was responsible for paying me. Each time he persuades the person to work "with" him on a project that is going to be "big," promises to share the profits from the project with the person or pay them later, behaves like an egotistical maniac for the duration of the project, has a tantrum on the set, berates models and crew for bizarre reasons, makes vague promises about payment or photo trades, and soon thereafter leaves town trailing excuses and inexplicable anger. His behavior extends beyond that of an egotistical, tantrum-throwing diva photographer because it is fueled by apparent delusions. He often has immense trouble communicating coherently and is incapable of focusing his attention on a conversation or task. He acts similar to a person with schizophrenia, and that is not an exaggeration. Sometimes he will erupt into anger for no reason or derail activities with an intense determination to do something that is completely nonsensical and impracticable at the time. He spends a lot of time asking for input on his unrelated work while on set. Don't get mixed up with Daniel Arsenault. He is annoying, sociopathic, unbalanced, vindictive about imagined slights, and will spend 90% of your time babbling about nonsense, 10% of your time attempting to produce photographs.

Some of it sounds familiar. I worked with him a long time ago and interesting to see some of the patterns still exists. He is or was talented.

#324171

I can sum it all up in three words: Wacky lying cheat.

#318235

What is this poster talking about?

I have worked professionally with Dan Arsenault for many years. I have found him to be extraordinarily talented and capable, always honest and hard-working. He is creative, good at problem-solving, and gets results for the client (me).

It bothers me to see a professional's business reputation interfered with by an unscrupulous person. (The syntax and vocabulary suggest that the same person is posting and commenting on most if not all of these complaints.) I don't believe a word of them.

If ordinary decent people don't speak up when others are slammed dishonestly, what kind of world will this become? Don't let the "scamming, incompetent, incoherent maniacs" win!

I know from first hand experience with him how destructive narcissism can be. His inability to understand the importance of other's emotional states, combined with a deep seeded and violent anger and temper problem, has destroyed all of his relationships.

His own father is to the point where he can't even talk to him (this has been the case off and on for years). He never supported his parents or children financially, emotionally, physically, or mentally. They have financially supported him with money and shelter. He never saw his one son for years.

All of his marriages ended dramatically. Other men supported the women and raised the children. The police were called on him. His own parents who never ever received a dime from him had to kick him out of the house when he had nowhere else to go cuz he was so irate and was causing so much bedlam and chaos that her mother just couldn't take it anymore.

His sibling doesn't like to speak to him either. Even though I often have difficulty understanding social cues and emotional states, I try to be as compassionate, understanding and empathetic as possible. If you tell me your emotional state I'll hold it in high regard. It is ironic I ever got involved with this man.

I had no idea what I was getting into. After our breakup I've tried to help him, but he blows up when you give the tiniest of constructive criticisms or suggestions. Due to his narcissism and anger he may be beyond help, and I officially gave up on him a couple of days ago. Narcissism isn't pretty, and it isn't the way to live if you want to have real meaningful connections with people.

The only people who admire narcissists are those who find themselves to be considerably weak socially, which ironically makes them simultaneously someone whom the narcissist can get close to (both the narcissist and socially weak person appreciate that they are able to have a close relationship with someone) and take advantage of.I know from first hand experience with him how destructive narcissism can be.

His own father and past industry reps got to the point where they can't even talk to him (this has been the case off and on for years). He never paid the models nor are the sob stories true about supporting his parents or children financially, emotionally, physically, or mentally. They encouraged him to work and make a living.

He only returns out of desperation.

Yes this guy is for real. Its these type of semi-pro who abuse their own clients, and drain random freelance models..I doubt you can change them-they can only change themselves. They justify their hatred of work with sucking stronger diligent professionals brians they exhaust. The guy has beliefs and 'holy' scriptures when all he is doing is promoting it's ok to be a parasite. Another compelling reason to look further. The distortion of logic presented was astonishing! It seems like a joke but its not. Still shaking my head!!"Ž Where's my jellybean and Dr.Pepper?

My friends advices me not to take him anymore as he is not reliable. he might be going round asking n realise its unfair to him then come and negotiate with us.

*** he keep calling and negotiate with us? Not long later he emailed me saying he wanted to claim his transport fare from me too. My friends keep telling me it is not professional enough for the time but we still decided to use him as i myself is also a freelance. He free.Thats his style and not the max.

My god. He argued with me and i got so fed up that he didnt clarify and is so unreliable and even call us to confront. i finally decided not to take him up. Should have done so earlier.

said he just started up so he dunno how to do.

Ok so he dunno anything. Sighhhh.......

It show how naive some people are about business.A smart business owner updates and changes the appearance of a website to show a change of venue. The new name is hardly changing from Dog to angel,you can see the artist name is still visible.It makes me wonder how perfect of professional the people making these comments truly are themselves.

:? :?

#211958

I don't know who is going to all this trouble to smear this photographer, but apparently they got their feelings hurt and are trying to get back by attempting to ruin someone's business and life.

Dan is an excellent photographer and creative artist. He has a heart of gold and goes out of his way to help other people. He is not violent and does not ever go out of his way to try and screw other people.

You need not be afraid to hire Dan to do photography or design. He has been in business for many years and does excellent work, as anyone who knows him and has actually worked with him can tell you.

Daniel Arsenault of Daniel Arsenault Photography is still a Mess

We had another call from Daniel Arseanult of Daniel Arsenault Photography. He constantly exhausted, looks aged, and out of luck. Why? Living a life of lies paves the way to ***. No one will work with him; neither should you. He used to get away with ***, but today the world is small and pure selfishness stinks.. His photo skills are obsolete a bakers dozen among hobbyist. He lets on and talks a great story about all these upcoming big breaks but these made up stories and exaggerations are all he has to offer. We asked around and found out that has never been a finished product on all the projects he told us about. He will not keep commitments. The agency in Los Angeles does not hire him out, its that simple. The never ending list of those who have done him wrong spares no one including his ailing Alzheimer mother,father,and generous always bailing him out brother who is a great son, father, grandfather to all. Daniel Arsenault spends his days using the Internet to prey on people here and there and soon he is trying to solicit a handout,partnership, job, room, food. He is impossible to work with as he will not follow through on his commitments. He hit up everyone he ever went to school with or known asking for work but his bad reputation precedes him. How many more people will not get their pictures, or lose out on a loan when they gave the guy money. He causes trouble everywhere he goes with a temper. I can only imagine the energy this narcissist dude exudes on a daily basis trying to create a " its not my fault, please feel sorry for me" world of his own vision and keep his tracks covered. He is blind to his own actions. Sorry he got your cash. You can be glad you got away with only that. Some did not and were taken to the cleaners emotionally and physically besides monetarily. More people need to come forward, speak up and stop the crookedness, so he moves out of the country and all of us can rest knowing he will not be knocking on our door again.. for a while. He is hard to get rid of. Has anyone ever gotten him to quit bugging? We ignore his calls and say we are busy if he catches us. He said he was back staying in the old neighborhood freeloading. He knows how to spot and use a sucker. Don't let it be you. Women beware he is only out for himself and you are not the only one. He is currently playing at least three women from what he told my husband bragging about his going on state by state. He has violent temper tantrums; one occurred in front of our child after we asked for a background check. He never apologized for scaring us or the baby when he called about something else.

He is a shoplifting psychopath, call police and you should run for the hills!

The words described above about Daniel Arsenault in a negative manner are an extreme abuse of the internet communication and a direct attack on him as a person. I am shocked and disgusted that someone would write such angry words.

If you didn't like him as a photographer, move on. Sounds like a jilted lover, not someone professional. It also sounds like a person (that if a professional) has zero experience in managing "creative" talent and must have been extremely disorganized and not know the strategy of what was supposed to be shot at the session they claim to be at.

A professional art director or designer is the leader, the photographer facilitates. This is a lame site and I look forward to it going away with many lawsuits soon.

Zero degrees of empathy means you have no awareness of how you come across to others, how to interact with others, or how to anticipate their feelings or reactions. It leaves you feeling mystified by why relationships don't work out, and it creates a deep-seated self-centredness.

Other people's thoughts and feelings are just off your radar.

It leaves you doomed to do your own thing, in your own little bubble, not just oblivious of other people's feelings and thoughts but oblivious to the idea that there might even be other points of view. The consequence is that you believe 100% in the rightness of your own ideas and beliefs, and judge anyone who does not hold your beliefs as wrong, or ***.

Wow!! Hopefully everyone can read through the angry and insane lies of a jilted ex-lover (sarah).

I have known Dan for eight years and consider him one of my closest friends. I am connected to Dan and his entire family and can tell you that he is not at all what (sarah) represents in her hateful email. I have hired Dan to photograph and help brand our business in Park City and found his work to be on a superior and professional level.

It is unfortunate that anyone can go on the internet and write disparaging comments and damage an individuals livelyhood. I respect Dan's work and will always consider Dan a close and personal friend.

Dano and I talked about EVERY subject there is, but when I mentioned anything about meeting girls his past experiences with women shows. Maybe when I said stuff like did you fall in love I did not say it in a negative way as it seems.Now I understand differently, he has been so burned.I was VERY relaxed, so no worries on my end so chill. Be happy with whatever or who ever you are doing or you are with.

Daniel Arsenault Photo & House Rental Cheat

Getting the word out from other boards about Daniel Arsenault: Daniel Arsenault Photography and House Renter is not to be trusted. They're Several Complaints here about Daniel Arsenault Photography and his slummy house renting practices. Daniel Arsenault Photographer Dead Beat My office had a terrible experience with Daniel Arsenault Photography. After Daniel Arseanult was hired, he neurotically called nonstop daily annoying everybody. One day he called sixteen times! On the day of the shoot, Daniel Arsenault arrived looking and smelling hung-over, dressed like a homeless person. What an embarrassment. From the beginning we noticed Daniel Arsenault was tense and nervous. During the shoot, the assistant made some technical suggestions to Daniel Arsenault. Daniel Arsenault then preceded to blow up and suddenly turned mean, screaming profanities, and threw something at the technical assistant scaring the rest of the crew. We stopped the shoot, and let Daniel Arseanult go. We later continued the shoot with a younger and more professional photographer, who had all the latest equipment. His work was perfect and he was a joy to work with. He was a third of the cost of what we would had paid incompetent, overpriced Daniel Arsenault Photography. Since then, we have heard he's built such a tremendously negative reputation for himself and we obviously know why posted 10/14/10 by Pat Re: Daniel Arsenault Photographer Dead Beat WARNING DANIEL ARSENAULT PHOTO ILLUSTRATION The truth is, no one can work with the highly talented genius, of Daniel Arsenault of of Daniel Arsenault Photo illustration. For those who know Daniel Aresenault you know he lives in what could be called an "alternate" universe, where situations and stories blur the edges of reality. Delays, Incompletes, and Rudeness are part of the scene. Daniel Arsenault of Daniel Arsenault Photo Illustration does CRAZY things. Wether he is a malicious person or not_ _ _ _ ?? It's hard to tell, but if anyone can put up with him is a definite NO ! Another I had a similar experience with Daniel Arsenault in Salt Lake City. I was supposed to rent a house from him.

I rented a house from this man. When we moved out we cleaned, painted the entire house as well as the front and back porch.

Daniel Arsenault said that he would have our deposit mailed to us within the week. Our deposit was $2000.00. We waited a week then he emailed and said he would send it in two days. then he promised to send it in three days.

Finally after a month of this, I called him out on it. He sent me a check for $700.00. When I asked him where the rest was he said I should just shut up and consider myself lucky he never reported me to the credit agency for paying rent late! I have, in my possesion, every receipt from every rent payment I ever made and I was never late!

They are all dated before the first of the month or right on the first. Sadly, there is little I can do since this man has no real address I can't sue him in small claims court. He also kept a washer and dryer that belonged to me, saying he would buy them from me, but I never got paid. Do not do business with this creature!

I wish I had googled his name before I rented his house. What a piece of work!

I can only hope that something horrible happens to him. Karma and all.

#353542

Unfortunately I fell for the lies and was misled just like the rest. This person is dangerous.

#336871

@test--Yes, apparently you can write whatever nonsense you want to, and there's no way to refute a faceless, nameless accuser.

Who are these people? They rip someone's name to shreds, but don't stand up and identify themselves. Why would anyone believe this garbage?

I would guess the whole thing is the work of one person who posts under a bunch of different names. Apparently she (obviously) has nothing better to do than go after some old boyfriend. What on earth does having "zero degrees of empathy" have to do with photography, house rentals, or any other business?

Suggesting someone assaulted you (if they did not) is a legally actionable offense. For the rest, stop embarrassing yourself.

Sometimes he will erupt into anger for no reason or derail activities with an intense determination to do something that is completely nonsensical and impracticable at the time. He spends a lot of time asking for input on his unrelated work while on set.

Don't get mixed up with Daniel Arsenault. He is annoying, sociopathic, unbalanced, vindictive about imagined slights, and will spend 90% of your time babbling about nonsense, 10% of your time attempting to produce photographs.

Zero degrees of empathy means you have no awareness of how you come across to others, how to interact with others, or how to anticipate their feelings or reactions. It leaves you feeling mystified by why relationships don't work out, and it creates a deep-seated self-centredness.

Other people's thoughts and feelings are just off your radar.

It leaves you doomed to do your own thing, in your own little bubble, not just oblivious of other people's feelings and thoughts but oblivious to the idea that there might even be other points of view. The consequence is that you believe 100% in the rightness of your own ideas and beliefs, and judge anyone who does not hold your beliefs as wrong, or ***.

Daniel Arsenault Photgrapher Rip-Off & Mess

Heres More on the photographer Daniel Arsenault of Daniel Arsenault Photo Illustration with link. http://www.partypop.com/Forums/Photography_and_Videography/m475143.htm Re: Daniel Arsenault Photographer Dead Beat My office had a terrible experience with Daniel Arsenault Photography. After Daniel Arseanult was hired, he neurotically called nonstop daily annoying everybody. One day he called sixteen times!On the day of the shoot, Daniel Arsenault arrived looking and smelling hung-over, dressed like a homeless person. What an embarrassment. From the beginning we noticed Daniel Arsenault was tense and nervous. During the shoot, the assistant made some technical suggestions to Daniel Arsenault. Daniel Arsenault then preceded to blow up and suddenly turned mean, screaming profanities, and threw something at the technical assistant scaring the rest of the crew.We stopped the shoot, and let Daniel Arseanult go. We later continued the shoot with a younger and more professional photographer, who had all the latest equipment. His work was perfect and he was a joy to work with. He was a third of the cost of what we would had paid incompetent, overpriced Daniel Arsenault Photography. Since then, we have heard he's built such a tremendously negative reputation for himself and we obviously know why posted 10/14/10 by Pat Re: Daniel Arsenault Photographer Dead Beat WARNING DANIEL ARSENAULT PHOTO ILLUSTRATION The truth is, no one can work with the highly talented genius, of Daniel Arsenault of of Daniel Arsenault Photo illustration. For those who know Daniel Aresenault you know he lives in what could be called an "alternate" universe, where situations and stories blur the edges of reality. Delays, Incompletes, and Rudeness are part of the scene. Daniel Arsenault of Daniel Arsenault Photo Illustration does CRAZY things. Wether he is a malicious person or not_ _ _ _ ?? It's hard to tell, but if anyone can put up with him is a definite NO ! 29 days ago by mamaone 0 Votes I had a similar experience with Daniel Arsenault in Salt Lake City. I was supposed to rent a house from him. I gave him a $750 cash deposit (I know, ***) and he rented the place to someone else and kept my money. He was really friendly right after we first met, so I trusted him. He is a talented artist, but the man is just a mess.

I have known and worked artistically with Dan over the past 10 years. He is incredibly talented and creative.

He has the mind of a genius and sometimes people who think differently and artistically about things see life in a different light. I think he is wonderful.

Working with him has been more of an adventure than just a day shooting pictures. I am grateful for every experience I have had with him.

I've work in the small office of a nonprofit public service organization in Sale Lake City for about three years, and two years ago a photographer named Daniel Arsenault joined our staff part time. Over time, he's become increasingly rude and demanding. This is something that both visitors to the office and other co-workers noted about Daniel Arsenault. He was argumentative about everything, big or small; he resists any kind of help or suggestions concerning his work; he would not inform me about important meetings; he stormed out of clients offices. He yelled at people over the phone and used the f-word often.

My boss noticed and was bothered by it. I feel like I was always tiptoeing around my coworker. I was so miserable being around Daniel Arsenault that I thought about quitting like the two others who did. I didn’t want to appear whiny by complaining to the boss, and I don’t think it would of been productive to confront my co-worker either. I was afraid he was going to blow up and physically attack me. Finally the boss had a epic fight that ended in the parking lot with the police on their way. Daniel Arsenault was fired and our office is tolerable and pleasant once again.
