Hi I’m Sven and I like music. A lot. But I’m not a good singer nor can I play an instrument on a professional level. So I realised about 20 years ago that I need to professionalize my second biggest love in life (besides my wife and kids). which is: photography.

I’d love to tell you a story about an artistic education, but I can’t because there is none. I just started to take pictures when I was 15 years old and got better over time. I Improved myself by pushing limits and the everlasting quest for better images. Learning to see the beauty of light and study the way it reacts on different subjects and textures is my main point of interest.

The camera is only a simple tool. Seeing and shaping the light is what makes a good photo (and some other stuff offcourse, but it sounds cool, right).

I found my specialty in culinary photography. I have a true fascination for the beautiful textures and shapes nature has to offer. Besides taking photos of dishes I like to tell the stories behind the products and the people who grow and process them. Being able to show their love for the products they work with is an amazing thing to do.

I hope you enjoy my work.
