Sven Swalef

My name is Sven Swalef, I was born and raised in a city called Spijkenisse located in the South-West of the Netherlands. After my time at primary school, I started my education in electrical engineering. I graduated for this education in 2007 but didn't continue working on it. Now a days I'm working in the piping industry, mostly doing maintenance.

Since my early age, I've been fascinated by weather, mostly severe weather. The extreme power within Thunderstorms just thrills me. Back in 2009 after seeing lightning strike pictures on the web, I grabbed my Olympus FE-230 and tried it myself. After catching my first lightning strike in firework mode, I was sold to photography. Soon after it, I purchased a Canon 400D DSLR camera, and from then on I started to do Aviation, Landscape, Weather, and Astro photography.

Photography is a way for me, to share the things I like. It makes you think about the things around you, and see them in different perspectives. Also photography for me is a way to capture the best moments in life.
