Traveling the small Caribbean island of Barbados in early January of 2011, Sven was able to experience and capture factions of the islands rare friendliness and hospitality you don't have to search for.
Based in Los Angeles, California, Svenâ€™s passion for photography took a great leap forward after his move from Germany in 2004. Like so many others he wasnâ€™t able to resist the American Westâ€™s temptations with all itâ€™s glorious natural and urban landscapes, eccentric inhabitants and this sun light so appealing to a whole movie and also photography industry. Initially shaping his skills with street, travel and landscape photography he is now putting his focus on merging people photography with his professional background in CGI to excel professional standards in commercial as well as artistic standards in fine art photography. He also fills his spare time with shooting portraits of befriended musicians on stage or random people of interest in the streets around the globe.
