My name is Rune Svendsen, I was born and raised on the west coast of Norway. Growing up I always had a curiosity about the world and what was beyond my borders, so photography became a way to document my journeys. It wasn’t until I moved to Sydney in 2013 that my hobby began to become a passion. I realised I love Sydney: Its architecture and landscapes have become a constant source of inspiration and the diverse photo opportunities never disappoint.
I enjoy seeing what other photographers shoot, then seeking out the same vantage points to make my own unique interpretation. I love how social media makes that possible and how you can connect with so many other like-minded people. I’ve had an exceptionally busy three years since relocating Down Under with all that it entails. In addition, I met my wife in Sydney and we now plan our adventures together, with me shooting them. Having experienced and photographed so many different sides of this glorious city, it now feels like Sydney is part of me and I am part of Sydney. I feel very lucky to have made the move here.
