Svein started wildlife photography 25 years ago and has spent more time with wildlife in the north than most people could ever dream of.
Arctic adventures and encounters with polar bears, walruses, arctic foxes and other animals in Svalbard have given him unique experiences, which he is only too happy to share with you. Having worked for many years photographing brown bears, wolves, wolverines and other Scandinavian creatures, Svein is one of the best-known wildlife photographers in Norway.
He has published three books and countless articles about wildlife and nature throughout the years.
