What I do
I believe photography, and artistic endeavour as a whole is about portraying a scene in ways that people recognise, but at the same time, have never witnessed before. Anyone develop an image of a scene, but I want to show the world what I can create in ways that are unique and yet completely relatable to other people who have witnessed the same scene.
Crafting most of my photography requires careful planning and patience, which from a glance of the result can seem simple, however I cannot control the weather, the light, and the majority of subjects I take photos of are immovable. I carefully weigh all of these factors into creating my art and the result are my numerous award-winning creations.
Along with my global trekking, I have been running my Adelaide wedding photography business SvenStudios since 2010. Wedding photography has been fantastic for me as I really enjoy the experience of covering people’s weddings. stevenduncanart.com was developed to showcase my more artistic works
Education and Awards
As an active member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) in South Australia, I actively enter my work for consideration in various industry awards, garnering ‘award winning’ status each year since I joined the organisation. I have been rather successful during my past three years of active professional photography, garnering the prestigious title of ‘award winning’ through not only domestic industry awards, but also international.
I have also recently been conferred the honour of being an Associate of the AIPP which shows my work is of a consistently very high standard.
My education consists of a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Multimedia with the University of South Australia, and a Certificate IV in Photoimaging with the TAFE of SA. I also hold the qualifications of a Masters degree in teaching and a Diploma in Computer and Information Technology.
