Leif Alveen was born and raised in Aalborg, Denmark. He has always been interested in photography, and after having been away from it for a number of years, he got back into it in 2006.
Leif entered his first international exhibition in late 2009, and then was bitten by the bug in a big way ever since.
He received his PPSA in 2012, his EPSA in 2015, and his MPSA in 2017. He earned his MPSA2 in 2019.
