Jun Takano was born in São Paulo, Brazil. Since he was a child he was enticed by photographic cameras and photographic books. This interest grew even more as a teenager when he got his first SLR Film Camera.

Later in life, he decided to do a Master’s Degree in Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco – CA – USA. After spending some time between USA and Brazil he is now based in Australia where he continues to work as a fine art photographer, following his passion of landscapes and moments that are fading away with the progression of the modern world.
