John Stenersen was born in Oslo in 1957, and has been a passionate birdwatcher since childhood. Being a professional photographer, he left newspaper-work in Oslo for a quiet life in the Lofoten Islands. Since 1995 he has lived in the little fishing village of Henningsvær, and mainly worked with nature photography and nature related guiding (birds and cetaceans).

He is a licensed ringer, and has also worked as a field assistant with seabird monitoring at the Røst Islands. Since 2002 he has been a member of the local rarities committee of Nordland. In 1998 he gave out a photo-book about the birds of Lofoten (only in Norwegian), and he is working on a book about the Norwegian Killer Whales (expected published in October 2004).

John is guiding in the Lofoten and Vesterålen Islands, and in mainland localities from Saltfjellet to Tysfjord.
