Director and Photographer based in Berlin and quite often Copenhagen
Despite the Scandinavian name, Jan is only 18% Danish. Jan started as an Ad production assistant, worked pretty much any job on a filmset for a couple of years and assisted his way up the food chain. After some film schooling at the HFF Munich, Jan followed his passion for photography to NYC where he assisted numerous fashion and beauty photographers. Back in Berlin he founded his studio in Berlin, Kreuzberg in 2009 and went on to directed fashion and music videos as well as TVCs. Today, Jan lives in Berlin, enjoying the life of a commercial director/photographer with a Therapist-like interest in people.
Jan teaches Photography and Film for the Berlin School of Popular Arts in Berlin and others abroad. He is the most happy when he can do a boyish grin behind his monitor or with fancy wine in his glass or both at the same time.
