About Jan

Videojournalist since 2006 with former experience as screenwriter and cameraman. I've produced more than 700 reports for tv and online clients like dapd, Deutsche Welle TV, ZEIT online, Stern or DWN. I like to cover politics, economics and culture, plus some special interests: Aviation and maritime stories, especially when connected with underwater filming. I'm mostly reporting from Germany, but I like to travel as well. I've shot reports in Spain, Italy, England, Ireland, Finland, Russia, just to mention some destinations. I'm fully equipped, including HD-camera plus DSLR, sound gear, light, mobile and desktop editing. I also own diving gear and underwater camera equipment.
