Welcome to my page!
My name is Jana and I have been working in the creative industries for the past 10+ years. My projects span from filmmaking, photography to film editing and producing. Recently, I have relocated from my hometown Cologne in Germany to beautiful Brisbane in Australia.
As a curious soul, I always endeavour to learn more about my surroundings and the people that cross my paths. My passion for storytelling goes hand in hand with a devotion to being a good listener. I started taking photographs at a young age, because I was fascinated with capturing these decisive moments when the light, objects and people arrange themselves into a perfect image and beauty reveals itself in even the most mundane things. My aim is to always bring a balanced mix of storytelling and visual aesthetics to all my projects.
My first freelancing jobs, I picked up whilst studying photography at Folkwang University in Essen (Germany). Then moving on to London for my M.A. in Fine Art Photography at the Royal College of Art, I began working as a videographer and filmmaker. Having trained as an artist, I also present my fine art photography and video projects as part of art exhibitions all around the world. Find out more about it here.
