Hi, I’m Jan Sanewski a photographer, videographer and media informatics student based in Erlangen, Germany.
I have long been interested in arts and design and after a short detour through military service I continued that path and joined the media informatics undergrad program of Harz University. There I developed a wide range of skills including programming, web developement and project management but we also got instructed in more visual topics such as 3D animation, 2D animation and graphic design.
My true passion however lies in photography and filmmaking. In university I took classes and projects with great emphasis on these two subjects whenever possible and on top of that I also worked on multiple side projects throughout the past few years in order to gain additional experience.
The peak of my specialization in that direction marked my semester in LA where I attended California State University Northridge for the Fall semester of 2019 taking photography and film classes exclusively. Again I took every opportunity in but also outside of school to improve even further. Be it regular photo shoots on location or in a studio, photographer meetups, an official sony alpha event or to shoot at a fashion show, I tried to challenge myself in many different ways.
Now that I’m back in Germany I’m looking forward to continue that path and graduate from university.
