Jan Peter

Jan is an ambitious cinematographer, and a passionate tomato grower based in Cologne. Filming commercials, feature films and documentaries around the globe gave him the possibility to increase his expertise in filming and at the same time hunting for the best tomatoes.

His work brings him freedom and the opportunity to combine both of his passions permanently: Seeking for the best tomato salad worldwide and enjoying filming and working with amazing and wonderful human beings.

Technical understanding, a sensible feeling for stories and quite naturally his empathy for people guides him through every project. When it comes to work he loves planing and creating a vision. It gives him the freedom to be creative and spontaneous on the shooting itself – sounds weird, but it works.
