Nature photographer and producer.

Come to a photography course and learn how to set up with nature photographer Jan Tandrup Petersen. Jan is a professional nature photographer and has had this job full time for over 30 years. He has produced more than 200 nature films from most of the world and most have been shown in DR. The latest major project has been as one of the main photographers for DR´'s nature series "Wild wonderful Denmark". Jan has traveled with film work in mind around the extremes of the world, Svalbard, Antarctica, Sumatra and the Amazon.

Jan has also produced several nature films in the Wadden Sea National Park where he has spent many hours in hiding waiting for the right recording, and he takes you out to the reed forests where you will experience how the starlings gather in flocks of hundreds of thousands and dance in the sky before they go to rest in the reeds. Experiencing, understanding and photographing the phenomenon of black sun together with Jan and camera is a memorable experience you aging will forget!

In Tøndermarsken's towns and landscape you can experience a rich building culture, surrounded by magnificent nature, which houses some of Europe's most important bird sites, including the large flocks of starlings that gather in the marsh for a short time in spring and autumn.
