Jakob Suess


born 1979 in munich, jakob was gaining his first insights into the media business at a student radio station. he went on into a more visual field, working as an video editor. as you easily can imagine, somehow jakob ended up behind a camera. and got hooked. seriously. his studies of audiovisual media in stuttgart were refined at the hamburg media school's master class in cinematography.
michael ballhaus, wedigo von schultzendorff, hagen bogdanski, michael seresin and many more shared their experience, philosophy and knowledge.
since his graduation in 2010, jakob is working as a dop on commercials, music videos, image and fashion films. still based in hamburg, still hooked!
