Born in Germany, Jana has traveled the globe taking pictures. Her photos have been published internationally in a variety of newspapers and magazines including The New York Times, Rolling Stone and People Magazine. Jana's pursuit of photography began with portraits and nudes, and then progressed to a distinguished career photographing some of the most famous rock, blues and pop musicians of our time as a way to combine her passion for music, travel and photography into a single art form.
Having now settled in Manitou Springs, Jana has shifted the subject matter of her work to individual and family portraits, capturing the essence and spirit of her subjects and elevating her individual, family, wedding and special occasion portraits to the level of art.
For the last 10 years Jana has offered classes and camps to youngsters of all ages and has had yearly exhibits at the Manitou Art Center. It's her way of giving back to the community--she loves to spark the shutter-bug.
