Andreas Steffan Cinematographer, 1st assistent cameraman, clapper loader
Andreas Steffan
Born in 1984, I realized at the age of nine that I want to become a cinematographer. At the age of sixteen I started to work at a regional TV broadcaster in my home town as cable guy and shortly became camera assistant and studio manager as well. After finishing school in 2003 I worked one and a half years as assistant of a photographer specialized in commercial photography.
In 2005 I started to study cinematography at the Filmuniversität Babelsberg - back then known as HFF “Konrad Wolf” - and graduated in 2011.

During my studies I shot numerous short movies as DoP and collaborated at countless student and professional film sets as 1st and 2nd assistant cameraman.
I am passionate about documentaries as well as movies which are inspired by real persons or based on actual events - to dunk into a world which is different to my own daily life is what I love about being a cinematographer. If I can choose I prefer projects of this category.

I’m based in Berlin. But, I collaborate with film, TV and commercial productions as freelancing cinematographer or 1st assistant cameraman/focus puller throughout Germany as well as worldwide.
I always enjoy traveling. Making movies in foreign countries are both challenging and very special - they’ve become the most remarkable experiences to me.

I am looking forward to manage all upcomming challenges which will arise within this industry.
