The instructors

We are two very experienced photographers who on a daily basis are running a very successful photography studio in Aarhus, Denmark. We are one of the biggest and most productive wedding photography businesses in Denmark with around 30 weddings each year.

Our team consist of Hans Christian Strikert and Jan Winther. Hans Christian - also known as HC - is the owner and primary photographer at Strikert Photography. Jan Winther is the co-photographer and partner of the studio - Jan is always with HC when doing wedding photography or other on-locations assignments.

HC is the technical guy who sets a pride in knowning everything a DSLR camera can do. HC is a trained paramedic for more than 10 years and have run his own photography company since 2011. In both trades he is use to being an instructor and having a key eye on every participant making sure to give each of them hands-on time with him. HC is a Canon master and knows everything there is to using this brand.

Jan has been a primary school teacher for over 40 years before retiring in 2013 and thereafter taking up photography as his primary trade. Jan is our "go-to-guy" when it comes to knowledge about the areas and local history. He is also a Nikon master and goes all the way back to the time where he had his own developing room at his home. Jan has also a fondness for wildlife photography especially bird photography and knows everything there is know about birds - he is a member of the Danish Ornithological Society.

We both have an outgoing passion for landscape and wildlife photography which have taken us to the Faroe Islands and Iceland many times.
