MEET THE VIDEOGRAPHER
Jean-Pierre Van der Vyver
Videographer, Video-Editor, Color-Correction, Script Writer
My name is Jean-Pierre van der Vyver. Not a man of big words, but with an eye for the remarkable. Born in Southafrica, yet uprooted, my entire youth was spent in different parts of the Planet. Before even reaching adulthood I had already lived in over 20 different countries of the world. As a grown man, I finally found the closest thing to what I think „home“ might feel like - in Austria. From Malaysia to Mozambique, Romania to Scottland, my eyes have seen both the greatest beauty and the deepest misery. Mostly all the special moments in between.
At 17, having finally arrived „home“ my creativity awakened and I began processing all my visual and emotional experiences in the form of poems and graphics. When in 2009 my brother gave me my first camera as a gift, it ignited my passion for capturing great moments in pictures. 2017 I started studying Photography at the Lik Akademy in Graz. During this time I started gaining experience with model shootings and fashion photography.
Soon I realized, that there is a lot more potential for telling Stories in filming, rather than taking photos. In turn, my interest in photography turned into a flaming passion for filmmaking and video shooting. After improving my abilities in this field, my skills finally reached a level that I deemed worthy of becoming the foundation for my beloved project „ Everglade Pictures “. That's when my biggest dream became a reality and I started on my path as a professional videographer. I film on land, in the sky, and underwater. I film anywhere and anything. Because, if you look closely enough, you can capture that special moment. My job is to find beauty in all, magnify it, and show it to the world.
Feel free to contact me if you wish to have a Professional Videographer for special projects.
