Webinar Description

Part lifestyle magazine, part coffee-table cookbook, JAN the Journal is a biannual publication that chronicles Michelin-star chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen and his team’s creative journey. Every issue comprises around 300 pages filled with over 50 tried-and-tested recipes and a variety of stories about everything ranging from food and ingredients to an appreciation of the finer things. Join the JAN team as they chat about filming video to accompany the 8th volume of the Journal on a road trip from Cape Town to the Kalahari. They share insights on how to make everyday people feel comfortable in front of the camera, capturing unplanned moments, and arriving prepared to shoot in a location you’ve never visited before.

Who Can Attend

Food enthusiasts, aspiring photographers, culinary artists, and anyone passionate about the art of food photography are invited to attend this insightful workshop.


Discover the art of creating JAN the Journal with the team. Learn how to film accompanying videos, make people comfortable on camera, and be prepared for shoots in new locations.

Jan Hendrik Van der Westhuizen

Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen is the first South African chef to have obtained a Michelin star. He is also a photographer, stylist, publisher, and entrepreneur – so you can catch him behind a camera almost as often as in his restaurant kitchens on the French Riviera or in the Kalahari.
