Jacob Crawfurd on assignment

Jacob Crawfurd

Professional photographer and videographer


CRAWFURD MEDIA is a photography and film production company established and managed by Danish photographer Jacob Crawfurd since January 2004. Crawfurd Media is based in Copenhagen and offers photography, video production and communication work - in Denmark and abroad.

I work with personal commitment for professional and creative solutions. Full attention is paid to solve small and large assignments in the best possible way. I work with my clients to find the best way to tell the story, create a larger project or get the best angle for a photo. You can be certain to get the product, price, terms and delivery time agreed upon.

Full production and freelance work

My assignments are mostly for single projects, but I also have many returning clients and assignments as freelance photo/videographer working together with journalists visiting Denmark. These jobs often also involves tasks as a research assistant or 'fixer'.


In my daily work I make good use of skills acquired from years of experience with communication work in combination with technical knowledge and with project management. Before creating my own company I was employed for more than 10 years in the Danish company VISION, producing multimedia content, websites, video and much more. Among our main clients were the huge construction projects: The Øresund Bridge and the Great Belt. Even further back, I worked as a freelance video producer and was also producing content for youth TV shows at the Danish Broadcasting service (DR).

The African connection

Many of the projects I work with, has a connection to African subjects, e.g. photos and videos with artists from the continent, or information material about development projects and fair trade producers. For more than 10 years I was head of PR for the annual Couleur Café festival in Copenhagen and project coordinator for the past 6 editions (until 2023). I am also directly involved with promotion of musicians and "African culture" in Denmark. Earlier I have been involved with several other African cultural projects, including the Miss Africa Denmark event and concerts with Magic System, Alpha Blondy amongst others. I edit and update the AfriCalendar blog and cultural calendar on facebook.com/africadk
