In the 1940s, Jura trained in photography and film. After World War II he began his career as a cameraman for short documentary films. In 1963, he was awarded the Filmband in Gold for his work on The Endless Night and, in 1964, the same award again for The River Line. From 1988, Jura lived in Munich and worked as cameraman for the Wiener Musikverein before moving back to Bad Ischl.
