What you'll do
The Bund or Waitan is a waterfront area in central Shanghai which is about 1.5 kilometers long. The area centers on a section of Zhongshan Road within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River in the eastern part of Huangpu District. The area along the river faces the modern skyscrapers of Lujiazui in the Pudong District. The Bund usually refers to the buildings and wharves on this section of the road, as well as some adjacent areas. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Shanghai. In this place where history and modernity meet, you and I will start an interesting journey of photography. The Bund is a must-go for many foreign tourists. The Bund Source, Waibaidu Bridge, Chenyi Square and the historical building groups are all famous landmarks. Besides that, there are a lot of alleys that are not known to ordinary tourists, which styles are in sharp contrast with the modernity of shanghai city; there are also some historical buildings with few tourists inside. With my guide, all of these can be part of our photography experience. The alleys with the backdrop of the skyscrapers, the classical marble walls, the bustling streets and the neon buildings, all can be the backdrop of our shooting. In addition, there are some classical buildings that are not known to tourists are also our destination, in there I will capture your best moments. I will contact you in advance before the experience. After doing some simple understanding, I will give you some suggestions related to the dressing and the itinerary. On the day of the experience, we will walk together near the Bund, together to find the stylish backdrops of shanghai style and some fantastic scene of sunlight and shadow. When shooting, I will also give you some gesture guidance, just to capture your most beautiful and natural moments; after the experience, I can use camera wifi to send you the original pictures on the spot, and within three days, I will send you retouched pictures through network disk or email.
I am a freelance photographer, certified photography blogger, and now I work as a scientist in an American company after obtaining my master's degree in Chemistry. Photography has always been an indispensable part of my life, as a science and technology developer, the fascination of photography art, the collision of literature and science let me have a different understanding of art and aesthetics. Street documentary and portrait photography have always been the two most important parts of my photography life. In my spare time, I always take my camera and go to the streets to record all kinds of characters and dramatic scenes. For portrait photography, emotional style, fresh style, Japanese style, street shooting and other styles, can be easily controlled by me. Through my lens, I believe that I can capture and freeze every moving moments that belong to you. You also can find parts of my photography works on my Instagram: hank.rar
