Exchange ideas, stories, lies and knowledge but really to just take photos.

I am a member of the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra on tour in and around Shanghai from May 27th to June 5th. I fly out on June 5th around midnight, but have the whole day free and would love to meet other photographers of all levels, to shoot photos and exchange ideas. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Check out my website at www.fenkerpics.com. I am interested in any and all sorts of photography and open for any suggestions. If anyone is interested in coming to our concert on Thursday evening (Shanghai Oriental Art Center) let me know. I may be able to get a couple of tickets. Looking forward to any and all responses. Regards,
W. Fenker
ps - I have questions about local customs - carrying photo gear through customs, crime rate etc. Anyone care to correspond with me?

    I'm not sure my connection is working, but here goes. I'm sorry that it is not in the weekend, but since i am a tourist, this is what i can offer. It seems that there is much animo for this sort of excusions, so it mAy be a good idea for all you Shanghai-ers to organise more of these things. I know i would love to go along in the future activities as well, but it is not to be. I wish all of you who cannot make it next week many happy photo hours together. I will ask about tickets to our concert next week, and posthttps://secure.meetup.com/register/?returnUri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.meetup.com%2FShanghai-Photography-Meetup-Group%2Fjoin%2F%3Fgj%3D%26eventId%3D120000652%26a%3D&gj=&eventId=120000652&c=3461182&urlkey=&a=&number= the results. It will probably be first come fist served, so if you are really interested, follow this closely. Regards, Bud Fenker. ps, I play French Horn

    Yes unfortunately I have work :( It would be nice if it was in the weekend.

    I think that weekdays in the morning are a bit of a problem for most people who are not tourists or unemployed.

    Thank you Enanuel. This sounds interesting. Anybody else interested in starting earlier and then meeting up with the group? I only have the one day in Shanghai and would like to make the most of it. Say begin at 9 or 9:30 somewhere else? I am open to suggestions.

    No problem meeting up with a fellow dutchman. As for the points you mention, carrying camera gear through customs is not an issue. been through customs loads of times with some camera stuff on me, its a non-issue. Crime rates, it's no different than any other modern place, meaning there are always conmen and pickpockets to find, but as long as you don't seek out trouble, trouble won't find you either. The biggest one is phone theft. Don't leave bags unattended or its deemed "property of the community"...
