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.
Other things to note
This is one to one photo tour, no other unfamiliar participants.
There are about 200 original pictures. Retouched photos 15+.
Please do not take heavy luggage which would be a burden during the shooting.
If you prepare several sets of clothing, then we will need to find a fitting room together.
The location and shooting time can be changed as you wish, but please do contact and discuss with me in advance.

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.

Where you'll be

We will meet at the Peace Hotel first, then go to the Bund, the Bund source, then walk to the Waibaidu Bridge, and also may go inside some historic buildings. In the whole photo tour, what you only need to do is to keep your best state, and my task is to capture your most beautiful moments. Of course, if you have your own ideas, I can also fine-tune the original plan to best meet your needs.

Hank was very accommodating as we had issues with delayed arrival. He was thoughtful to allow us to get a few minutes rest before the shoot. Hank was very easygoing and comfortable to work with. Highly recommend his AirBnB experience!

Hank is a very friendly and considerate photographer. He knows the site well and can take you to those places not many people know. I would recommend anyone who wants to have an unforgettable photography experience near the Bund to go with Hank.

What a great time we had. I book a photo session for two people for two hours but Hank gave us more. He didnt stop even when it was already passed the time. He was really thoughtful, when we asked whether he knew a pharmacy nearby, he didnt just answer where the location. Instead, he took us there and helped to translate. The picture he took was beyond expectation. We looked like we came out of a magazine cover. Even the raw pictures were great, we didnt have to wait for the retouched one since the raw pictures were already beautiful. It was worth every penny.

Hank did a great deal in ensuring that different aspects of the Bund and surrounding area were captured. He made me feel comfortable as I'm someone who doesnt take too many photos. Highly recommend.
