    Speak to the papers and magazines, you will need to have digital capture but the mere fact you are there may interest them.

    I am hunting for an apartment in smartshangai.com, possibly in the French Concession, or somewhere else convenient to JiaoTong.

    I have absolutely no advice to offer, and don't mean to hijack the thread, but wow... sounds like an awesome plan for you. I hope you will blog about it!! Best wishes on preparing, and looking forward to hearing about your adventures.

    So, you know what I am asking you

    1) If anyone wants to meet, or maybe pointers to local photographers and other artists
    2) Photographic stores that still carry analog materials and could develop a C-41 film
    3) Any other kinds of advice, photographic project ideas, living tips, that sort of thing

    Hey Ari, I am in Shanghai at least once a month and normallr for one or two weeks. Next trip is in week of 21st Feb....would love to meet. let me know if you are up for it. Send me a PM.

    For the photographic store, try the photographic centre on Luban Lu (don't have address on hand)..it's a treasure trove of analog equipment too...too bad the Renmimbi is so strong right now.

    For living trips...well I lived there 4 years, and the place changes quickly, buut for sure you will find everyting you need there. For photographic tips, well it's an easy place to photograph and like all rapidly changing metropolis's there are endless subjects.

    Good mention on the strong renminbi. Photographic equipment in Shanghai is not cheap... bring whatever equipment you need (other than film).

    I used to spend a lot of time in China, but have never been to Shanghai except to change planes. I'm sure it is a street photographer's paradise and that you will enjoy your stay immensly. Like Suzanne, I hope you start a blog to keep us up-to-date with your experiences. I have only good memories of China and trust yours will be the same.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    Thank you, once more.
    I am opening up all possibilities both of cooperation and of learning opportunities.
    I am hungry to devour as much culture and knowledge as I can.
    Also, I am speaking to people here, just in case someone cares about my trip. Maybe, I can even get an artistic project going, so creating not just learning.

    The whole equipment thing has me thinking a lot.
    I don't know if I can get film before I leave and I don't have that much.
    I plan to bring a whole lot of cameras though, the Hasselblad or the Rolleiflex, an Holga or two and my DSLR.

    We'll see.
