Street Hunt No 12 - Street Photography in Hamburg, Germany

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

About a month ago, on the 12th of December to be precise, I flew to Hamburg in Germany to record a Street Hunt video, sponsored by our friends at Cosyspeed. Cosyspeed for all of you that don’t know is the German company that makes the high quality Camslinger camera bags that can be worn around your waist or your shoulder. My trip lasted from the 12th of December to the 15th of December and 2 days after I returned to my base in Crete, I wrote a detailed post about my experiences there as a Street Hunter. If you haven’t read the post “Street Photography in Hamburg, Germany”, I recommend you give it a read before you watch today’s Street Hunt video, as it will prepare you nicely for what you will see.

Visiting a foreign city and country to film a Street Hunt was a challenge for me. I was concerned about the German laws of privacy a lot before my trip and I was trying to think of ways to photograph in the street without showing faces. I had a talk with Thomas Ludwig of Cosyspeed before I arrived to Germany and he reassured me not to worry. After a few minutes of Street Hunting in Hamburg, I saw that the people of the city didn’t mind to be photographed. Some reacted very positively to it and that was a pleasant surprise to me.

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

This weekend I visited the city of Hamburg in Germany, to film a Street Hunt video sponsored by Cosyspeed, the company that produces the Camslinger camera bags that are a great companion for any Street Photographer. I stayed in Hamburg for 3 nights and during that time I was lucky enough to meet some very interesting and nice people, to walk the fabulous streets of Hamburg, to taste local food and drinks and to learn a few German words that helped me get around. My trip was full of Street Photography and walking, full of amazement at the architecture and the sheer size of the city and finally full of excitement about seeing new things! The only thing I thought I didn’t handle all too well was the cold. I know that many of you live in equally cold places, some in even colder ones, but being used to the moderate weather of Crete, I felt quite chilly. So, I kept moving, I kept going until by the end of my trip I had covered 22 solid hours of walking. Would I do it again? 100% yes!!! If I woke up in Hamburg tomorrow, I would be on the street for hours on end taking photographs of everything that interested me!
