Local Lens: Discovering Hamburg’s Diverse Facets with @tomtehh
In this series, local Instagrammers show you their favorite places to shoot around where they live. To see more photos of Hamburg through Tom’s eyes, follow @tomtehh on Instagram.
“I love big-city photography, and Hamburg offers a great mix of traditional and new architecture,” says Hamburg local Tom Merkel (@tomtehh). Born and raised in the harbor city, he knows the details of Hamburg like the back of his hand. For this edition of #LocalLens he shares some of his favorite places to shoot in his hometown.
Speicherstadt: In this district you can find an eclectic mix of historical buildings, modern architecture and picturesque boats at the traditional harbor Traditionsschiffhafen. “The bridges in Speicherstadt offer picture-perfect views,” Tom explains. “The best time to shoot is at dusk so you can capture the light reflections on the water.” Tom’s tip: “Bring a tripod for long time exposure.”
U4 Überseequartier: “This subway station offers intriguing symmetrical elements that invite visitors to experiment with centered shots. You’ll get a better angle when you stand a level above the platform—this allows you to see an overview of the whole station.”
Sternschanze: With trendy people and raw graffiti this neighborhood is the perfect setup for street photography. Tom recommends coming here in the early morning “when the neighborhood slowly awakes and the streets come to life.”

For more bleak and dark shots from the streets of New York, follow @d_belov on Instagram.
“Everyday I find special moments happening on the streets of New York—a photo shoot for ‘Batman’ on the Brooklyn Bridge, or a movie set on Fifth Avenue. Even on bleak days I could show the dynamic life in the city. These things all inspire me,” says Instagrammer Dmitry Belov (@d_belov) who moved from Volgograd, Russia to New York six months ago. “I see New York through the movement of people, cars, and events. The roads of New York are mysterious, and they mesmerize me.”
