Beijing China

Looking for a good fixer in Beijing. Will be working two together, a photographer with a writer. Having never been to China before I wonder what is the best way to go about doing this, as per visas etc – please advise.

Its not a clandestine reportage, if anything its positive towards China. Photos need to be taken in educational and public institutions. We will be spending a while following a youth or youths in education, at home and in public places

Does one need an invitation from the public/education institution to be able to photograph in such places?
