Fixer Lebanon for Hezbollag accredidation urgently needed

I’m right now in Beirut and need urgently a fixer to help me get the accreditation with hezbollah straight to be allowed to shoot in the southern suburbs. I"m working on a project on Islam and Youth. The fixer should have experience in dealing with Hezbollah and preferably organised the press credentials for other journalists / photographers before. Does anybody have any recommendations?

HI Claudius,

Unfortunately, there’s no quick way to get approval/permissions from Hezbollah. I did work on the same topic in 2008, and even after having lived and worked here for two years at that point, with a good network of fixers in Lebanon, and the groups press people knowing me, it still took the better part of 3 months to set up. Hez is quite suspicious of members of the foreign press who live here, and can be downright paranoid when it comes to visiting photographers/journalists. I would try to explain to their press office what you’re interested in doing one more time, but I would also look for some different ways to illustrate the story as well in the likely event that they refuse you access.
