Tripoli Lebanon

I’m going to Lebanon in april to do a story on Syrian refugees. Do someone know any journalists or photographers based in Beirut or Tripoli I can meet and talk to? Also, has anyone here been to Tripoli lately? Please email me

Tommy, I’ve been to Tripoli last year when there was not too much tension yet, and the first thing I noticed is that the locals are not at all confortable with someone carrying a camera around. My only 2 tips:
1. hire a fixer if possible, and
2. try not to shoot the harbor.
You can contact Joe Kesrouani in Beirut (you’ll find his email address at http://joekesrouani.viewbook.com/). He can eventually give some advice or may put you in contact with people more familiar with the area.

Thank you so much! I’ve been in contact with some people, but no one of them knows any good fixers (that you can trust). Do you know anyone?
