🌊 Fencing and a night of jazz
Local of the Week | Get to know HK through Carsten Schael’s lens
My name is Carsten Schael. Originally from Hamburg, Germany, I arrived in Hong Kong in August 1991. I am a professional photographer working for local and international clients.

As Local of the Week I wanted to let everyone see bits and pieces of what I find cool about the city.
‘The Ka Long Effect’ It seems I need to get myself signed up for some fencing lessons.
Very sad images from Germany that show people struggling to make sense of the destructive power of nature.
Pedestrianise Queen's Road Central, our inner city would benefit greatly if we could give more spaces to pedestrians and cyclists, and the air would be better too.
Places to go
Can't wait to go back to the Peel Fresco Music Lounge on Peel Street, Central.
Jazz, cool atmosphere and a great place to hang.
Looking forward to seeing new fresh art at Fine Art Asia in October at HKCEC.
Podcast recommendation: My favourite Hong Kong Podcast is ‘Hong Kong Heritage’ produced by Annemarie Evans of RTHK
And following the Olympic theme
Go and visit the Cheung Chau Windsurfing Centre. It is the cradle of Hong Kong's first Gold Medalist, Lee Lai-Shan.
Carsten’s work has been featured in government announcements, advertisment, magazine covers and more.
But what’s not been featured is his secret for how to engage with both local wildlife and children at the same time. Find out on today’s Paid Tide!
