A rich and fullfilling experience!

“Eric is a true fine art photographer. I chose to book a tour with him because I liked his photographs. He brought me to exactly the kind of location I had hoped to visit, and it was not one I had known about. Koh Ker was amazing, we had the site to ourselves, the light was excellent, and I got some of the best photographs of my Cambodia visit there. He helped us avoid the crowds in Beng Mealea, and gave me plenty of time to take all the photos I wanted. We spent a long day together and he was patient and flexible. Eric also got me out of my comfort zone, which was good. I brought with me a manual focus wide angle lens which previously I had only used for astro photography. I was never good at focusing manual focus lenses by eye, and he convinced me to use the distance indicators on the lens to focus…”

“I was afraid that the photos would not be that sharp using only the distance indicators but when I got home I found the photos were just as sharp as when I used auto focus on my other lenses. Now I feel empowered with that lens to do more. He challenged me to think about why I was taking a photograph, and whether the approach I was using was true to my goal. He challenged me to try to take fewer photographs and make them count. He made me think more about composition. He gave me pointers about taking other kinds of photographs I wanted while in Cambodia outside of the topic area of our tour. He was good company throughout the day and we had interesting conversations about artistic photography, street photography, life in Cambodia and other topics. Thank you very much, Eric!”
