“My friend and I searched through the numerous Siem Reap Photo Workshop Courses which are reviewed in Trip Advisor and it did not take long for us to home in on Eric d Vries who seemed to have consistently good reviews – he did not disappoint.
From the outset Eric had us taking consistently great shots and it was not long before our confidence was such that under his careful eye we were off shooting subjects whilst making our own composition and camera settings.
The highlight of our time with Eric was the Monks Photoshot set amongst the ruins of a small Temple this was brilliant and even the Monks enjoyed Eric setting them in various poses for us to shoot.
There is no doubt that this was the highlight of our trip to Siem Reap and it was a joy to have a professional like Eric sharing his experience.
Next year we are going back for another Photo Workshop but we got so much out of the day course that we plan to go with Eric on his 1 Week Tour of Cambodia which we think will be awsome…”

Angkor Temples Siem Reap

A few pics from the Angkor Temples Photo Tour yesterday with a lovely couple from the USA. They only had 1 camera with them so they borrowed my Nikon DSLR which I bought specially for my clients to use. It’s the rainy season here in Cambodia so we ended the tour before the rain came in late afternoon…

Interested in a Angkor Temples Photo Tour (full or half day) check out my website… here.

Yet another Phnom Penh tour

Another Phnom Penh Photo Tour this week, now with a lovely couple from Italy. They only had 1 day in Phnom Penh so we did a mix of some Phnom Penh highlights and some street photography sessions throughout the full day. Althought the weather forecast predicted an overcast and rain we kept it dry…
After a short introduction at their accommodation about camera settings (they borrowed the Nikon DSLR) and a plan for the day we hit the streets.
Here’s just a nice example of a friendly monk we bumped into at a very local and hard to find pagoda downtown. The image is taken with the Fuji X100T with prime 23 mm lens…

The Angkor Monochromes

20 years of photographing the Angkor Temples
The definite collection of 150 black and white photographs shot mostly during the photo tours and workshops showing the main temples and the remote ones across Cambodia. It started with a visit of some temple highlights of Angkor Thom, Ta Prohm and Angkor Wat back in april 2000 shooting analog. After exploring the area a couple of times in the period 2002 to 2009 I started the photo tours and workshops which are still ongoing at the moment. It turned out that after all these years I’ve been to Angkor Park over 600 times to this day. And it will continue…
The 150 monochromes plates showing in this book are my personal choice and most of the spots I photographed are still scheduled in my tours and workshops although some parts of temple sites are under heavy restoration. Angkor Park sees more visitors nowadays then back in april 2000 so to preserve the ancient buildings and details the authorities came with new rules and regulations to protect the sites using fences and ropes. A good example is the very popular Ta Prohm temple just outside Angkor Thom with restricted areas and new build stages for the selfie-taking visitors… But don’t get me wrong. With a little creativity you still get the iconic shots you want. Anyways… Here they are, 150 definite monochromes of incredible temple overviews and details throughout parts of Cambodia as my personal best.
